SANS Houston Cyber Security Training Features Courses to Help Security Professionals Protect Our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure

Bethesda, MD, August 15, 2018 – SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Houston 2018 (#SANSHouston) taking place October 29 November 3 in Texas. The event features hands-on immersion style courses designed to help security professionals at every level arm themselves with the information needed to defeat cyber attackers. Included on the agenda is the new SEC460: Enterprise Threat and Vulnerability Assessment course.

According to SEC460 course co-author and instructor Matthew Toussain (@0sm0s1z), “Our nation’s critical infrastructure and financial sectors are under attack. And for those organizations who support networks with hundreds or even thousands of disparate nodes, defense can be a difficult challenge. SEC460 is designed to help organizations gain control of their environments and prevent cyber criminals from weaponizing the information environment.”
