SANS Announces the Agenda for Arlington, Virginia Cyber Security Training Event

Two New Courses Offered at SANS Crystal City

  • Bethesda, MD
  • April 10, 2018

SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Crystal City 2018 taking place June 18-23 in Arlington, VA. The event features hands-on immersion style training courses. Included in the course line-up are two new courses - SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics and SEC599: Defeating Advanced Adversaries - Implementing Kill Chain Defenses.

According to SANS Certified Instructor and SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics course author, Justin Henderson (@SecurityMapper), "Adversaries only need to find one vulnerability to get into your network. However, defenders only need one detect to turn the tables, find them, and kick them out. To do this the right data needs collected, enriched, and operationalized. The SEC555: SIEM and Tactical Analytics class is positioned to teach you this with strategic data collection and high-fidelity, low false positive detection techniques. By the end of class, you will learn how to layer multiple detection techniques to turn adversary strengths into adversary weaknesses. All of this is reinforced with lots of labs and a 100% hands-on boot camp experience."
