What is SANS SEC487? Part 1

In this wide open edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Micah Hoffman joins me to discuss SANS SEC487 Open-Source Intelligence Gathering and Analysis.

Micah (@WebBreacher) has spent the last year plus putting together the SANS SEC487 course. The course focuses on Open-Source Intelligence Gather and Analysis (OSINT). I had the pleasure of attending the very first iteration of the course. I had an absolute blast and would recommend the course to anyways (even those outside of infosec). I wrote about the course on my blog.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is SANS SEC487?
  • Who should attend the course?
  • What was the origin of the course?
  • How the beta went.
