New law on privacy, e-discovery, and data security is creating an urgent need for professionals who can bridge the gap between the legal department and the cybersecurity team. SANS LEG523 provides this unique professional training, including skills in the analysis and use of contracts, policies, and insurance security questionnaires.
This course covers the law of crime, policy, contracts, liability, compliance, cybersecurity, and active defense – all with a focus on electronically stored and transmitted records. It also teaches investigators how to prepare credible, defensible reports, whether for cybercrimes, forensics, incident response, human resource issues, or other investigations.
The Global Information Assurance Certification (GLEG) associated with LEG523 demonstrates to employers that you have absorbed the sophisticated content of this course and are ready to put it to use. This coveted GIAC certification distinguishes any professional – whether a cybersecurity specialist, auditor, lawyer, or forensics expert – from the rest of the pack. It also strengthens the credibility of forensics investigators as witnesses in court and can help a forensics consultant win more business. And the value of the certification will only grow in the years to come as law and security issues become even more interconnected.
The course also provides training and continuing education for many compliance programs under information security and privacy mandates such as GLBA, HIPAA, FISMA, GDPR, and PCI-DSS.
