SANS to Host Summer Information Security Training in Denver, Colorado

Growing Rocky Mountain Tech Industry has Created High Demand for SANS' InfoSec Training

  • April 28, 2016

In response to increased demand for local information security training, SANS Institute today announced its return to Colorado. SANS Rocky Mountain 2016, taking place July 11 - 16 in downtown Denver, will feature a number of security, digital forensics and security management courses. Attendees wishing to test their skills and go head-to-head with other InfoSec professionals will have the opportunity to participate in SANS' popular NetWars Tournament.

Included among the courses offered at SANS Rocky Mountain is the FOR408: Window Forensic Analysis course. FOR408 focuses on building in-depth digital forensics knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating systems.

When describing his experience taking the FOR408 course at a recent training event, Thomas Farley, with Raytheon, adds "The methods taught and the tools introduced will be very beneficial to me as an analyst performing examinations. The topics are informative and relevant and a great guide that leads to productivity."

The new FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence course will also be offered at the Rocky Mountain training event. This course will train security professionals and teams to detect, scope, and select resilient courses of action in response to intrusions and data breaches.

Bonus evening sessions will also be offered covering some of the hottest topics in information security. Session titles included are Open Source Threat Model for Prioritized Defense, Offensive Countermeasures, Active Defenses, and Internet Tough Guys, Quality not Quantity: Continuous Monitoring's Deadliest Events and more.
