The Information Security and Information Technology Auditors Training Hands On Intensity 5 Day course includes role play and case studies that simulate the real-world assessment and certification process. It will provide a mix of formal lectures and practical exercises. This course will include course material from our Cloud Security, FISMA/NIST RMF and our technical hands-on courses, such as Malware and Network Packet Analysis. Course labs may include advanced scanning of system resources, malware creation and detection, exploiting system utilities, testing web applications, testing Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention systems (IPS) and identifying vulnerable web application code.
This course will provide an overview of the updated information security and information technology audit requirements based on the Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA 2014) inspector general reporting requirements; NIST Special Publication 800-53A, Guide for Assessing the Security Controls in Federal Information Systems; and Federal Information System controls Audit Manual (FISCAM).
This course will provide attention to issues as they relate to legacy systems and the transformation of the Federal Government to a more open and transparent environment, which is facilitated by the use of cloud computing, social networking services, and remote access to information using mobile telecommunication devices.
