Hackers work 24 hours a day – when will you schedule your security training?

Promo We might all be living under various degrees of lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sharpen up your security skills with some of the best instructors around – and all at early bird prices, if you’re quick.

That’s because the SANS Institute has announced new security training events for early 2021, which will get you up to speed on the latest security threats, thinking and techniques across a range of platforms and industries, and across a range of time zones.

And best of all, you can enjoy early bird discounts across all three events, as well as the chance to gain valuable industry certifications off the back of your hard work.

January 18 to 23 sees SANS hit Tokyo with a quartet of courses spanning Cloud Security and DevOps Automation, Windows Forensic Analysis, Advanced Network Forensics, and ISC/SCADA Essentials, all delivered live online.

February sees the launch of South by Southeast Asia, a virtual event running from Feb 1 to Feb 6, on Indian standard time. There are six courses, ranging from Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits and Incident Hunting, to Defeating Advanced Adversaries, all delivered online.

And March sees no fewer than 16 courses delivered from Singapore at Secure Asia Pacific, from March 8 to 20. Sessions available range from Cloud Security Essentials and the Security Essential Bootcamp to Battlefield Forensics and Data Acquisition and Open Source Intelligence Data Gathering and Analysis. Attendees can join from anywhere, but local students will have the opportunity attend in-person live-stream training.

Most of the courses are eligible for GIAC certifications, and if you sign up for certification at the same time as you book your course, you’ll save even more.

While the topics and timings might be different, all these events share common SANS DNA.

So you can be sure the content is always cutting edge, with world class instructors leading interactive sessions which mix the latest theory and thinking with practical, hands on lab exercises.

You’ll also get the chance to network with fellow students via chat channels, as well as access to the course content for four months after the live sessions end. And all three of these events include Virtual NetWars tournaments, so you can put your new skills to work against your new friends.

So, whether your interest is in the security bootcamp sessions, you want to get deep on incident response, expand your wireless penetration testing skills, or automate information security using Python, book now. It won’t just secure your spot – it’ll secure those earlybird discounts.
