SANS to Host Interactive Summer Training in Saudi Arabia

Global leader in cybersecurity training and certifications, SANS Institute has announced its Summer Dunes 2022 training program.

The in-depth and comprehensive training will focus on digital forensic methodologies and will teach participants how to mitigate even the most complex cyber-attacks. Held in person at the Crowne Plaza Riyadh RDC Hotel & Convention Centre, from June 18 to June 23, the course will be taught by industry-level experts.

Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute, said: “You can’t protect the unknown. Cybercrime on computer systems and within business networks must be anticipated by all enterprises. Analysts that can examine fraud, insider threats, industrial espionage, employee misuse, and computer intrusions have never been in more demand. Corporations, governments, and law enforcement agencies are increasingly relying on experienced forensics specialists to conduct investigations, recover essential information from computers, and, most importantly, get to the source of the crime.

“SANS is educating the next batch of the world’s greatest digital forensic professionals, incident responders, and media exploitation experts capable of piecing together what happened on computer systems second by second to assist in the resolution of these cases.”

The courses offered at SANS Summer Dunes are FOR500: Windows Forensic Analysis taught by Lee Whitfield and FOR498: Battlefield Forensics & Data Acquisition taught by Kevin Ripa. Both are active cybersecurity practitioners and certified instructors at SANS Institute.

Understanding forensic capabilities is a core component of information security. Through a series of hands-on laboratory exercises, FOR500: Windows Forensic Analysis focuses on building in-depth digital forensics knowledge of Microsoft Windows operating systems. FOR498, a digital forensic acquisition training course, provides the necessary skills to identify the many data storage mediums in use today, and how to collect and preserve this data in a forensically sound manner despite how and where it may be stored. It covers digital acquisition from computers, portable devices, networks, and the cloud.

Those who register for SANS Secure Middle East 2022 will also be eligible to participate in an exclusive NetWars Tournament, a set of interactive learning scenarios that allow participants to practice in-depth cybersecurity techniques in isolated and monitored environments.
