BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 8, 2018 -- SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced SANS Baltimore Spring 2018 taking place April 21 – 28 in Maryland. SANS Baltimore Spring 2018 features courses designed to help security professionals at every level to continually develop and sharpen their skills to stay ahead of adversaries. Included among the course line-up is the popular SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling course.
According to Alissa Torres, Incident Response Manager at Cargill and a SANS Certified Instructor (@sibertor), "The SEC504 class embodies the 'offense informs defense' ethos, shedding light on offensive tactics to ramp up the blue team professional with approachable hands-on exercises. For practitioners working in the offensive space, SEC504 reveals forensic artifacts left behind by today's attacks and lateral movement techniques and the successful defensive strategies that counter these tactics. Join me in Baltimore where I will tear into the tools that make threat actors' newest attacks doable, diving into not only how these tools work but also why an attacker chooses to implement them."
