SANS to Host Baltimore Information Security Training Event

Cyber Threat Intelligence, Ethical Hacking and Smartphone Forensics among the Courses Offered

  • Bethesda, MD
  • August 15, 2016

The SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced its return to Baltimore, MD October 10 -15. The SANS Baltimore 2016 training event will feature 10 hands-on immersion style training courses taught by real-world practitioners. Included among the courses is the new FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence course which trains individuals and teams to detect, scope, and select resilient courses of action in response to intrusions and data breaches.

According to Rebekah Brown, threat intelligence lead for Rapid7 and co-instructor of the FOR578 course alongside SANS instructor Robert M. Lee, "There is a high demand for cyber threat intelligence analysts in the community - we've reached a point where we need trained and capable analysts to support security operations and to inform leadership on the threats facing organizations. Threat intelligence provides both of these things, and FOR578 is one of the best places to get this crucial training."

For those wanting to learning more about threat intelligence, Brown will present a bonus evening discussion entitled Analyze, Act, Share: Avoiding Intelligence Failures. This talk will analyze the three areas that contribute to intelligence failures and how they apply specifically to cyber threat intelligence. It will step through ways to identify and address these problems when they appear, and how to properly position your program to avoid them in the first place.

**PLEASE NOTE: An instructor change has occurred since this announcement went out. Due to scheduling conflicts, Rebekah Brown will no longer be teaching at SANS Baltimore 2016. Robert M. Lee will teach the FOR578 as a solo instructor.
