New year, new threats. To help security professionals prepare for the new threats the New Year brings SANS will hold its first training event of the year, SANS Security East 2014, January 20 - 25 in New Orleans. The instructor lineup for this event features SANS Faculty Fellows and Senior Instructors. This is a unique opportunity to get instruction from SANS Faculty Fellows: Dr. Eric Cole, Rob Lee, Hal Pomeranz, Ed Skoudis, and SANS Senior Instructors: Fred Kerby, Dave Shackleford, Kevin Johnson, Mike Poor, James Tarala, Joshua Wright all at the same event. This team will ensure attendees not only learn the material, but that they are able to use it the day they return to work.

SANS Security East 2014's lineup of hands-on courses are ideal for Cybersecurity and Infosec professionals at every level and in all roles. Ten courses will be taught by the industry's top-rated instructors. In addition to courses, SANS will offer special events and bonus evening sessions where the latest threats will be shared by SANS instructors.

Given the critical role that malicious software played in computer intrusions in the recent years, Hal Pomeranz security expert and course instructor of the FOR610: Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques course, states "the need for Malware Analysis has come a long way." Pomeranz adds, "Targeted malware, malware as a service, proliferating exploit kits... there's hardly a significant security incident that doesn't involve malware. Malware analysis and reverse engineering skills are a core component of modern incident response teams. This is no longer optional or a 'nice to have'."

Alumni of FOR610 (five-day course) within the past two years can take advantage of a limited time offer to attend *Day 6 only* at a significantly discounted rate. To take advantage of this special savings, register using FOR610Day6NOLA.
