SANS Network Security Conference 2017 Las Vegas, NV September 10-17
"SANS provides intensive, immersion training designed to help you and your staff master the practical steps necessary for defending systems and networks against the most dangerous threats - the ones being actively exploited. The courses are full of important and immediately useful techniques that you can put to work as soon as you return to your offices. They were developed through a consensus process involving hundreds of administrators, security managers, and information security professionals, and address both security fundamentals and awareness, and the in-depth technical aspects of the most crucial areas of IT security."
"SANS training can be taken in a classroom setting from SANS-certified instructors, self-paced over the Internet, or in mentored settings in cities around the world. Each year, SANS programs educate more than 12,000 people in the US and internationally. To find the best teachers in each topic in the world, SANS runs a continuous competition for instructors. Last year more than 90 people tried out for the SANS faculty, but only five new people were selected."
"SANS also offers a Work Study Program through which, in return for acting as an important extension of SANS' conference staff, facilitators may attend classes at a greatly reduced rate. Facilitators are most definitely expected to pull their weight and the educational rewards for their doing so are substantial."
Many resources are free to all who ask. They include the very popular Internet Storm Center (the Internet's early warning system), the weekly news digest (NewsBites), the weekly vulnerability digest (@RISK), and more than 1,200 award-winning, original information security research papers.
