BETHESDA, Md., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute today announced its return to San Diego on May 8-17 for SANS Security West 2014.

Skills will be taught through hands-on courses covering intrusion detection, advanced network forensics and analysis, advanced smartphone forensics, penetration testing and more.
