SANS Institute Introduces Vendor Neutral SIEM Training Course

SANS Institute has announced a new, vendor-neutral SIEM-training course, to be taught security architect and researcher Justin Henderson at SANS Network Security 2017  in Las Vegas September 10 – 17.

Rather than focusing on vendor-specific tools, the new course, SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics, takes a unique look at people and processes and offers tangible insight to be successful.

Established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education organization, The SANS Institute is the largest source of information security training and certification in the world. Its programs now reach more than 165,000 security professionals around the world.

According to Henderson, “Today, security operations do not suffer from a ‘Big Data’ problem but rather a ‘Data Analysis’ problem. Let’s face it, there are multiple ways to store and process large amounts of data without any real emphasis on gaining insight into the information collected. The real problem is identifying what to collect and how to use it. This new class is positioned to fill this gap through training and lots of hands on experience.”

SANS Network Security 2017 is offering over 45 information security courses taught by SANS’ instructors. Courses are available for all skillsets, from new to cyber security to highly seasoned security professionals. In addition to SANS classroom training and development, attendees can test their security defense skills at the Core NetWars Experience, DFIR NetWars Tournament, and the all-new NetWars Defense Competition. Bonus evening talks by SANS instructors will round out the agenda including Justin Henderson’s evening session on ‘Stuck in the Box, a SIEM’S Tale’.
