SANS Special: The Essentials of Automating Information Security with Python


This event qualifies for 12 CPEs


Python is a simple, user-friendly language that is designed to make automating the tasks that security professionals perform quick and easy. If you are new to coding and looking for the right course to cut your teeth on, this is it. This self-paced course starts from the very beginning, assuming you have no prior experience or knowledge of programming. We cover all of the essentials of the language in this two-day course. If you already know the essentials, you will find that the pyWars lab environment allows advanced developers to quickly accelerate to self-taught advanced material that is taught in the full six-day course.

 

This course is designed to give you the skills you need for tweaking, customizing, or outright developing your own tools. We put you on the path of creating your own tools, empowering you to better automate the daily routine of today's information security professional and to achieve more value in less time. Again and again, organizations serious about security emphasize their need for skilled tool builders. There is a huge demand for people who can understand a problem and then rapidly develop prototype code to attack or defend against it. Join us and learn Python in-depth and fully weaponized.
