BETHESDA, MD April 3, 2017 SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Security West 2017 taking place May 9 - 18 in San Diego, CA.

Included among the evening discussions is a talk by the CISO of SANS, Frank Kim, on the Ten Tenets of CISO Success.
According to Frank Kim, "The modern CISO is now accountable for much more than just IT security. Ultimately, CISOs and security leaders need to understand and communicate in terms of business risk. This includes legal, regulatory, and business concerns. How the organization creates values and stays in business. Communication and strategic planning skills are a must in this modern risk landscape".
Courses at SANS Security West 2017 will span across many disciplines including core security, cyber defense, penetration testing, digital forensics and incident response, security management, and application developer. These courses vary in difficulty and are available for those who are new to information security as well as highly seasoned professionals.
