End of Year Training Offers Security Leaders the Opportunity to Hone Their Management Skills in Preparation for the New Year

  • Bethesda, MD
  • September 23, 2019

SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, today announced SANS Nashville 2019 (#SANSNashville) taking place in Tennessee December 2-7. The event features courses for security professionals at every level and includes several management-level courses. Jeff Frisk, SANS Certified Instructor, will teach MGT512: Security Leadership Essentials for Managers.

Frisk explains, “Having worked with hundreds of security leaders over the years I continually find that all leaders, new and even experienced, need a stronger foundation of core information security concepts and capabilities. This course provides the fundamental understanding that all managers need to successfully build a strong technical security team, interact with technical team members, provide technical guidance, and move the team forward. Join me as I share how to distinguish yourself from other managers and leaders by making sure you have the right foundation of cybersecurity leadership essentials.”

SANS Nashville 2019 offers courses covering cyber defense, cloud security, DevOps, security management, and ICS security. Those new to cyber security will benefit from SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style. Development, operations, and security professionals will benefit from the SEC540: Cloud Security and DevOps Automation course.
