It will be pretty good (I'll be there so it will have that cool, party-like
glow).  I am including an overview of the workshop below:

Sponsored by GFT Iberia <http://www.gft-iberia.com/>.
Edificio Deutsche Bank
Vial Interpolar Del Valles, S/N
Parque de Actividades Econ├│micas Can Sant Joan
Sant Cugat del Valles
This half-day workshop in spanish is free for all attendees and will be
hosted by Pete Herzog, creator of the OSSTMM, and presented in Spanish by 3
Spanish key contributors of the OSSTMM: Angel Uru├▒uela, Jordi Martinez, and
Miguel-Angel Dominguez. Contact us <mailto:workshop () ideahamster org> for
reservation and location details.

Understanding the OSSTMM Workshop covers background information into the
OSSTMM, the most widely used and accepted security methodology and the
successful application of it. Detailed explanations about the structure and
use of the methodology are the focus of the workshop while defining the
standards in security testing and what constitutes a "thorough" security
test. This workshop demonstrates through presentation and example how the
OSSTMM takes security testing far beyond the networked computer systems and
into areas such as marketing, human resources, and the executive boardroom.

The workshop describes not just the security testing methodology but how it
works, how it is to be used, and why it has been designed as such. Details
from Pete Herzog, the creator, and other key contributors makes this
workshop highly informational.

Attendance is interesting for anyone who is involved in managerial decisions
of an organization or is concerned about their security or isn't sure if
security really is a concern yet. It is pertinent for anyone directly
involved with security testers or auditors whether they are an in-house team
or contracted. Participants do not have to have previous security knowledge
or training.

Topics covered will be:
applications of security testing and the OSSTMM
testing and analysis concepts
using and understanding the OSSTMM
calculating RAVs
understanding the modules, tasks, and the expected results of a complete
security test
