SANS Phoenix – Upcoming Interview

As many of you already know, I am taking the SANS Security Leadership Essentials course at the upcoming SANS Conference in Phoenix, Mar 23-30th. It is being taught by none other than Stephen Northcutt, President of the SANS Institute.  

I caught up with Stephen earlier this week on LinkedIn and told him that I will be blogging and Tweeting about the event in near real time.  I also asked if I could interview him for, to which he agreed.   

Please leave me a comment or send me an email, Tweet, etc. if you have something specific that you would like me to address in the interview.

SANS Phoenix – Update

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post announcing that I will be taking the Security Leadership Essentials course at SANS Phoenix, 2009.   The conference is being held March 23-30, 2009.

I will be blogging about the event, so check back around that time to hear my thoughts on the course!   As I said in my previous post, I am participating in the SANS Work-Study program, which I think is a tremendous value.  

I am excited about two updates to my conference registration.  First, I am also taking the SANS 2 day course on the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Standard.  Second, I am getting access to the SANS On-Demand training for both of these courses.  On-Demand is another cool option for training in this economy – solid computer based training with no travel costs!  Both of these are included with my registration under the work study program!  

Have you taken a SANS course?  What did you think?  What do you think of SANS?   A couple of years ago, there was a session at ShmooCon entitled Anti-SANS (or something of the sort).  It was a very spirited debate to say the least.  I would love to hear what you think of SANS – good, bad, or indifferent!
