The SANS Institute is offering two of its popular security training courses in Abu Dhabi this March.
SANS Certified Instructor Pieter Danhieux will be teaching the Security 560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course to help security professionals build a penetration testing and ethical hacking infrastructure that include the appropriate hardware, software, network infrastructure, and test tools arsenal, with specific low-cost recommendations for maximising effectiveness on a limited budget.
Attendees will learn how to perform detailed reconnaissance, learning about a target’s infrastructure by mining blogs, search engines, and social networking sites. In the exploitation phase, Danhieux will teach the use of exploitation frameworks, standalone exploits, and other valuable tactics, all with hands-on exercises in the lab environment.
Running in parallel at the Hilton Abu Dhabi Hotel from March 31st to April 5th, SANS Certified Instructor Jess Garcia will be teaching the Forensics 558: Network Forensics course.
