  • August 2, 2017

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Phoenix-Mesa 2017 taking place in Mesa, Arizona October 9 - 14. Included among the course lineup is SANS' popular SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course which provides a comprehensive dive into the methodologies used to attack target environments.

According to SANS Instructor, Adrien de Beaupre (@adriendb), "SANS SEC560 is an excellent first course for someone who wishes to have penetration testing as a career. Unlike some other classes that may focus on tools, we focus on the methodology and techniques that make for a successful engagement. 560 emphasizes both the analytical and the hands-on technical skills that are necessary for penetration testing."
