The community is invited to learn about the latest information security issues at a two-day workshop. From Strategy to Reality: The Bigger Picture will be offered April 10-11 in the Bronco Student Center, Orion Room.
The workshop provides a balance of theory and real-case scenarios demonstrating how security systems have been breached and what solutions are available to prevent them from happening.
From Strategy to Reality: The Bigger Picture explores the latest critical security issues such as government guidelines to help federal agencies fortify their systems, SANS/FBI Top 20 Vulnerabilities and the President's National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. In addition, the workshop addresses the top five IT security challenges identified by corporate security managers.
The workshop is hosted by the Cal Poly Pomona's Computer Information Systems department along with IP3 Inc., the nation's leader in information assurance and information security education and research.
“This workshop reflects our continued commitment to, and leadership role in, providing high-quality information assurance education and training,” says CIS professor Dan Manson, who helped initiate the conference. “We hope to continue this type of collaborative effort for future events.”
The Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency have honored Cal Poly Pomona's Computer Information Systems department with the designation National Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education for academic years 2005-2008.
Cal Poly Pomona is the only California State University with that designation, and one of only three institutions in the state, along with University of California Davis and the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey.
“Cal Poly Pomona is committed to bringing vital educational programs to the local market, and our IT security seminar perfectly complements their commitment. Working with Cal Poly Pomona is a tremendous opportunity. With cyber security a top issue for U.S. corporations and government, information technology education is critical,” said Ken Kousky, IP3 CEO.
Cost to attend the seminar is $895. For course outline, registration information and event location information for this intensive two-day overview on the latest security vulnerabilities and technologies, visit www.ip3seminars.com.
