Description

Training day for THE Houston area security conference, HOU.SEC.CON 8.0 (April 3, 2018) at Royal Sonesta Houston Hotel. Training class tickets DO NOT include admission to the Sessions.

CLASS 1:

Preparing and Responding to an Endpoint Incident, What to Configure, What to Look for (Instructor: Michael Gough)

Responding to an incident, malware discovery and basic analysis is an essential skill for today’s Information Security and IT professionals. This course focuses on how to configure a system for investigation, discover if a system has malware, and the goal and objective is to respond quickly, obtain actionable information, and improve your Information Security program. Tools and techniques used and steps to analyze a system to determine if a system is clean or truly infected will be covered. The concept of Malware Management, Malware Discovery and Basic Malware Analysis will be discussed with exercises linking the three concepts together.

This course is intended for any Information Security or IT professional. The focus will be on Windows systems; but will touch on some tools for Apple and Linux systems as well. All attendees will get a copy of LOG-MD Professional as part of the class. Bring a laptop you can infect!


CLASS 2:

Effective Security Leader Training: A Business-Driven Approach with Practical Management Techniques (Instructor: Philip J. Beyer)

Being an effective security leader is a challenging prospect. As demand for security professionals increases, technical contributors find themselves thrust into management and leadership positions. Often these contributors feel poorly equipped for their new roles. Unfortunately, they grapple for answers, resources, and support in a haphazard way, lacking clarity or effective practices.

This training outlines a method of practice which produces professional value over time. It addresses the differences between technical contribution and management, and between management and leadership. The intended audience are those hungry for guidance, those starting to figure things out the hard way, and those who simply want to deliver outstanding value to their employers and the security profession.

The topics include concrete recommendations about how to communicate with peers, increase influence with executives, build relationships with one’s team, introduce risk to the decision-making process, and streamline business innovation.


CLASS 3:

Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity – Red-Team/Blue-Team Bootcamp (Instructor: Clint Bodungen and Kevin Lackey) Provided by LEO Cyber Security - See through the eyes of the hacker… defend like a pro. This class will introduce students to the same kinds of cyber-attacks that bad guys are currently deploying on industrial control systems, and how to defend against them, in an immersive, hands-on training environment. Students will get hands-on experience with industrial controllers (PLCs), attack tools and techniques, as well as defense tools and techniques. The class is taught in a Red-Team/Blue-Team format, where students take turns attacking and defending industrial infrastructure, which is presented in a combination of physical, real-world devices and an immersive, 3D virtual-reality world. This curriculum was developed by well-known ICS industry professionals Clint Bodungen (Author of “Hacking Exposed: ICS”) and Kevin Lackey. Provided by LEO Cyber Security
