Immerse yourself in an intensive, skill-building 2-day session led by respected authorities from the SANS Institute.

SANS: Critical Security Controls: Planning, Implementing and Auditing

Dates: Sunday, February 12 & Monday, February 13
Times: 9 AM  5 PM
Cost: $2,360

Speaker: James Tarala

Abstract: This course helps you master specific, proven techniques and tools needed to implement and audit the Critical Security Controls as documented by the Center for Internet Security (CIS). These Critical Security Controls are rapidly becoming accepted as the highest priority list of what must be done and proven before anything else at nearly all serious and sensitive organizations. These controls were selected and defined by the US military and other government and private organizations (including NSA, DHS, GAO, and many others) who are the most respected experts on how attacks actually work and what can be done to stop them. They defined these controls as their consensus for the best way to block the known attacks and the best way to help find and mitigate damage from the attacks that get through. For security professionals, the course enables you to see how to put the controls in place in your existing network though effective and widespread use of cost-effective automation. For auditors, CIOs, and risk officers, the course is the best way to understand how you will measure whether the controls are effectively implemented.

SANS: Securing the Human: How to Build, Maintain and Measure a High-Impact Awareness Program

Dates: Sunday, February 12 & Monday, February 13
Times: 9 AM  5 PM
Cost: $2,360

Speaker: Lance Spitzner

Abstract: Organizations have invested a tremendous amount of money and resources into securing technology, but little if anything into securing their employees and staff. As a result, people, not technology, have become their weakest link in cybersecurity. The most effective way to secure the human element is to establish a high-impact security awareness program that goes beyond just compliance and changes behaviors. This intense two-day course will teach you the key concepts and skills needed to build, maintain and measure just such a program. All course content is based on lessons learned from hundreds of security awareness programs from around the world. You will learn not only from your instructor, but from extensive interaction with your peers, as well. Please bring example materials from your security awareness program that you can show and share with other students during the course.

SANS: Active Defense, Offensive Countermeasures and Cyber Deception

Dates: Sunday, February 12 & Monday, February 13
Times: 9 AM  5 PM
Cost: $2,420

Speaker: John Strand

Abstract: The current threat landscape is shifting. Traditional defenses are failing us. We need to develop new strategies to defend ourselves. Even more importantly, we need to better understand who is attacking us and why. You may be able to immediately implement some of the measures we discuss in this course, while others may take a while. Either way, consider what we discuss as a collection of tools at your disposal when you need them to annoy attackers, determine who is attacking you, and, finally, attack the attackers. Active Defense, Offensive Countermeasures and Cyber Deception is based on the Active Defense Harbinger Distribution live Linux environment funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This virtual machine is built from the ground up for defenders to quickly implement Active Defenses in their environments. The course is very heavy with hands-on activities - we won't just talk about Active Defenses, we will work through labs that will enable you to quickly and easily implement what you learn in your own working environment.

Note: Additional fee of $60 for the kit for this tutorial is included in the price.

SANS: Lethal Threat Hunting and Incident Response Techniques

Dates: Sunday, February 12 & Monday, February 13
Times: 9 AM  5 PM
Cost: $2,480

Speaker: Jake Williams

Abstract: Prevention systems alone are insufficient to counter focused human adversaries who know how to get around most security and monitoring tools. The key is to look constantly for attacks that get past security systems and to catch intrusions in progress rather than after attackers have completed their objectives and done worse damage to the organization. For the incident responder, this process is referred to as “threat hunting.” Threat Hunting is using known adversary behaviors to examine proactively the network and endpoints identifying new data breaches. Incident response and threat hunting teams are the keys to identifying and observing malware indicators, patterns of activity, to help generate accurate threat intelligence that can be used to help detect current and future intrusions.

Note: Additional fee of $120 for the SIFT kit for this tutorial is included in the price.
