SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Southern California - Anaheim 2018 taking place February 12-17. SANS hands-on immersion-style training courses offer the latest tips and techniques to out-think and out-maneuver cyber adversaries. Bonus evening discussions like the Prioritizing Your Security Program talk by SANS Senior Instructor Keith Palmgren, offer actionable information necessary to protect environments.

According to Palmgren (@kpalmgren), "Building a cyber security program is easy. Building a cyber security program that is effective is seriously hard. Whether new to cyber security or an old hand, it is easy to feel lost in the storm. Join me at SANS Southern California - Anaheim 2018 for my evening discussion where I will offer insight into building an effective strategy. Managers and technicians alike will gain valuable insight in this non-technical talk."
