Training in Spanish for cyber security pros

Sponsored Post Cybercrime is a global phenomenon, but the effectiveness of measures put in place to fight it varies considerably from one region to another.

In a recent analysis covering Latin America the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) notes that serious attacks continue to ravage the area, including last year's ransomware attacks on Costa Rica which crippled the country's medical, government, and commercial systems. According to the CFR, if Latin America is to effectively ramp up cybersecurity countermeasures, the region needs to deal "with structural challenges and will also require a better understanding of the threat landscape".

SANS Institute aims to host an event specifically tailored for infosec professionals that are native Spanish-speaking, with the objective of providing a comprehensive set of skills and abilities to fight the cybersecurity threat landscape in the region. Delegates attending between Monday 6 November and Saturday 11 November 2023 will be taught in Spanish by native Spanish speaking instructors. This special training event will be taking place online and is time zone friendly to all the Americas, making it easier for infosec professionals that speak Spanish, and live in the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, and all countries from the continent to attend. Recent student feedback can be seen in this video.

The event features practical cyber security training taught by real-world practitioners, augmented by hands-on practical sessions conducted in specially created safe virtual labs. Interactive, immersion-style training will be available live online. Delegates have the opportunity to earn CPEs to demonstrate ongoing skill development, while several courses are aligned with GIAC certifications, validating student mastery for professional use in critical, specialized infosec domains, and job-specific roles.

The FOR508: Advanced Incident Response, Threat Hunting, and Digital Forensics is a six-day course (worth 36 CPEs) designed to teach delegates state-of-the-art threat hunting and incident response tactics designed to enable them to properly and effectively deal with compromised systems. The SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, and Incident Handling is another six-day course (also worth 36 CPEs) which helps infosec professionals develop their skills to maximize the effectiveness of their incident response investigationsBoth courses start on 6 November and delegates can register here.
