"This is where technology is going. Cutting-edge stuff. I'm never disappointed with SANS courses and instructors," said Brian Houlihan with National Credit Union Administration.

Two new auditing courses will be offered in a unique, 3-day, back-to-back format, that will accelerate the pace of learning and vastly enhance students' skills.

Additional new courses include:

  • FOR526: Windows Memory Forensics In-Depth, 'Malware can hide, but it must run', this new course will run for the first time in 2013 at Orlando.
