Information Security Training Available
Looking for information security training for your technical staff? The Enterprise Security Program has several opportunities for both free and paid training.
SANS Securing the Human Developer Training
The STH Developer training is an extension of the Securing the Human End User training most state employees have completed the past two years. It focuses on the OWASP top ten web vulnerabilities and the system development life cycle. There are 18 7-10 minute modules in the program. During the discount purchase period licenses are $250 per person. We need to purchase a minimum of 10 seats. For more information and samples of the modules visit:
SANS Online Training and Certification
SANS offers a variety of long courses, most of which prepare students for security certifications. During the discount purchase period courses are $2,330 each, with a minimum of three courses (all agencies combined). Certification exam vouchers can be purchased at the same time for $629 each. Courses can be taken either through SANS OnDemand or SANS vLive. For more information about available courses visit:
The current discount purchase window for SANS courses ends on July 31, 2015. If you are interested, but this timing doesn’t work, there will be another discount purchase period this winter – usually from December until the end of January.
Federal Virtual Training Environment (FedVTE)
Just when you thought we were teasing about the FREE courses available, we’ll tell you about the FedVTE cybersecurity training system. Courses range from beginner to advanced levels and are available at no cost to users. Sign up is easy at: www.Fedvte.usalearning.gov and a catalog of available courses is on the site.
