Bejtlich Teaching New Class at Black Hat in July

I'm pleased to announce I will teach two sessions of a brand-new two day class at Black Hat USA 2013 this summer. The new class is Network Security Monitoring 101. From the overview:

Is your network safe from intruders? Do you know how to find out? Do you know what to do when you learn the truth? If you are a beginner, and need answers to these questions, Network Security Monitoring 101 (NSM101) is the newest Black Hat course for you.

This vendor-neutral, open source software-friendly, reality-driven two-day event will teach students the investigative mindset not found in classes that focus solely on tools. NSM101 is hands-on, lab-centric, and grounded in the latest strategies and tactics that work against adversaries like organized criminals, opportunistic intruders, and advanced persistent threats.

Best of all, this class is designed *for beginners*: all you need is a desire to learn and a laptop ready to run a few virtual machines.

Instructor Richard Bejtlich has taught over 1,000 Black Hat students since 2002, and this brand new, 101-level course will guide you into the world of Network Security Monitoring.

Black Hat has three remaining price points and deadlines for registration.

  • "Regular" ends 31 May

  • "Late" ends 24 July

  • "Onsite" starts at the conference

Seats are filling -- it pays to register early!

If you have any questions about the class, please leave a comment here or contact me via Twitter at @taosecurity. Thank you.

I'm also talking with Black Hat about teaching at their Istanbul and Seattle events later this year.

Hello Anonymous,

I will use the book for inspiration but will create new labs.

Do you think that you might be offering this course in the Metro DC/NoVa area sometime this year?

No, I don't plan to teach the class outside of Black Hat.
