SANS Institute to Tackle Credit Card Fraud at Minneapolis Information Security Training Event

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 10, 2015

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the SANS Minneapolis 2015 security training event taking place July 20 - 25. The event features hands-on immersion style security training and evening talks addressing some of today's most complex security issues including credit card fraud.

According to G. Mark Hardy, a SANS Instructor and the CEO and founder of CardKill Inc., "Card fraud costs $16 billion annually, and it's not getting better. It's just a matter of time until we read about the next Target or Home Depot. My talk, Card Fraud 101, will provide valuable insight into how these big card heists are pulled off. I will detail why chip-and-pin won't solve America's card fraud problems and discuss why new electronic payment systems may be vulnerable to compromise."

The SANS Minneapolis 2015 information security training event will feature hands-on, immersion style training courses for budding and highly seasoned security professionals. From security essentials to hacker techniques, penetration testing, forensic analysis and ICS/SCADA security, SANS Minneapolis offers courses for InfoSec professionals at every level. For advancing managers who want to get up to speed quickly on information security issues and terminology, Hardy will also teach the MGT512: SANS Security Leadership Essentials for Managers with Knowledge Compression™ course. Managers participating in this course won't just learn about security, they will learn how to manage security.
