BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Demand for information security professionals is very high. SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, will prepare InfoSec professionals to take advantage of these career opportunities at SANS Las Vegas 2017. Taking place January 23 – 30, SANS Las Vegas will feature hands-on immersion style training courses designed to help InfoSec professionals of every level accelerate their career potential and create a much needed pipeline of knowledgeable talent.
According to security expert and SANS Senior Instructor, Paul A. Henry, "As the world becomes more connected, it becomes less safe. With more and more (critical) data being shared over the Internet, there is a greater risk to personal, financial and other pertinent assets and information. For this reason, technical certifications in security are becoming increasingly valuable and in high demand. One of the most respected certifications today is the GIAC GSEC certification. Across both government and commercial sectors, the GIAC GSEC certification is a prerequisite for employment within the IT sector."
SANS offers cyber security training courses for highly seasoned InfoSec professionals as well as those new to the field and transitioning from more general IT roles. SANS Las Vegas will feature SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style taught by Paul Henry, which will prepare students for the GIAC GSEC certification exam. For more seasoned professionals, SANS will offer SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits and Incident Handling and the MGT512: SANS Security Leadership Essentials for Managers with Knowledge Compression™ course for advancing managers.
