The Universities of the Big 12 and the SANS Institute
<http://www.sans.org/> will be hosting the Higher-ed Information
Technology Security (HITS) 2006 <http://sans.missouri.edu/> conference
on the University of Missouri-Columbia <http://www.missouri.edu/>
campus. The conference will be comprised of a 5-day course on Firewalls,
Perimeter Protection and VPNs with some additional topics related to IT
Security. Dates for the conference are May 21-25, 2006.
The SANS Firewalls, Perimeter Protection and VPNs class (SANS Sec502)
teaches all the pieces required to properly secure a network and keep it
secure in today's incredibly hostile environment. Decoding IP packets,
firewalls, intrusion detection, centralized logging and alerting, VPNs,
auditing, and network design are all covered in depth, using real-world
examples to illustrate the practical knowledge.
In addition the course prepares you for the GIAC Certified Firewalls
<http://www.giac.org/certifications/security/gcfw.php> . The optional
certification is targeted for any individuals responsible for designing,
implementing, configuring, and monitoring a secure perimeter for any
organization; including routers, firewalls, VPNs/remote access, and
overall network design. GIAC Certified Firewall Analysts (GCFWs) have
the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design, configure, and monitor
routers, firewalls, and perimeter defense systems.
SANS is the most trusted and by far the largest source for information
security training and certification in the world. The SANS Institute was
established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education
organization. Its programs now reach more than 165,000 security
professionals, auditors, system administrators, network administrators,
chief information security officers, and CIOs who share the lessons they
are learning and jointly find solutions to the challenges they face.
The course is open to anyone and early registration ends February 17,
2006. Special discounts are available for faculty or staff members from
any accredited EDU (K-12, Community College, Higher Education) or from
Law Enforcement at the state and local level. More information and
registration information is available at http://sans.missouri.edu
