SANS Community Event
Portland City Grill

Join SANS Instructors Brian Ventura and Derek Hill for an evening of conversation regarding Secure configurations - Built-in Security Enhancements and the benefit of the CISSP certification from a hiring manager perspective.

TOPICS 1. In the information security news, we regularly hear about the latest vulnerabilities with recommendations to scramble and patch immediately. This is an important aspect of our industry, however there are other security considerations. Are there configurations we can set now in our systems and software that will protect us? Let's explore secure configurations and see what we find.

  1. The Hiring Manager is looking at your resume – why does CISSP matter? While the CISSP is not the only thing we look at, it is a great starting point. What knowledge does the CISSP provide and how does one prepare for the exam?
