SANS offers cyber security training in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, March 1, 2016

SANS Institute, the world’s largest provider of cyber security training is holding a training event this week in Abu Dhabi, UAE featuring courses to teach best practices for protecting regional organizations’ critical assets.

Running from March 5 to 10 at the Hilton Abu Dhabi Hotel, the event will feature two SANS courses; SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style and ICS515: ICS Active Defence and Incident Response.

The six-day SEC401 course provides an intensive introduction to security’s core technologies, theories, and best practices. The course teaches the essential skills, methods, and tools needed to secure an organisation’s critical information assets and covers subjects such as networking concepts, internet security technologies, and security across Windows and Linux/Unix systems.

SEC401 is led by Ted Demopoulos who has over 25 years of IT security experience and has worked as an independent consultant for over 20 years. He is the recipient of a US Department of Defense Award of Excellence.

“SEC401 teaches cyber security’s most important theories. When students leave the classroom, they are able to speak security’s language, to understand why security is important and how it should be applied in their jobs. The course also provides the hands-on skills needed to protect an organisation and to make sure security problems don’t become headline news,” explained Demopoulos.

SEC401 is ideal for a broad spectrum of cyber security professionals including managers who need to develop a rounded understanding of information security, according to a statement.

The programme is also designed for IT engineers and supervisors who need to know how to build defensible networks and administrators responsible for building and maintaining systems as well as forensic specialists, the statement said.

“To be effective defenders, practitioners need a solid understanding of core principles such as networking. SEC401 ensures practitioners understand security’s fundamentals and more,” concluded Demopoulos. – TradeArabia News Service
