SANS Institute has announced SANS Dubai February 2023to be held in-person at the Ritz Carlton, Dubai, from February 27 to March 4, 2023. The training event will focus on threat detection and elimination, strengthening security architecture and managing a security operations center (SOC), while tailoring defence practices to specific organizational needs.

“Modern business is so driven by IT that cyber risk has evolved into business risk. To remain resilient, we believe that knowledge about the adversary is core learning for all security teams. SANS Dubai February is specifically designed around the roles, responsibilities, and disciplines that are common within these security teams,” says Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute.“With hands-on experience in threat-monitoring from leading industry experts, students will have a  holistic understanding of the current attack landscape, and enable them to evade and eliminate sophisticated threats as soon as they complete the course.”

The training program consists of three main modules offered through both in-person training and simultaneous live online sessions. Course modules will be led by Kevin Ripa for FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence; Maxim Deweerdt for SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations; and John Hubbard for MGT551: Building and Leading Security Operation Centres. Sessions will run from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM GST, including breaks. Students also have the opportunity to attend SANS Community Nights, where they can engage and network with the local InfoSec community in Dubai. Data Recovery (Beyond the software), a bonus session by Kevin Ripa, will run on Wednesday, March 1st at 6:30 PM. For more information, or to register (in-person or online), please visit
