SANS Hands-On Computer Security Training Returns to Orlando for SANS 2013

Teaching Real-World Skills and Techniques so Cyber Defenders can Protect their Organization

  • Bethesda, MD
  • February 6, 2013

To help organizations stay ahead of cyber attackers, SANS will host SANS 2013, March 8 - 15 in Orlando, FL. Students will have the opportunity to learn key security concepts that can protect their organization against data breaches now and in the future.

"Fun while you learn! Just don't tell your manager. Every class gives you invaluable information from real world testing you cannot find in a book," said David Fava with The Boeing Company. When describing his experience at a recent SANS training event, Far'd Thomas, with Lockheed Martin, adds "This was an awesome and informative experience. My organization will benefit as a result. Thanks!"

SANS 2013 training will provide attendees with the essential skills necessary to protect a company's data. Students will benefit by being able to apply the materials they learn at the event immediately when they return to the office. Top information security experts teaching at SANS 2013 include Dr. Eric Cole, Ed Skoudis, Rob Lee, Dr. Johannes Ullrich, Tanya Baccam, Dave Shackleford, Lenny Zeltser and many more.

Classes at SANS 2013 in Orlando are starting to sell out. Register today to gain valuable training to advance your career as a cyber defender.

In conjunction with SANS 2013, SANS will host NetWars Tournament Play competition, an intense interactive, Internet based environment for computer attacks and defenses. NetWars will be held on March 13 and 14. For complete details regarding the SANS 2013 training event and to register, please visit:
