With so many skills to learn, tools to understand, and processes to follow, it can easily seem overwhelming. What if there were a way to get a jump on the process and learn how all your SOC tools and data work in concert to help you triage and detection intrusions? If you're looking to get a jump on cyber defense, the new SANS SEC450 is the class for you. With in-depth coverage of important protocols, tools, and the analysis techniques, this class will prep you for battle. Join me for the official debut of SEC450: Blue Team Fundamentals - Security Operations and Analysis at SANS Dallas Fall 2019 and be one of the first to experience this new course, straight from an author who has been in the trenches and fought that same fight."
