SANS Institute is hosting its hugely popular SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling training for the first time in Milan. The course gives an in-depth insight into understanding attackers' tactics and strategies, enabling InfoSec professionals to find vulnerabilities and discover intrusions, whilst equipping response teams with a comprehensive incident-handling plan.

"The recently updated 'National Strategic Framework for Cyberspace Security' published by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers demonstrates the Italian Government's commitment to helping organisations tackle the growing problem of cyber security," says Matt Anderson, Director EMEA of the SANS Institute, "The first of eleven guidelines published in the document refers to the need to 'enhance the expertise of the intelligence community'. As the global leader in information security training, SANS is pleased to bring a world class training course to Milan"

SANS' Certified Instructor Steve Armstrong will lead the intensive, 6-day training programme, specifically tailored to benefit those who lead or are a part of an incident handling team. SANS' SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling also examines the legal issues associated with responding to computer attacks and Incident Handling.
