Promo With cyber-attacks on the rise and constantly taking new forms, organisations rely more than ever on skilled IT security staff who can detect and deal with vulnerabilities in their systems.
If you are a cybersecurity professional, you can deepen your knowledge and catch up with the latest security developments at the SANS Institute training event taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, from 13-18 May.
Five intensive courses will sharpen the skills you need to defend your organisation against data breaches and prevent them happening in the future. SANS courses are written and taught by the best in the industry, their real world experiences are brought into the classroom and shared with the students.
They also offer the chance to prepare for GIAC Certifications, and SANS pledges that you will be ready to apply your skills on returning to work.
The courses on offer are:
