Kick off the New Year with SANS Security East 2017 in New Orleans (January 9-14)


James Lyne

James Lyne is Global Head of Security Research at the security firm Sophos. He is a self-professed 'massive geek' and has technical expertise spanning a variety of the security domains from forensics to offensive security. James has worked with many organisations on security strategy, handled a number of severe incidents and is a frequent industry advisor. He is a certified instructor at the SANS Institute and is often a headline presenter at industry conferences.

James firmly believes that one of the biggest challenges we face is in making security accessible and interesting to those outside the industry. As a result, he takes every opportunity to educate on security threats and best practice - always featuring live demonstrations and scenarios of how cyber criminals operate in the real world.

James has given multiple TED talks, including at the main TED event. He's also appeared on a long list of national TV programmes to educate the public including CNN, NBC, BBC News, Bill Maher and John Oliver. As a spokesperson for the industry, he is passionate about talent development, regularly participating in initiatives to identify and develop new talent for the industry

James Lyne made this course a tremendous experience. James made it his personal mission to make sure he carried everyone with him no matter what their skill level is. Outstanding! - S. Khan, EADS-NA
