SANS Heads to Las Vegas for One of its Largest Cyber Security Training Events of the Year

More than 45 Hands-On Immersion Style Courses Offered

  • Bethesda, MD
  • August 1, 2019

SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, today announced its return to Las Vegas, NV for
SANS Network Security 2019 (#SANSNetworkSecurity) taking place September 9-16. Top cyber security practitioners from around the world will gather to share their first-hand knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in cyber security. Included on the agenda is a talk by SANS legal expert and course author, Attorney Benjamin Wright (@benjaminwright), ‘The Data Privacy Imperative’.

Wright explains, "Around the world legal and political expectations for data privacy are rising rapidly. These higher expectations are evidenced by the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulation (and the big fines imposed under it for recent data breaches), California's groundbreaking new Consumer Privacy Act and the punishment Equifax suffered for its massive data security breach. To meet these expectations, enterprises that manage personal information must rethink everything, from their business models, to their legal practices and even their corporate cultures. Join me in Las Vegas to consider practical steps that would have been considered unorthodox just two years ago. These steps tie into larger lessons taught in my 5-day course
LEG523: Law of Data Security and Investigations."

Wright’s LEG523: Law of Data Security and Investigations course covers the rapid development of law at the intersection of IT and security. The course is ever-evolving, offering new tips and insights to change the way security professionals think about law and technology.

SANS Network Security 2019 features courses covering a wide-spectrum of cyber security issues. Course topics include cyber defense, critical security controls, SIEM, OSINT, ethical hacking, cloud security, penetration testing, digital forensics, incident response, security management, secure development, IT audit, and ICS security. Bonus evening talks and a special Women’s CONNECT event will round out the agenda. Women’s CONNECT is a great opportunity to learn more about SANS programs supporting women and to meet and network with other female attendees.
