SANS Threat Analysis Rundown
STAR Webcast Series hosted by Katie Nickels
The SANS Threat Analysis Rundown (STAR) is an all-new webcast series that brings you the inside scoop on what you need to know about cyber threats. Hosted by SANS Instructor Katie Nickels, this series will bring you different voices from around the community to ensure you’re up-to-date on what’s happening in the threat landscape so you can take action.
Every day, analysts track what adversaries are doing and how we can better protect our networks based on that – but it’s often overwhelming to track everything. STAR will let you hear from the people who do this on a daily basis and break down that information to let you take action on it in your own organization. STAR will approach threats from all angles, and you’ll get different takes each month. Some months we’ll focus on specific adversaries or malware, and some we’ll focus on a broader view like industry targeting.
