Secure India @Bangalore 2013

Bangalore, India | Mon, Apr 29, 2013 - Sat, May 4, 2013

We would like to invite you to Bangalore where we will be hosting SANS Secure India @Bangalore 2013 on 29 April-4 May. Join us at the Royal Orchid Hotel in Bangalore where we will offer two great security courses. This event will be taught by SANS' top instructors who ensure that you not only learn the material, but that you can apply it immediately when you return to the office.

Choose one of these dynamic courses:

SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth (GIAC-GCIA) presented by Johannes Ullrich, Ph.D.

Author Statement - When I was invited to be a member of a computer incident response team in the late 1990's (just after Al Gore invented the Internet), there was no formal cybersecurity training available. Consequently, I learned on the job and made my share (and then some) of mistakes. I was so naive that I tried to report an attack on our network by a host with an IP address in the 192.168 reserved private network, available for use by anyone. Needless to say, I got a very embarrassing enlightenment when someone clued me in.

With the benefit of experience and the passage of time, there are many lessons to be shared with you. This knowledge affords you the opportunity to learn and practice in the classroom to prepare you for the fast-paced, always-interesting job of intrusion detection analysts. - Judy Novak
SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling (GIAC-GCIH)

Author Statement - My favorite part of teaching Hacker Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling is watching students when they finally get it. It's usually a two-stage process. First, students begin to realize how truly malicious some of these attacks are. Some students have a very visceral reaction, occasionally shouting out "Oh, shoot!" when they see what the bad guys are really up to. But if I stopped the process at that point, I'd be doing a disservice. The second stage is even more fun. Later in the class, students gradually realize that, even though the attacks are really nasty, they can prevent, detect, and respond to them. Using the knowledge they gain in this track, they know they'll be ready when a bad guy launches an attack against their systems. And being ready to thwart the bad guys is what it's all about. - Ed Skoudis

Both courses are associated with GIAC Certification (Global Information Assurance Certification) http://www.giac.org/

See what our past attendees have told us:

"For someone who is responsible for security, IDS forensics, etc. the knowledge transferred in SEC503 was phenomenal." - Ronald Jean, Verizon Wireless
"Great breakdown for people new to intrusion detection, yet the instructor provides extra information useful to analysis of all levels." - Eric Hamilton, Agrium, Inc.
"The SEC504 lab was challenging and forced out-of-the-box thinking." - Rafael Cabrera, Air Force
"This SEC504 course was a good high-level overview of a robust incident response approach. The material would be valuable for organizations building an incident response team." - Nicholas Capalbo, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
