23 & 24 Mar 10 Cyber Security Conference Missions, Initiatives, Opportunities & Risks. Last year, DoD networks suffered an onslaught of an estimated 360 million cyber attacks. As cyber attacks on US federal and commercial computer systems increase at alarming rates, the risk for national security to be compromised is also growing. Through cyber espionage and data theft, China acquired Joint Strike Fighter (JSF-35) aircraft plans. On eBay, a hard drive containing US missile defense data was for sale. Both the State of Virginia and the University of California, Berkley suffered network and database breaches to their healthcare IT systems. Critical infrastructure is being hit by an estimated 1000 or more attacks from hackers and malicious code every year. The financial and economic impacts of a one day cyber sabotage to disrupt energy infrastructure and US financial transactions is estimated at over $35 billion USD. The 2010 national cyber budget will be in the excess of $7 billion USD, but is that enough? Given our ever-increasing reliance on digital connectivity, and with the reality of intensifying cyber threats from states such as China and Russia, it is a national imperative that the US directly engages these threats in order to avert potential catastrophe.

08-15 Jul 10 SANS WhatWorks in Forensics and Incident Response Summit 2010 On a daily basis, you use digital devices constantly. You have a mobile device where you make phone calls, text message, post on Twitter, and surf the web. You use a computer to read email, pay bills, order groceries, and even watch TV. You probably also have one or more of the following devices: GPS, video game system, eReader, MP3 player, digital video recorder, or more. For better or worse, our lives and our personal/private data are now recorded on these devices moment-by-moment. As a result, crimes, civil litigation cases, and incidents exploiting your stored data found on these devices are increasing. The need for digital forensic professionals to analyze these devices is increasing due to the sheer number of incidents and cases that every organization faces. Incidents such as TJX, Heartland, and Hannaford, are routinely in the news. Security data breach costs are in the millions of dollars. Being able to effectively respond, investigate, and eventually answer difficult questions is crucial. This summit returns this summer to discuss the latest trends and to hear from industry experts.

19 & 20 Aug 10 SANS WhatWorks in Virtualization and Cloud Computing Summit This Summit brings together industry leaders to help enterprises realize the enormous benefits of virtualization while addressing the new security challenges that it creates. You'll discuss the latest processes and tools for securing your virtualized systems in open forums designed to bring you together with both industry experts and your peers facing the same day-to-day challenges. Since securing an enterprise doesn't have a "one size fits all" solution, you'll be able to get answers to your organization's individual requirements in detailed Q&A sessions. If you're considering deploying virtualization, or increasing your current deployment, vendor "shoot-outs" provide you with a unique opportunity to ask the hard questions to determine what tools will best fit your organization's requirements. Whether your company is just beginning to use virtualization technologies or if you've had it deployed for years, this SANS Summit is designed to increase your knowledge and awareness of virtualization's security issues and how best to address them in your organization.

18 & 19 Feb 10 Information Assurance - Latest Requirements and Methods Covertly and overtly, government and private networks are under attack every hour of every day. This continuous assault on the nation's information networks illustrates the need for effective Information Assurance (IA). An attacker needs only one vulnerability to successfully penetrate a system; a defender requires a 100% comprehensive solution. The DoD has made Information Assurance a major element of the JCIDS process and replaced the venerable DITSCAP with the Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP). Are you developing secure products in compliance with DoD’s latest IA requirements? The best Information Assurance requires a systematic, technical, holistic, architectural approach, and this seminar will demonstrate how such an approach to IA can ensure success. This seminar provides you with the latest tools and techniques for designing and implementing IA Architectures. You will receive the leading-edge techniques for developing and implementing Security Architectures and securing systems, networks and platforms. Additionally, you will receive the latest information on DoD?s IA policy and an update on the Defense-wide Information Assurance Program (DIAP), as well as the latest technology trends in IA.

23 & 24 Mar 10 Cyber Security Conference Missions, Initiatives, Opportunities & Risks. Last year, DoD networks suffered an onslaught of an estimated 360 million cyber attacks. As cyber attacks on US federal and commercial computer systems increase at alarming rates, the risk for national security to be compromised is also growing. Through cyber espionage and data theft, China acquired Joint Strike Fighter (JSF-35) aircraft plans. On eBay, a hard drive containing US missile defense data was for sale. Both the State of Virginia and the University of California, Berkley suffered network and database breaches to their healthcare IT systems. Critical infrastructure is being hit by an estimated 1000 or more attacks from hackers and malicious code every year. The financial and economic impacts of a one day cyber sabotage to disrupt energy infrastructure and US financial transactions is estimated at over $35 billion USD. The 2010 national cyber budget will be in the excess of $7 billion USD, but is that enough? Given our ever-increasing reliance on digital connectivity, and with the reality of intensifying cyber threats from states such as China and Russia, it is a national imperative that the US directly engages these threats in order to avert potential catastrophe.

