Course Authors Will Share Tips and Techniques to Succeed in Cyber Security
SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training and certifications, announced its return to Washington D.C. for SANSFIRE 2019 (#SANSFIRE) taking place June 15-22. The event features more than 40 hands-on immersion style courses taught by top cyber security practitioners from around the globe. Industry veteran Lenny Zeltser (@lennyzeltser) will explain how to avoid the top 10 mistakes in cyber security writing in an evening session on improving written communication skills.
Zeltser explained, “During my tenure in the security industry, I’ve read and created my share of poorly written reports, emails, and other content that didn’t quite hit the mark. We can all improve the quality of our writing by watching out for the most common mistakes. In this talk I’ll share how to avoid these issues to strengthen cybersecurity writing skills to better connect with the readers. The session will not only help attendees write better, but also offer a preview of the techniques I cover in the new SANS course SEC402: The Secrets to Successful Cybersecurity Writing: Hack the Reader.”
In addition to his evening talk, Zeltser will teach his co-authored course FOR610: Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques. This popular course explores malware analysis tools and techniques in depth. FOR610 training helps forensic investigators, incident responders, security engineers, and IT administrators acquire the practical skills to examine malicious programs that target and infect Windows systems.
