SANS to Help Groom the Next Generation of InfoSec Leaders at Baltimore, MD Training Event

Will Share How to Get Ahead by Building Plans for Technical Staff and the Executive Level

  • Bethesda, MD
  • March 1, 2016

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for the SANS Baltimore Spring 2016 information security training event taking place May 9-14 in Maryland. The event, which is geared towards high-level cybersecurity and InfoSec professionals, will offer management and cybersecurity courses designed to empower professionals who want to further advance their careers.

Internationally recognized cyber security expert and retired U.S. Navy Captain G. Mark Hardy will teach the completely updated MGT512: SANS Security Leadership Essentials for Managers with Knowledge Compression™ course. According to Hardy, "Many technical people are promoted to positions of leadership without having adequate training as to how to manage their teams. Also, successful managers are often assigned security as a new responsibility without having a requisite technical background. This course addresses both technical and leadership issues by providing a baseline understanding of what is essential to succeed as a business security leader."

SANS Baltimore Spring offers comprehensive hands-on immersion style training courses in IT security, digital forensics and security management. Included among the technical courses are SEC501: Advanced Security Essentials - Enterprise Defender, SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations, and FOR408: Windows Forensic Analysis. Additional management courses include MGT514: IT Security Strategic Planning, Policy and Leadership and MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP® Certification.
