Role-Based Training for IT Security Is the Topic of March Educators' Conference

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Federal Information Systems Security Educators' Association (FISSEA) are co-hosting FISSEA's 23rd annual conference March 23-25, 2010, at the Natcher Conference Center at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

"Unraveling the Enigma of Role-Based Training" is designed for information systems security professionals from government, industry or academia who are trainers, developers, educators, managers, supervisors or researchers involved with information systems security awareness, training, education and certification. In the context of information security, role-based training provides individuals with the knowledge and skills needed for the security functions they perform.

Two tracks will be offered: "Role-based Training" and "Security Awareness Training and Education." Attendees will learn more about role-based training and its implementation, new techniques for developing and conducting Awareness and Training programs, updated cyber-security initiatives, opportunities to network with the federal cybersecurity training community, and professional development.

Registration information can be found online (link removed because it is no longer active); and more information can be found online.

Journalists interested in attending should contact Evelyn Brown, evelyn.brown [at] (evelyn[dot]brown[at]nist[dot]gov), (301) 975-5661.
