SANS to Offer Mac Forensic Analysis Course at San Francisco Security Training Event

  • Bethesda, MD
  • September 20, 2016

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS San Francisco 2016 taking place November 27 - December 2. SANS will offer a variety of hands-on immersion-style training courses including the SANS FOR518: Mac Forensic Analysis course. This course offers detailed insight into the tools and techniques necessary to take on any Mac case without hesitation.

"From coffee shops to corporate boardrooms, Apple devices are seemingly everywhere. Yet despite the increasing popularity of these devices, most digital forensic investigators and analysts remain focused on Windows-only machines," said Sarah Edwards, SANS Instructor and FOR518 Author. "Times have changed, to be successful investigators must be able to take on any Mac case without hesitation. The FOR518: Mac Forensic Analysis course provides the tools and techniques to enable Windows-based investigators to broaden their analysis capabilities and gain the confidence and knowledge to comfortably analyze any Mac or iOS system."

SANS San Francisco offers a mix of courses covering such topics as IT security, pen testing, security management and digital forensics. Bonus evening discussions will cover nation state attackers, iOS location forensics, credit card fraud and web application vulnerabilities.
