SANS Institute Introduces New Cybersecurity Training for IT Administrators

On February 20, 2023, SANS Security Awareness, a subsidiary of the SANS Institute, announced the release of "Security Essentials for IT Administrators," a new short-form technical training program. This series offers a comprehensive overview of cybersecurity fundamentals, aimed primarily at those with a foundational grasp of network administration and/or IT systems to keep them updated and informed in the ever-changing cybersecurity space. As more IT professionals, like network/system administrators and engineers, take on security responsibilities, it is important for an organization's overall security to have relevant training for this group.

This series is intended to raise IT professionals' knowledge of the distinct threat landscape they face by drawing on the objectives of such popular SANS training courses as SEC301, SEC388, SEC401, and SEC504. The product line is available to enterprises seeking to improve their security preparedness and awareness by purchasing directly from SANS Security Awareness or via Microsoft's 'Defender for Office 365' bundle.

John Byrne, General Manager of SANS Security Awareness, said, "The launch of the Security Essentials for IT Administrators course marks an exciting chapter in our mission to deliver high-quality security training to professionals in the industry, especially to these users who carry unique risk because of their privileged access and advanced skill set."

These modules offer a powerful solution to organizations seeking to bolster their security posture and streamline workforce management for technical teams."
