Information Security Workshop
The information security industry is one of the very few that hasn't been severely impacted by the economic downturn. Many companies in this sector have thrived in the past 12 months. If you're in this line of work, you know why that is - the bad guys are working even harder and the enterprises can't afford to tighten the security budget without immediate consequences.
IT security professionals need to arm themselves with skills that are currently in demand as well as relevant for the future, according to industry watchers, who also list the toughest certificates in the industry and explain why IT security professionals need to know more than just technical know-how.
The scope of the problem we will face is easy illustrated with numbers. By 2015 there will be 15 billion devices communicating over the Internet and this will include rising fragmented workforces and a sea of mobile workers using social networking and collaborative technologies to do their work. With all the security troubles both organizations and end users are experiencing right now, you can only imagine how many threats will emerge in the next few years.
This workshop is specifically designed to provide the right knowledge to the aspiring Hacking and Cyber Security enthusiasts. This workshop will explore the various means that an intruder has, to gain access to computer resources. It will investigate weaknesses by discussing the theoretical background behind, and whenever possible, actually performing the attack.
The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days with eight hours session each day, in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions. At the end of this workshop a competition will be organized among the participating students where each participating student will get Certificate of Participation and the Winners will get Certificate of Merit.
