Singapore, SG - 10 September 2012 - Based on the tremendous support and ongoing involvement SANS has received from the Singapore information security community, SANS today announced its return to Singapore with SANS October Singapore 2012 taking place 8-20 October. In addition to its core programs, SANS has added a new Virtualization and Private Cloud Security course and Advanced Forensics and Incident Response course to the agenda.

The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) recently announced a new corporate headquarters in Singapore. "As Singapore continues to elevate its role as a global center for cloud computing security, local access to world-class training programs that offer hands-on experience will become increasingly more important," said Paul Henry, SANS Senior Instructor, and Forensic Analyst at Lumension. "From offense to defense to the identification of vulnerabilities, SANS' new Virtualization and Private Cloud Security course provides valuable insight for ensuring the security of cloud computing environments."

SANS October Singapore 2012 offers the opportunity for attendees to upgrade their IT security skills, work toward their GIAC security certification, and network with other top information security professionals. The event features presentations, hands-on training and bonus evening sessions.
