After working with my contact at SANS for the last few weeks it’s finally official! From Thursday, April 5, 2007 to Thursday, June 7, 2007 I will be leading the Security 504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits and Incident Handling track here in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
I see this as a really big deal for the following reasons:
The population of Fredericton is only around 48000 which is is the size of most big city suburbs. Trying to get this type of training is not easy in Fredericton, let alone the rest of Atlantic Canada.
Most organizations in New Brunswick are unable to send their employees for formal training due to the cost of hotels, flights, meals, etc. Having a local training option will drastically reduce this roadblock to quality training.
I get to give back to the security community, gain valuable teaching experience, and meet local people in the security field (this is a personal bonus for me!)
If you live in Fredericton, or the surrounding areas, and want to know more about this training sessions then please take a look at the following links:
