Overview

Join SANS Instructors, Ed Skoudis and Josh Wright, for a spirited discussion and overview about the penetration testing courses available from the SANS Institute. How do you determine if you should take a network, wireless, mobiles, or web app pen testing course, or if you are ready for our most advanced exploit development course, SEC760? Ed will be able to help you figure out what is right for you, your career, and your organization. Additionally, during this webcast, Josh will dive into the content and labs of his Mobile Device Penetration Testing (SEC575) course.
