Registration Open: Columbus Incident Response Workshop (CCIR)

Tue, February 27, 2007General

On April 20, 2007, CERIAS' Cooperative Computer Incident Response (CCIR) workshop will bring together members of Columbus-area business, IT, and law enforcement communities in order to generate effective solutions for dealing with computer incidents and crimes.

CERIAS will host a workshop on Cooperative Computer Incident Response (CCIR) at the Columbus Learning Center in Columbus, IN, on Friday, April 20, 2007. The third in a series of CCIR workshops coordinated by CERIAS, CCIR Columbus will prepare participants to get maximum results from criminal prosecution of a computer-related incident or crime.

Created by the NW3C and CERT and hosted by the Purdue University College of Technology, the workshop will bring together members of the business, information technology, and law enforcement communities to initiate dialogue on computer security issues. Working together, participants will identify the barriers to effective cooperation and investigate the ways to overcome those barriers.

In groups, participants will define computer-related incidents, learn appropriate levels of response, and share effective solutions for dealing with computer incidents and crimes. Starting in single community teams (i.e., business, information technology, law enforcement), they will analyze the incident. Then, they will form cross-community teams to simulate a task force and make recommendations about how to proceed. Discussion documents will guide them through the process, with checklists for each professional role

The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. Onsite registration begins at 9:00 a.m., and lunch will be provided.

For further information, please contact Lori Floyd. To sign up to attend the workshop, visit the CCIR Columbus registration webpage.  Hurry—the registration deadline is April 13.
