SANS Boston InfoSec Training to Provide Insight into How to Advance an IT Career

Hands-On Immersion Style Training Courses will Tackle Today's Most Complex IT Security Challenges

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 1, 2016

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Boston 2016 taking place August 1 - 6. Courses will cover ethical hacking, mobile device security, Windows and advanced network forensic analysis, and more. The keynote address, Writing Tech: Career Advancement and You, and the security leadership course will provide insight into how to advance a career in IT.

"The InfoSec industry has no shortage of intelligent, highly skilled workers. Yet in spite of the enormous numbers of successful pen testers, forensic experts, ethical hackers, et al, their brilliance often goes unrecognized outside of their immediate circles. Join me at SANS Boston as I share the career benefits associated with writing about what you know and first-hand experiences that will help make publishing attempts a little easier," said keynote speaker and senior technical analyst with Counter Hack, Joshua Wright.

IT professionals interested in management opportunities will benefit from the MGT512: SANS Security Leadership Essentials For Managers with Knowledge Compression(TM) course, taught by SANS Fellow Stephen Northcutt. This completely updated course is designed to empower advancing managers who want to get up to speed quickly on information security issues and terminology. Attendees won't just learn about security, they will learn how to manage security.
