CERT-K Cyber Security Workshop rescheduled for April 08


Tvm: The Cyber Security Training Workshop for IT Companies in Trivandrum being organised by the Kerala Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-K) has been rescheduled for April 08, 2011. The full day workshop for Information Security Professionals, Web / Network and System Administrators will be held at the Park Centre in Technopark.

Topics like Cyber Security – within the company and outside for Clients / Customers; Application Vulnerabilities and Case Studies with a Kerala perspective, will be handled by eminent resources from the industry. Of late, Kerala has been facing a surge in cyber attacks, especially on Government websites and this training assumes significance as many Technopark companies work on Government projects. The workshop will also focus on the need to strengthen security incident response as well as to take proper proactive steps to ensure cyber safety and security.

This cyber security training will provide information security professionals a broader understanding of the challenges required to secure Internet-based and networked computer systems and defend critical IT infrastructure from cyber attacks. Cyber attacks can result in critical business losses. Cyber criminals and hackers often target firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems and access controls to penetrate the network and cause serious damage to network infrastructure and electronic data.

CERT-K is the nodal agency under the Department of IT, Government of Kerala, for monitoring and reporting cyber security incidents in the State. Ever since its launch, CERT-K has conducted similar trainings and awareness programmes for several Government Departments and Organisations including private institutions. CERT-K works in line with the Indian CERT (CERT-In), the national nodal agency under the Department of IT (Ministry of Communications & IT, Government of India) for responding to computer security incidents pertaining to the Indian Cyber Space.
