InfoSec-Specific Executive Development for CISOs and Aspiring Security Leaders.
Live Faculty-led instruction and interactive labs to build you and your team's InfoSec skills
If you’re less familiar with IANS you might be wondering, “who are the IANS Faculty?" Far more than contributors to the blog, the Faculty’s skills and expertise are the core of all of IANS’ services, insights and educational events.
The IANS Faculty is made up of over 80 independent information security practitioners, many of whom are nationally
recognized experts in both offense and defense, and span nearly every field, from Big 5 banking and the federal government to healthcare and manufacturing.
Faculty members include information security professionals who started security programs
in small companies, as well as current or former CISOs for the Fortune 1000. Our current members include Jake Williams, Dave Shackleford, Aaron Turner, Justine Bone, James and Kelli Tarala, Wolfgang Goerlich, Tanya Janca, Rich Guida, among others.
As actual practitioners, rather than analysts, our Faculty encounter the same challenges faced by security teams every day and understand the world many InfoSec professionals face - one of increasing threats and limited budgets. They are actually "in
the trenches," and as a result, they bring insights based on real-world experience and expertise, not theories.
Faculty include founding members of the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), a co-founder of the Technology Association of Georgia’s (TAG) Information Security Society and many who have created penetration-testing tools that are now industry
standards, including the PenTesters Framework (PTF), Unicorn, MailSniper, SamuraiWTF and MobiSec, as well as dozens of custom tools.
In addition, our Faculty have authored books spanning the security landscape, including:
It's the goal of the IANS Faculty to improve our clients’ security skill sets, help teams better understand the risks and threats they face, and provide step-by-step action plans for mitigating them effectively. Our 80-plus Faculty members can provide
a breadth of experience to help solve complex security challenges at any stage in a security project, across any level of maturity.
Each Faculty interaction, whether it’s providing guidance on implementing secure CI/CD pipelines with our Ask-An-Expert service or a penetration test through a consulting engagement, is designed to transfer
knowledge and strengthen a security team’s internal capabilities.
Security expertise is difficult to find and retain. When you need outside help, you want to make sure you’re bringing in the best— not someone who is learning on the job. With IANS, you work with the top experts in information security.
