SANS returns to Prague with a quartet of popular IT security training courses

  • London
  • March 23, 2016

SANS Institute will be running a 6-day cyber security training event in Prague from the 9th to 14th of May featuring 4 popular courses including the recently updated SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking. The event will take place at the Angelo Hotel, Prague and includes training in a classroom like environment, under the supervision of a SANS Instructor.

As SANS most popular network penetration course, SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking provides a comprehensive coverage of tools, techniques, and methodologies for network penetration testing and prepares InfoSec professionals to conduct high-value penetration testing projects step-by-step and end-to-end.

The course will be led by Erik Van Buggenhout, SANS Instructor and head of technical security services at nViso, a Brussels-based IT security firm.

"During this 6-day course we will teach you all of the techniques you need to start delivering high-value penetration tests," says Van Buggenhout, "We will touch upon detailed reconnaissance and advanced scanning of target networks. After identifying targets, we'll look at a broad number of exploitation techniques that can help you measure business risk by demonstrating the vulnerability at hand. We will also do a deep-dive into post-exploitation techniques, password attacks and web applications as you pivot through the target network modelling techniques of real attackers."

The event will also host SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style led by Tim Garcia, SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth led by David Hoelzer and SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations led by Bryan Simon.
