Top Cyber Security Professionals Head to Boston for SANS Security Training Event

Will Offer Proven Techniques for Dealing with Today's Most Challenging Cyber Security Threats

  • Bethesda, MD
  • June 19, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Boston 2017 taking place August 7 - 12. SANS Boston 2017 offers budding and highly seasoned security professionals the opportunity to learn from some of the world's top cyber security professionals. Included among the instructors is Boston-based Digital Forensics and Incident Response expert Rob Lee who will teach the SANS FOR500: Windows Forensic Analysis course.

According to Lee, "You can't protect what you don't know about and many people are unaware Windows is silently recording an unbelievable amount of data on its users. Understanding forensic capabilities and artifacts is a core component of information security yet many lack the necessary skills to be successful. FOR500 teaches students how to mine this mountain of data including how to recover, analyze, and authenticate forensic data on Windows systems, track particular user network activity, and organize findings for use in incident response, internal investigations, and civil/criminal litigation. Anyone involved in digital forensic analysis, this is a course you won't want to miss!"
