Hacker Guard: Security Baseline Training for IT Administrators and Operations with Continuing Education Meeting Dates: Tuesday, Aug 14 Wednesday, Aug 15 Thursday, Aug 16 Friday, Aug 17 Time: 1pm-4pm EST Laptop Required Continuing Professional Education Credits: 6 CPE/CMU Credits Per Day There are not enough well trained IT administrators and operations staff to meet the daily onslaught of cyber criminal and cyber terrorist activities. Sandia National Labs, NASA, and the State of Texas recently demonstrated that we can address this issue by leveraging the large number of IT admins within an organization to act as a hacker guards to help thwart many of these attacks. The goal is to have IT administrators in an organization serve as the first line of defense as human intrusion detectors. This is an important challenge for organizations because perimeters are routinely being breached, and attackers often roam through networks for weeks or months on end, often without discovery. This new approach, pioneered by organizations such as Sandia Labs, NASA and the State of Texas, is a unique training program for IT operations and admins that teaches them how to: Discover evidence of intruder activity Demonstrate how to work effectively with their organization's security professionals and Provide tools that they can put to work immediately It's the first security program that is tuned directly to the interests of IT administrators and establishes a clear entry career path from a system admin to security professional.
