SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced SANS Vancouver 2018 taking place June 25-30 in British Columbia. The event offers a variety of courses for security professionals at every level covering such topics as cyber defense, ethical hacking, digital forensics, security management and industrial control system (ICS) security.

According to Canadian Bryan Simon (@BryanOnSecurity), an internationally recognized cyber security expert and SANS Certified Instructor, "My first experience with SANS was when I attended the SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style course in 2006... in Vancouver. It sent my career into orbit. A decade later it is my distinct honor and pleasure to return to Vancouver for SEC401, this time as the lead instructor of the course. If you are ready to take the next step into information security, join me to celebrate the return!"

The SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style course provides a detailed overview of security fundamentals, including how and why we apply them, in a boot camp-style format that is reinforced with hands-on labs. For additional information on the SEC401 course, or to register, please visit:
