SANS Institute Provides Summer Cyber Security Training to Students

SANS Institute

Introduces Various In-Depth Courses Including Hands-on Skills and Tools

The leading organization in information security training and certifications, the SANS Institute announced six days summer cyber security-training program (SANS Boston Summer 2019) from July 29 to August 3, 2019. Introduced courses will cover cyber defense, intrusion detection, ethical hacking, PowerShell, SIEM, security management, and secure development.

The principal security consultant at Enclave Consulting LLC and SANS fellow, Jason Fossen will discuss a bonus evening talk over “Windows Exploratory Surgery with Process Hacker.”

Fossen explained, “You could read a 1000-page book on Windows internals design. You could spend a week learning how to use a kernel debugger. You could even dig through the source code of Windows somehow. But if you just want to immediately start poking around under the covers of Windows with a fun graphical tool, that’s Process Hacker. And it’s free! Join me in Boston where I will share all you need to know about this great tool.”
