SANS New York City Training Event to Provide Security Professionals with Detailed Insight into the Tools and Techniques Needed to Fend Off Cyber Attacks

Hands-on Immersion Courses Include Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response and Threat Hunting

  • Bethesda, MD
  • January 4, 2018

SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced SANS New York City Winter 2018 taking place February 26 - March 3. The event will feature hands-on immersion-style training courses to help security professionals out-think and out-maneuver cyber adversaries. Included among the course offerings is the FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting course. Course instructor and Senior Threat Researcher at Cylance, Anuj Soni, will share how to identify, contain and ultimately remediate a breach. Soni will also give an evening talk entitled Malware Analysis: House Rules.

According to Anuj Soni (@asoni), "Malware analysis can be fun, but it can also be a frustrating experience if you don't lay out some ground rules. For example, before you double-click anything, you need to understand your goals, your process, and your target operating system - without considering these basic aspects, you'll likely spend way too much reversing a sample, learn little, and produce nothing. This talk will discuss the rules I live by to ensure my malware analysis efforts are productive and useful to all those involved."
