|SANS Securing Windows Training (Track 5)
Overall Rating: 5
Experience Date:Sep 28, 2004
Straightforward practical security advice, great teacher, condensed material
From September 28th to October 4th 2004 I attended the SANS course on securing windows. It was by far the best training I’ve ever been to. It was perfect for the level I was at at the time. Now that I’ve been to it, it wouldn’t be perfect anymore. The training was led by Jason Fossen, who has (and maintains) all the real-world experience he needs to keep him from being just another trainer with impractical advice. I created a to-do list during this training that is 111 items long. I might never finish. Since I have a personal interest in security, even the things we won’t be using at Trone were very engrossing. Jason’s teaching style is humorous and animated, something you have to have for a 6 day long course. I strongly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in networking security and has the funding. The topics covered (by day) are:
I hesitate to recommend it so strongly to everyone only because I know not everyone is in the spot I’m in. The guys in the class who were not programmers had a really hard time the last day (because Jason gave a 3 hour crash course in VB and object oriented programming). Almost everyone I talked to was giving the course 10 out of 10 ratings.
