Registration Open: Fort Wayne Incident Response Workshop (CCIR)

Thu, March 09, 2006General

On March 24, CERIAS’ Cooperative Computer Incident Response (CCIR) workshop will bring together members of Fort Wayne-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 Indiana Data Center in Fort Wayne, IN, on Saturday, March 24, 2006. The second in a series of CCIR workshops coordinated by CERIAS, CCIR Fort Wayne will prepare participants to get maximum results from criminal prosecution of a computer-related incident or crime.

Created by the NW3C and CERT, 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. 

The six hour workshop will begin with a description of an actual case by an FBI official and an overview of resources in the Fort Wayne area. 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 10 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. Onsite registration begins at 9:30 a.m., and lunch will be provided. 

For further information, please contact Lori Floyd. To sign up to attend the workshop, visit the CCIR Fort Wayne registration webpage. Hurry—the registration deadline is March 16.
