SANS have announced they will provide essential cyber security training at SANS CyberCon Fall 2013, an online information security training event, Sept 9th – 14th, 2013. According to Lloyd's Risk Index List 2013, "cyber security now sits squarely towards the top of the agenda for boards around the world with cyber risk moving from 12th to 3rd place in the index. Business leaders have woken up to the importance of cyber security following a series of high profile incidents since 2011."

"SANS CyberCon is great for organizations that need their employees to receive world-class cyber training to protect their systems while not needing a travel budget," states Steve Peterson, Director of SANS Online Training.

"Virtual training allows me to sit in my own comfy chair, wearing my comfiest clothes, while being exposed to some of the best thinking in the industry. Plus, there's no exhausting or costly travel!" - Robin Norris, EMC

SANS CyberCon Fall 2013 will be your opportunity to attend a SANS training event without ever leaving home. CyberCon will feature specialized information security courses in IT audit, pen testing, computer forensics, and legal security.

Benjamin Wright, a legal security expert and author of LEG523: Law of Data Security and Investigations, states "These are five intense days covering the rapid development of law at the intersection of IT and security. Be prepared for insights and tips you've not heard before." Ben will be teaching LEG523 at CyberCon Fall 2013. Newly-added to the course as of summer 2013: Legal tips on confiscating and interrogating mobile devices.

"This course was an eye opener to the various legal issues in data security. Practices I will use when back in office," stated Albertus Wilson with Saudi Aramco after taking LEG523.
