SANS Announces Agenda for Los Angeles Information Security Training Event

New Security Operations Center Management Course to be Offered

  • Bethesda, MD
  • May 10, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced SANS course author and instructor Chris Crowley's new course MGT517: Managing Security Operations: Detection, Response, and Intelligence will take place July 10-15 at SANS Los Angeles - Long Beach 2017. This course will arm students with a roadmap to design, build and operate an effective security operations center tailored to the needs of their organization. Crowley will also deliver the keynote address, Tools and Techniques for Assessing Suspected Android Malware.

Per Crowley, "Android malware is substantially more common than iOS malware. This is due in part to Android users' ability to enable the "Unknown sources - Allow installation of apps from unknown sources" and install applications from anywhere. For businesses that allow Android use, this talk is a must attend. Join me in Los Angeles where I will share how to assess Android applications to determine if an application is suitable for use within an organization."

Additional courses offered include SEC301: Intro to Information Security, SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style and FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting.
