  • July 23, 2015

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the final agenda for its largest training event of the year, SANS Network Security 2015. Taking place September 12 - 21 in Las Vegas, the event will feature more than 40 hands-on, immersion-style security training courses covering today's most complex cyber security challenges. SANS' popular bonus evening discussions will round out the agenda, as top cyber security experts share insight into riveting topics including what's new in Windows 10 and Server 2016 and iOS Game hacking.

"For organizations evaluating or planning to deploy Windows 10, understanding what's new is essential to ensuring security and calculating cost effectiveness," said Jason Fossen, SANS Fellow and Windows security expert. "My SANS Network Security discussion will provide an overview of what's new in Windows 10 and Server 2016, with a special focus on the security, enterprise management and user acceptance. I will talk about facial biometric logons with 3D cameras (Windows Hello), extending the display of a tablet or phone to an external monitor with universal apps that scale properly (Continuum), FIDO Alliance authentication to web sites without passwords (Passport), Windows as a Service (WaaS), Server Nano versus Server Core, SSH support in PowerShell, and more. For organizations planning to deploy Windows 10 and Server 2016, this is a must-attend talk."

Another timely topic that will be covered during Network Security is iOS game hacking. Pen test expert, Josh Wright, will explore this profitable market and the techniques that are used to cheat, hack, and even steal from iOS game developers. The techniques attendees will learn will be applicable to penetration testing and assessing the security of the iOS apps organizations use each and every day.
