SANS courses have a reputation as being the best technical vendor-neutral security training available at the moment. I am pleased to announce that I have recently joined the SANS Mentor program, and I am currently preparing to host a SEC 504 Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling class. The class prepares the attendees for the GIAC certified incident handler (GCIH) certification.

We are currently looking at starting the class somewhere around Christmas. Mentor classes run for 10 consecutive weeks for two hours a week, usually in the early evening.

If you are interested in taking the class through the Mentor program, and if you are able (and willing) to travel to Long Island (NY) to take the class, please let me know.

Exact dates and times have not yet been determined, so I can work with you on that aspect. For now, we are looking at holding the classes in Garden City, or in Hauppage.
