  • Lenny Zeltser
  • Wednesday, September 11th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Improve your communication skills by avoiding the top 10 mistakes in cybersecurity writing. You'll learn by spotting and fixing problems in excerpts from security reports, emails, and other content you regularly create.

The mistakes you'll see in this session will span the key aspects of writing:

  • Structure
  • Look
  • Words
  • Tone
  • Information

Discover how these elements work together to capture and hold your readers' attention and deliver your message. Learn how to be sure that you never make such mistakes. Benefit from the presenter's experience of writing in cybersecurity for over two decades.

The webinar will not only help you write better, but also preview the techniques covered in the short SANS course SEC402: The Secrets to Successful Cybersecurity Writing: Hack the Reader.
