Included among the course line-up is the new SANS course, SEC450: Blue Team Fundamentals: Security Operations and Analysis.

According to SEC450 course author and dedicated blue-teamer John Hubbard (@SecHubb), "The new SEC450: Blue Team Fundamentals – Security Operations and Analysis course distills the crucial knowledge that defenders must know. It covers both intricate details of data collection and generation, and the big-picture view of how a SOC and cyber defense tools fit together. The course was written to get defenders and analysts up to speed in the shortest amount of time and explain the thought processes for investigation and triage that are needed for everyday analysis tasks. If your job involves using an IDS, SIEM, EDR, and other modern defense tools to triage and investigate intrusions, join me for the official debut of SEC450 in the Asia Pacific region at SANS Singapore in November. Be one of the first to experience this new course from an author who has been in the trenches and fought the same fight."
