I’m honored to announce that I will again be working with the SANS Institute to mentor SANS Security 504 Hacker Techniques, Exploits, & Incident Handling in Denver starting in January 2014.  Details and registration information are available directly from the SANS website.

I vividly remember my own experience as a student in this class.  Although I had been performing security incident response for quite some time prior, I really had no idea the body of knowledge and best practices that were available but which I had not been taking advantage of.  I recall all the positive changes I was able to make to my organization’s incident handling capability immediately upon returning to work. SANS 504 also taught me just how “cool” it could be working on the defensive side of information security.  This was a truly eye-opening point in my career.

In addition to incident handling, SANS Sec 504 methodically presents the most commonly used and most impactful tools and techniques that hackers unleash on our networks.  Knowledge of these exploits helps form a foundation of knowledge that any security professional needs in order to be successful.  Armed with the knowledge and hands-on experience from SANS 504, students are poised to continue their learning in any number of security specialties like incident response, penetration testing, forensics, security research, or management.

SANS Security 504 prepares students for the GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) professional certification which, in addition to being valuable and respected in its own right, fulfills some DoDD 8570 requirements and is a pre-requisite for the GIAC Security Expert (GSE) certification.

I’m also really excited and thankful that my employer, Global Technology Resources (GTRI), has again agreed to support the security community and me by offering their brand new classroom facility in Denver for this mentor session.  Students will enjoy ample desk space, power, free wifi, large screen/projector, modern decor, and a very convenient location just south of downtown Denver, Colorado.

Please plan to join us.  It’s going to be a great time!
