SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced its return to McLean, Virginia October 14 — 21 with SANS Tysons Corner Fall 2017 Security Training Event. Included among the stellar line-up of instructors is renowned cyber security expert and the Founder and CEO of Dragos, Robert M. Lee (@RobertMLee). Lee will teach the popular FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence course.

According to Lee, "It's vital that the security community think critically and evaluate various options when faced with complex scenarios. This is true for any personnel in our field. The FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence course helps practitioners develop these skills and expands them into complex topics such as adversary intrusion and campaign analysis, tradecraft and indicator creation, and effective information sharing from tactical to strategic level players. I developed this course to help move art to science and to push our community forward."
