For more than 10 years, the Internet Storm Center has been providing free analysis and warning to our community. SANSFIRE 2014 is not just another training event. It is our annual "ISC Powered" event. It taps into the expertise behind our daily postings, podcasts, and data collection efforts by offering evening events focusing on current trends and actual relevant threats. The strength of the Internet Storm Center is its group of handlers, who are network security practitioners tasked with securing real networks just like you. This is your chance to meet some of them in person.
Each evening, the ISC handlers will share their most interesting experiences about the newest cyber hazards. These special presentations are free to everyone who pays for a course at SANSFIRE 2014. Some of this year's highlights include a talk by ISC handler Rob VandenBrink on Consulting from a Virtual Island; Adrien de Beaupre will present, Bust a Cap in a Web App With ZAP; Russ McRee will discuss, C3CM Defeating the Command, Control, and Communications of Digital Assailants; Manuel Humberto Santander Pelez, will talk about, Avoiding Cyberterrorism threats inside electrical substations. Dr. Johannes Ullrich, ISC Director and Marcus Sachs, ISC Director Emeritus will lead a State of the Internet Panel Discussion.
SANSFIRE 2014 hosts world-class instructors teaching top-quality SANS courses covering penetration testing and hacker exploits, security, management, wireless, forensics, secure coding, and much more. We also have one- and two-day courses to round out your training, which will be available at a steeply discounted price if taken with a five- or six-day course.
All SANS courses directly address the kinds of incidents reported by the Internet Storm Center in their daily diaries. And, it's a SANS promise that what you learn you'll be able to apply immediately back at the office. Here is what SANSFIRE 2013 attendees told us:
