Here are the classes running at SANS Secure Europe Amsterdam, and the instructors teaching them:
SEC401: SANS Security Essentials Bootcamp Style with Jim Herbeck
In this course you will learn the language and underlying theory of computer security. At the same time you will learn the essential, up-to-the-minute knowledge and skills required for effective performance if you are given the responsibility for securing systems and/or organizations.
SEC540: VoIP Security with Paul Henry
By helping you understand how VoIP protocols work and giving you hands-on experience with attack mechanisms that impact your VoIP environment, this challenging course helps you design, build, and assess a secure VoIP architecture.
SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking with Stephen Sims
This class covers the ingredients for successful network penetration testing to help attendees improve their enterprise’s security stance. It addresses detailed pre-test planning, including setting up an effective penetration testing infrastructure and establishing ground rules with the target organization to avoid surprises and misunderstanding. Then, it discusses a time-tested methodology for penetration and ethical hacking across the network, evaluating the security of network services and the operating systems behind them.
FOR508: Advanced Computer Forensic Analysis and Incident Response with Jess Garcia
This course will give you a firm understanding of advanced incident response and computer forensics tools and techniques to investigate data breach intrusions, tech-savvy rogue employees, advanced persistent threats, and complex digital forensic cases.
AUD507: Auditing Networks, Perimeters and Systems with James Tarala
This course is organized specifically to provide a risk driven method for tackling the enormous task of designing an enterprise security validation program. After covering a variety of high-level audit issues and general audit best practice, the students will have the opportunity to dive deep into the technical how-to for determining the key controls that can be used to provide a level of assurance to an organization. Tips on how to repeatedly verify these controls and techniques for automatic compliance validation will be given from real-world examples.
SEC617: Wireless Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing and Defenses with Steve Armstrong
This course takes an in-depth look at the security challenges of many different wireless technologies, exposing you to wireless security threats through the eyes of an attacker. Using readily available and custom-developed tools, you’ll navigate your way through the techniques attackers use to exploit WiFi networks, including attacks against WEP, WPA/WPA2, PEAP, TTLS, and other systems, including developing attack techniques leveraging Windows 7 and Mac OS X.
SEC660: Advanced Penetration Testing, Exploits and Ethical Hacking with Stephen Sims
Students with the prerequisite knowledge to take this course will walk through dozens of real world attacks used by the most seasoned penetration testers. The methodology of a given attack is discussed, followed by exercises in a real world lab environment to solidify advanced concepts and allow for the immediate application of techniques in the workplace.
FOR558: Network Forensics with Jess Garcia
This course will teach you to how to follow the attacker’s footprints and analyze evidence from the network environment. Every student will receive a VMware SNIFT Virtualized Workstation, which is a fully-loaded, portable forensics virtual workstation, designed by network forensics experts.
