Security Leadership Essentials

I am excited to announce that I will be attending the SANS Conference here in Phoenix March 23rd – 30th, 2009.

I have taken several SANS Courses before, including “Wireless Ethical Hacking, Pen Testing, and Defenses” and “Securing Windows”.  This go around I will be taking “SANS Security Leadership Essentials for Managers“.   The course is being taught by the President of the SANS Institute, Stephen Northcutt.

They are actually running 9 different courses in the areas of Management, Audit, Security, and Development.  No promises, but if you are interested in joining me at the Phoenix conference, send me an email at and I will try to hook you up with a 10% discount!

I am taking part in SANS work-study program.  It is where I am going to help them set up the conference, assist with on-site registration, help monitor the book store, and serve as an in-class volunteer.  In exchange, SANS is offering a steeply discounted tuition rate – a great program, especially in this economy!

I plan on blogging about the course, so definitely check back to hear my thoughts on the good, bad, and the ugly!   Have you taken a SANS course? What did you think?  If you haven’t, which of their courses sounds the most interesting to you?   Sound off by submitting a comment below!
