BETHESDA, Md., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Minneapolis 2018 taking place June 25 – 30 in Minnesota. The event features a variety of cyber defense, penetration testing and digital forensics courses. A special keynote address will be delivered by information security expert and SANS Principal Instructor Kevin Fiscus entitled OODA Security: Taking Back the Advantage.
According to Kevin Fiscus (@kevinbfiscus), “We have been trying to protect our networks using the same techniques for decades and have been consistently failing. Adding “next-gen” to the product name has done wonders for technology sales but little in the way of significantly increasing security. Currently, defenders have to be right 100 percent of the time while attackers have to be right once, giving attackers a significant advantage. It’s time to change the game. Join me in Minneapolis where I will discuss what an OODA loop is, how we can win the OODA loop battle and how we can take back the advantage.”
In addition to his keynote discussion, Fiscus will also teach the SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling course. This course was designed to turn the tables on computer attackers by helping securing professionals better understand attackers’ tactics and strategies.
