Security 401: SANS Security Essentials Bootcamp Style (GIAC: GSEC)

- Taught by SANS Certified Instructor Mark Hofman

Security Essentials is designed to give anyone interested in network security the skills required to be an effective player in this space. This in-depth, comprehensive course provides essential, up-to-the-minute information, teaches skills required for securing systems and organizations, and equips you with the language and theory of computer security. Learn all of this and more from the best security instructors in the industry.
Security 542: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking (GIAC: GWAPT)

- Taught by SANS Certified Instructor, Pieter Danhieux

Assess Your Web Apps in Depth

Testing the security of Web applications is not as simple as just knowing what SQL injection and cross-site scripting mean. Successful testers understand that methodical, thorough testing is the best means of finding the vulnerabilities within the applications. This requires a deep understanding of how Web applications work and what attack vectors are available. This course provides that understanding by examining the various parts of a Web application penetration. When teaching the class, I especially enjoy the use of real-world exercises and the in-depth exploration of Web penetration testing. - Kevin Johnson, Course Author

Both of the above courses are associated with GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification).

Our event campus will be the Mercure Hotel Brisbane on North Quay Street. Please contact us at for further information.

We look forward to reconnecting with you at SANS Brisbane 2013!
