Gulf-based cyber security training conference, SANS Dubai, will be offering three intensive training courses led by SANS-certified instructors from Saturday 31 January to Thursday 5 February, 2015 at the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort.

SANS is offering up to $500 in discounts on tuition fees for attendees of any course who register by 17 December.

"Led by a team of world class instructors, including Dave Shackleford and Jess Garcia, the SANS Dubai six-day training event provides the only opportunity to take these highly popular courses in the Gulf Region," SANS Dubai said in a statement.

SEC504 ("Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits and Incident Handling") helps students understand attackers' tactics and strategies in detail, giving hands-on experience in finding vulnerabilities and discovering intrusions, and equipping practitioners with a comprehensive incident-handling plan.

SEC542 ("Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking") moves beyond push-button penetration testing to professional Web-application penetration testing that finds flaws before the adversaries discover and abuse them. The course seeks to enable students to assess a Web application's security posture and convincingly demonstrate the impact of inadequate security.

FOR610 ("Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques") is a popular course that explores malware analysis tools and techniques in depth. FOR610 training helps forensic investigators, incident responders, security engineers, and IT administrators acquire the practical skills to examine malicious programs that target and infect Windows systems.
