BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute announces a special opportunity for organizations to send two students to SANS' top-rated information security training for the price of one. This offer runs through September 10, 2014 and will allow organizations to send employees to a live, online training session of MGT414: SANS® +S(TM) Training Program for the CISSP® Certification Exam or SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style.
Information security professionals are responsible for research and analysis of security threats that may affect an organization's assets, products, or technical specifications. It is critical to have cybersecurity pros that are trained to have a great understanding of security threats and can identify strategies to defend against attacks.
SANS' MGT414 prepares students for the CISSP® exam with the most current courseware available. Students will be able to understand the 10 domains of knowledge that are covered on the CISSP® exam. As well as apply the skills learned across the 10 domains to solve security problems when they return back to work.
"This course breaks the huge CISSP study books down into manageable chunks and helped me focus and identify weaknesses. The instructor's knowledge and teaching skills are excellent," stated Jeff Jones with Constellation Energy Group.
The SANS SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style course will provide students the ability to:
-- Create an effective policy that can be enforced within an organization and prepare a checklist to validate security, creating metrics to tie into training and awareness -- Build a network visibility map that can be used for hardening of a network - validating the attack surface and covering ways to reduce the attack surface through hardening and patching
"SEC401 is an eye opener to the broader aspects of network/security admin roles. You see things from a different paradigm," said Rod Campbell with CITEC.
