SANS 2016 Orlando Event to Offer Cybersecurity Training for Professionals at all Levels

Special Courses Available for Those Looking to Start a Career in Cybersecurity

  • December 7, 2015

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced SANS 2016 in Orlando, FL taking place March 12 - 21, 2016. This extensive training event is open to cybersecurity professionals in the public and private sectors at every level as well as those looking to break into a career in cybersecurity.

Job postings for cybersecurity openings have grown three times as fast as openings for IT jobs overall and it takes companies longer to fill cybersecurity positions than other IT jobs. That's bad for employers but good news for cybersecurity workers, who can command an average salary premium of nearly $6,500 per year, or 9%, more than other IT workers 1.

"Never before has the need for cyber security professionals been as high as it is today. Public and private organizations of every size are under attack, causing the demand for workers to exceed supply," said Dr. Eric Cole, SANS Fellow. "SANS Orlando is a unique training event offering hands-on, immersion style training for cybersecurity professionals at every level. From highly seasoned professionals wanting to advance their career and skillset, to newbies wanting to break into this highly sought after field, SANS Orlando has something for everyone."

SANS Orlando features an extensive line-up of courses ranging from one and two-day courses to four, five and even six-day courses. The SEC301: Intro to Information Security and SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style courses were designed for those just starting or looking to break into a career in cyber security. For seasoned professionals, SANS offers a variety of courses including FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence, MGT415: A Practical Introduction to Cyber Security Risk Management, SEC550: Active Defense, Offensive Countermeasures and Cyber Deception and more.
