Hello Josh and OWASP Alabama folks!


As you may know, the SANS Institute is bringing the Community SANS

program back to Birmingham September 15 - 22, 2008.  We will be offering

one of our most popular courses, SANS Security 504: Hacker Techniques,

Exploits and Incident Handling in our signature Bootcamp style.


I am writing today for two reasons.  First of all, with our Community

SANS events we really like to offer support to the local chapters in the

communities we serve so we would like to offer you a speaking

opportunity during our event.  Normally we offer you a 15minute

presentation (Lunch n Learn) in order for you to let our attendees know

more about your local chapter, its activities and benefits of membership.


Secondly, we would be very happy to offer your members a discount on

Tuition for this course with use of Discount Code "COINS10".  I have

included a course announcement below for distribution.  Also, anyone

registering before Aug 6th saves another $250 Early-Bird and the COINS

discount is applicable on that already reduced tuition for further savings!



I hope to hear back from you and that we can work with your chapter to

help strengthen your local network security community in Birmingham!

Exploits and Incident Handling, in our signature Bootcamp style

training.  We are offering all members of your local chapter a 10%

discount with use of Discount Code "COINS10".

most people enroll for after having taken SANS Security Essentials,

which we ran in Birmingham last September.


Register by August 6 and save $250 on your tuition fees.  For complete

Security 504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits and Incident Handling is our

most popular technical course.  Please read the comments below from

recent course alumni:


~   "The real-life examples really build the concepts presented. A great

~   class and an outstanding teacher!" - John Senn, Great Basin Bank


~   "An incredibly detailed course on exploits used by attackers trying

~    to gain access to your network." - Ernie Hernandez, USJFCOM


~   "Hands-on practice and detailed update on best tools and hacker

~   attacks, plus easy setup for tool use."

~   - Andy Proctor, GR Consulting


The GCIH certification, which you can earn after attending Security 504:

Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling, is one of the

certifications required for the Master of Science Degree in Information

Security Engineering from the SANS Technology Institute,




What makes this course different from "Ethical Hacking" courses is the

technical depth, quality of hands-on exercises, and the SANS 6-step

process for properly handling incidents.
