SANS Announces its Return to Miami for January 2020 Cyber Security Training Event

Top Cyber Security Practitioners to Share Tips and Techniques to Fend off Attackers

  • Bethesda, MD
  • October 29, 2019

SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, today announced SANS Miami 2020 (#SANSMiami), taking place January 13-18 in Florida. Real-world practitioners will share first-hand experience of what works in cyber security. Included among the evening talks is a keynote by SANS Faculty Fellow and course author, Eric Conrad (@eric_conrad), entitled “Threat Hunting via Sysmon.”

Conrad explains, “associate justice on the Supreme Court, Louis Brandeis once said, ‘sunlight is the best disinfectant.’ Malware likes to fester in the darkness, relying on a lack of visibility to spread. Sysmon provides critical visibility into a Windows network, providing the sunlight required to detect malicious events. Join me in Miami where I will share how to break out of the dark with Sysmon logs.”

In addition to his talk, Conrad will teach his co-authored course SANS MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP® Certification. This course is an accelerated review specifically designed to prepare students to pass the CISSP® exam. MGT414 focuses solely on the eight domains of knowledge as determined by (ISC)2 that form a critical part of the CISSP® exam.

SANS Miami 2020 features courses for security professionals at every level. Course topics include cyber defense, ethical hacking, digital forensics and security management. Attendees also have the opportunity to test their skills by participating in the Cyber Defense NetWars Tournament.
