MGT305: Technical Communication and Presentation Skills for Security Professionals

A session at SANS Security West 2013

Wednesday 8th May, 2013

9:00am to 5:00pm (PST)

In my view this course fills a number of very real needs. For several years now I've included sections on how to run meetings in some of my audit and management courses. Invariably students ask, "When is SANS going to write a course on how to do presentations??"

Another thing that many students struggle with is writing an effective whitepaper. Whitepapers are powerful tools that can be used to increase your name recognition as an IT professional. They're also the prime requirement for a GIAC Gold student or SANS STI master's degree candidate.

Finally, there are several courses that deal with issues that can lead to a GIAC certified professional being asked to testify in a court as a fact witness or even as an expert witness. These courses handle all of the important legal aspects, but nowhere did we have a course that can prepare you for the communications aspects of this work.

This is the course that fills all of these needs!
