SANS Virginia Beach Security Training to Offer Insight into Hactivism, Online Protests and Real-World Consequences

InfoSec Training Event Features Two Weeks of Hands-On Immersion Style Courses

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 22, 2016

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Virginia Beach 2016 taking place August 22- September 2. The event offers attendees a rare opportunity to take two full courses back-to-back in a chosen discipline or a one week course option. SANS will also offer bonus evening discussions covering hot topics such as card fraud, jailbreak for mobile devices, hactivism and more.

"In an Internet-connected world, national, state and local political conflicts and social issues such as officer involved shootings can quickly attract the attention of a worldwide audience. When hactivists become involved, concerns for critical infrastructure, network security, public safety, and individual officer safety can quickly arise," said Detective Cindy Murphy, President of Gillware Digital Forensics and a former detective with the City of Madison, WI Police Department. "Join me at SANS Virginia Beach for my evening discussion, Hactivism: Online Protest, Real-World Consequences. During this talk I will share insight into the groups involved, motivations and methods used by hactivists and examples of incidents where hactivism has led to real-world consequences."

In addition to her evening discussion, Detective Murphy will teach the FOR585: Advanced Smartphone Forensics course. This in-depth course provides examiners and investigators with advanced skills to detect, decode, decrypt, and correctly interpret evidence recovered from mobile devices. Also offered at SANS Virginia Beach is the newly updated SEC575: Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking course, SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth, SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations and more.
