Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 28 September 2019: SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, is hosting its autumn training event in Riyadh this October, providing cyber security professionals in the Kingdom with the hands-on skills and latest tools and techniques to defend their organisations against security breaches and prevent future attacks. SANS Riyadh October will be held from the 5th to the 10th October, 2019 at the Burj Rafal Hotel, Riyadh.
Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute, said: “The recent cyber attacks in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have shown that organisations there remain vulnerable. SANS’ courses are designed to train cybersecurity professionals in the Kingdom to defend against all kinds of attack, from sophisticated nation-state driven attacks on the Kingdom’s critical and national infrastructure to more everyday attacks targeting data theft from the organisation. SANS Institute remains committed to increasing the levels of self-reliance among organisations in Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.”
Providing the customary SANS immersion style training, SANS Certified Instructors will share the depth of their knowledge and experience with attendees during the week across the following six key courses from the SANS catalogue:
SEC460: Enterprise Threat and Vulnerability Assessment with Matthew Toussain
SEC542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking with Bojan Zdrnja
SEC545: Cloud Security Architecture and Operations with Kenneth Hartman
SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking with Hidayath Khan
MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP® Certification with Ted Demopoulos
MGT514: Security Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership with Mark Williams
As with every SANS training event, all courses come with the assurance that students will be able to use the new skills they have learned as soon as they return to work.
SANS Riyadh will also prepare attendees for the appropriate GIAC Certification associated with their course, as well as providing an opportunity to network with like-minded security professionals facing similar challenges. Delegates can also attend evening bonus sessions led by SANS Instructors which provide further insight into the latest cyber security topics.
