SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, today announced the agenda for SANS Tampa-Clearwater 2019 (#SANSTampa) taking place August 25-30 in Florida. Hands-on immersion training and evening talks will provide InfoSec professionals with tips and techniques to be successful. Ted Demopoulos (@teddemop), SANS Principal Instructor and book author will share what he’s learned during his 20 plus years as a consultant during his talk, “So, You Want to Be an InfoSec Consultant?”.

Demopoulos explains, “There has never been a better time to become an InfoSec consultant, with resulting enormous amounts of freedom, the ability to choose meaningful work, and yes, money. However, there are a number of misconceptions about consulting one should understand before starting. Join me at SANS Tampa-Clearwater to learn what exactly is involved and how to succeed as an InfoSec consultant.”

In addition to his talk, Demopoulos will teach SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style. This course teaches the most effective steps to prevent attacks and detect adversaries with actionable techniques that can be directly applied upon returning to work. Students will gain the knowledge necessary to win the battle against a wide range of cyber adversaries.