29 & 30 Mar 10 Information Assurance - Latest Requirements and Methods Covertly and overtly, government and private networks are under attack every hour of every day. This continuous assault on the nation's information networks illustrates the need for effective Information Assurance (IA). An attacker needs only one vulnerability to successfully penetrate a system; a defender requires a 100% comprehensive solution. The DoD has made Information Assurance a major element of the JCIDS process and replaced the venerable DITSCAP with the Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP). Are you developing secure products in compliance with DoD’s latest IA requirements? The best Information Assurance requires a systematic, technical, holistic, architectural approach, and this seminar will demonstrate how such an approach to IA can ensure success. This seminar provides you with the latest tools and techniques for designing and implementing IA Architectures. You will receive the leading-edge techniques for developing and implementing Security Architectures and securing systems, networks and platforms. Additionally, you will receive the latest information on DoD?s IA policy and an update on the Defense-wide Information Assurance Program (DIAP), as well as the latest technology trends in IA.

Like most hacker cons, it will run Friday to Sunday. We'll have two tracks: one for InfoSec topics and the other track will be a mix of all the other topics with a bit of an emphasis on hardware hacking and DIY electronics. Besides our perennial InfoSec favorites, we want to hear from some new voices on a wider range of topics. If it's a good hack, we want to hear what you're doing.
Along with the two talk tracks, we'll have a hardware hacking lounge where you can work on the hackable badge or anything else you're inspired to do. While we all have the utmost respect for Joe Grand, his badges aren't as hackable as we'd like. We'll be going with an open source, open hardware platform for the QuahogCon badge.

08-15 Jul 10 SANS WhatWorks in Forensics and Incident Response Summit 2010 On a daily basis, you use digital devices constantly. You have a mobile device where you make phone calls, text message, post on Twitter, and surf the web. You use a computer to read email, pay bills, order groceries, and even watch TV. You probably also have one or more of the following devices: GPS, video game system, eReader, MP3 player, digital video recorder, or more. For better or worse, our lives and our personal/private data are now recorded on these devices moment-by-moment. As a result, crimes, civil litigation cases, and incidents exploiting your stored data found on these devices are increasing. The need for digital forensic professionals to analyze these devices is increasing due to the sheer number of incidents and cases that every organization faces. Incidents such as TJX, Heartland, and Hannaford, are routinely in the news. Security data breach costs are in the millions of dollars. Being able to effectively respond, investigate, and eventually answer difficult questions is crucial. This summit returns this summer to discuss the latest trends and to hear from industry experts.

19 & 20 Aug 10 SANS WhatWorks in Virtualization and Cloud Computing Summit This Summit brings together industry leaders to help enterprises realize the enormous benefits of virtualization while addressing the new security challenges that it creates. You'll discuss the latest processes and tools for securing your virtualized systems in open forums designed to bring you together with both industry experts and your peers facing the same day-to-day challenges. Since securing an enterprise doesn't have a "one size fits all" solution, you'll be able to get answers to your organization's individual requirements in detailed Q&A sessions. If you're considering deploying virtualization, or increasing your current deployment, vendor "shoot-outs" provide you with a unique opportunity to ask the hard questions to determine what tools will best fit your organization's requirements. Whether your company is just beginning to use virtualization technologies or if you've had it deployed for years, this SANS Summit is designed to increase your knowledge and awareness of virtualization's security issues and how best to address them in your organization.

01 Sep 10-11 Mar 11 Information Operations (IO) Qualification Course FA30 This course develops FA 30 Officers to successfully serve their commands on staffs at brigade through corps level. Phase 1 is approximately 40 hrs of web based distance learning that you do at your own pace. Phase 2 is 7 months of IDT in a virtual classroom (from any internet connected computer). Phase 3 is a 15-day resident exercise held at FT Leavenworth KS in conjunction with an Active Duty FA30 course. The course is for Captains through Colonels who are assigned or will be assigned to FA 30 positions. During Phase 2 you will attend weekly four-hour classes using a web based application. You will be assigned to a student cohort with an instructor for Phase 2. These classes are conducted on weekday evenings. WORKLOAD: the course replicates the 12-week Active Duty FA 30 course. Therefore, it requires a significant time commitment. Once Phase 2 begins you should expect to commit time similar to an on-line Master’s program including presentations, papers, readings, exercises, and tests.
LOCATION: Online after ATRRS Enrollment with an Internet Connection and Personnel Computer via a Learning Management System (LMS) located at FT Leavenworth. Your classroom is your living room, office or almost any location around the globe.
