Feedback from Network Security Monitoring 101 Classes

At Black Hat in Las Vegas I taught two Network Security Monitoring 101 (NSM101) classes. This is a new class that I developed this year, after retiring the third edition of my TCP/IP Weapons School. Once again I was glad to have Steve Andres from Special Ops Security there to help students with questions and lab issues. I wanted to share some feedback from the classes, in case any of you are considering attending an upcoming edition. Currently I'm scheduled to teach at Black Hat Seattle on 9-10 December. I plan to continue offering my class through Black Hat as they expand their training location offerings. Student feedback from NSM101 included: Great tools, fun labs, very prepared -- a lot of experience from interesting real world scenarios. This course was everything I hoped for and more. Very impressive considering the course is new. One of the best training classes I have ever taken. Richard hosted an exemplary class. I thought the class was excellent, and
