Security Experts to Detail How to Respond Once a Breach Occurs at SANS Institute's Upcoming Boston Information Security Training Event

Providing Insight into the Latest Security Trends and Techniques

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 22, 2015

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced SANS Boston 2015 taking place August 3 - 8. Top cyber security experts will join forces to provide insight into today's most complex cyber attacks and offer proven techniques that will change the way organizations approach security.

Recently featured on CNN discussing the massive breach on U.S. government computer systems, SANS instructor and digital forensic expert, Rob Lee will detail how security professionals must respond following an attack. As the instructor for the FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics and Incident Response course, Lee will provide responders with advanced skills to hunt down, counter, and recover from a wide range of threats within enterprise networks.

According to Lee, "Attacks like the recent Office of Personnel Management breach where the attackers went unnoticed for a significant period of time happen very frequently. Organizations can no longer afford antiquated incident response techniques that fail to properly identify compromised systems, provide ineffective containment of the breach, and ultimately fail to rapidly remediate the incident. SANS' FOR508 course will provide security professionals with the tools and techniques necessary to combat the most complex data breaches and intrusions."

SANS Boston 2015 will feature hands-on immersion-style training courses and bonus evening sessions covering a wide range of topics including hacking, forensics, penetration testing, security operations, continuous monitoring and more. For a complete list of courses or to register, please visit:
