The ability to create tools that automate common tasks performed by Security professionals often differentiates the highly successful individuals from their peers. Learning to write software so you can create new tools that make you more productive and push the field forward can make the difference between mission success and mission failure. But learning to program for the first time or advancing your programming skills often takes a back seat to daily operations and many information security professionals fail to develop this skill. This talk will discuss the features of SANS new SEC573 course and how it overcomes these obstacles to learning.
