SANS Houston Security Training Event to Tackle Cloud Security

Will Offer Insight into Often Overlooked Security Risks when Migrating to the Cloud

  • Bethesda, MD
  • April 12, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced its return to Houston, TX June 5 - 10 for SANS Houston 2017. SANS Houston 2017 will feature hands-on immersion style training courses for security professionals at every level. Bonus evening discussions will round out the event. Included among the discussions is an eye-opening talk by David R. Miller (@DRM_CyberDude) on cloud security entitled, Look Before You Leap - Oops! Too Late.

According to security and compliance consultant and SANS instructor David R. Miller, "The benefits associated with cloud computing are plenty. One of the biggest reasons companies migrate IT assets and services into the cloud is the cost savings associated with no longer having to own and maintain their own data center. But what about data security? Join me at SANS Houston where I will open eyes to overlooked security considerations and share what companies need to know before placing their most valuable information assets in the hands of strangers."

SANS Houston 2017 will feature eight information security courses taught by the industry's top instructors. Included among the course line-up are SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style, MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP(R) Certification taught by David R. Miller, SEC501: Advanced Security Essentials - Enterprise Defender, SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling, and MGT514: IT Security Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership.
