SANS London Summer takes place in London’s Regents Park Marriott Hotel from Monday 14th till 21st of July offering security professionals the opportunity to attend four of SANS’ most popular six-day courses and the excellent two-day “Securing The Human” course.
Sessions with availability include DEV522: Defending Web Applications Security Essentials. SANS Instructor Jason Lam leads this vital course that includes detailed analysis of the OWASP Top 10 most dangerous web vulnerabilities. DEV522 helps students better understand these threats and properly defend web assets. SANS London Summer 2014 will be the only opportunity to take the course this year in Europe.
The DEV522 course has been updated extensively to cover some of the major trends in software development and Lam points to the HTML 5 sections as a great example of why organisations have to continually help staff to maintain a relevant skill set. “HTML5 is an incredibly powerful tool set that in many way makes for an easier and more efficient development framework,” says course tutor Jason Lam, “But it also has a different set of requirements in terms of secure development which need to be understood and considered to create secure applications. Like all systems, there are also unique weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities when working within HTML 5 and the course will show how developers can mitigate these risks.”
Another popular course returning to London is SEC566: Implementing and Auditing the Critical Security Controls – In-Depth. The course helps security professionals to understand how to put the controls in place within existing networks through the effective and widespread use of cost-effective automation. For auditors, CIOs, and risk officers the course is also the best way to understand how to measure whether the Top 20 controls are effectively implemented.

- SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling with Steve Armstrong
- FOR508: Advanced Computer Forensic Analysis and Incident Response with Jess Garcia
