SANS Heads to Seattle Washington for Cyber Security Training Event

BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced SANS Seattle Spring 2018 taking place April 23 - 28 in the state of Washington. The event features hands-on immersion style training courses covering cyber defense, ethical hacking, digital forensics, and security management. The keynote address, Convergence Forensics: Leveraging Multiple Skills for Comprehensive Investigations, will be delivered by cyber security expert and SANS Certified Instructor, Philip Hagen.

According to Philip Hagen (@PhilHagen), "The practices of digital forensics and incident response are not monolithic endeavors with a narrowly-defined skill set.  To the contrary, a practitioner that strives to build their abilities in a variety of forensic disciplines is typically a more valuable team member. However, this doesn't mean to become a master of all trades as no such person exists.  The ideal approach is to build deep expertise in one area while building a working knowledge of related subject areas that support and inform the expertise.  Join me in Seattle where I will discuss a practical approach for forensicators to build knowledge that will best meet the demands of today's forensic and incident response tasks."

In addition to delivering the keynote address, Hagen will also teach his co-authored couse, FOR572: Advanced Network Forensics and Analysis. This course was built from the ground up to cover the most critical skills needed to mount efficient and effective post-incident response investigations.
