Top SANS Instructors Head to Virginia Beach for Two Week Information Security Training Event

Dr. Johannes Ullrich to Teach SANS' New Intrusion Detection In-Depth Course

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 13, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Virginia Beach 2017 taking place August 21 - September 1. This two week training event offers students the unique opportunity to take back-to-back courses or select a week of their choice. Included among the 16 hands-on immersion style courses offered is the newly updated SEC503 Intrusion Detection In-Depth Course.

According to the CTO of SANS' Internet Storm Center and SEC503 instructor Dr. Johannes Ullrich, "Based on student feedback, we significantly increased the "hands-on" part of the Intrusion Detection In-Depth class. Using current threats like ransom ware, covert channels and spear phishing attacks, we created three scenarios that students analyze as part of a whole-day exercise. To provide students with even more keyboard time and to enable them to use the tools and techniques learned in class as soon as they return to their job, the class now uses SANS NetWars as a capstone exercise."
