SANS EMEA Webcast series

In the build-up to the SANS London 2009 event (28 November – 6 December), SANS EMEA are running a series of webcasts to introduce some of the advanced classes they’ll be offering. These webcasts will including some of the top SANS trainers that will be attending the event.

The webcast series is starting out today with Stephen Sims, who will give a sneak peek of the SEC:709 “developing exploits for penetration testers and security researchers” class. This is SANS first and only 700 level course and it certainly lives up to the hype. I was lucky enough to attend the 2-day version of this class at last years SANS London event and learnt more than I thought possible in the short timescale. Drinking from the firehose at it’s very best. This year, Stephen has extended the course to 5 full-days and inserted a lot of new content.I wish I could attend the extended version myself this year, but some things are in the works. Needless to say, I’ll be at the event one way or another.

Instructor Bio:

He has spent the past eight  years in San Francisco working for several large financial institutions  on network and systems security, penetration testing, exploitation  development, risk assessment and management.
