SANS to Offer Intro to Information Security Course at San Antonio Training Event

Aims to Build San Antonio's Cyber Security Workforce with Courses for Budding and Highly Seasoned Security Professionals

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 12, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced cyber security expert and San Antonio, Texas resident Keith Palmgren will teach his popular SEC301: Intro to Information Security course at SANS San Antonio 2017 taking place August 6 - 11. The SANS' SEC301 course is a unique five day, hands-on immersive deep-dive designed to help those interested in cyber security to get up to speed very quickly.

According to Palmgren, author of the SEC301 course, "Everyone is born with the same knowledge of computers, networks, and security - which is absolutely nothing. Therefore, we must all begin with the basics. The SANS SEC301 course is unique among introductory cyber security courses in that it makes very few assumptions about prior knowledge; we explain every term, acronym and concept completely and thoroughly. After five intense days of in-depth explanations and hands-on labs, students leave the classroom with a very solid understanding of essential security concepts, networking, cryptography, and the myriad of cyber security technologies used to secure a network. Students also have the opportunity to take the highly coveted GISF certification exam to prove to the world that they know the material covered in SEC301."
