Please note that UC Davis has made many of the podcasts and
presentations from its 2007 IT Security Symposium available without
access restrictions. This content is located at
http://itsecuritysymposium.ucdavis.edu/presentations.cfm. I invite you
to explore the symposium Web site as it provides an example of a
multiple-day security training event with broad security content that
takes full advantage of campus facilities for lectures and hands-on

Sorry I didn't hear about it until it was already going on...guess I'll
have to wait until 2009 :-(

Some of you sessions look really interesting.  Any chance of getting
access to the podcasts?

As a longer term effort, you might consider the possibility of
leveraging area interest for security training. For example, every two
years, UC Davis hosts a 2.5 day security training conference for
technical administrators (see  http://itsecuritysymposium.ucdavis.edu/).
This is a break-even event, exclusive of staff time. The event this year
hosts 50 security-related instructional labs and lectures and a
registrant fee of $85.

I recently stepped into the title of Security Manager. We're a small
school and this is a new position for us. I'd only maintained the
servers, switches and firewalls before. I have no one to mentor me and
very little budget for training. I can spend approximately $3-5K on
formal training this year. I was thinking of a good online class so all
the money goes toward training rather than hotels and travel. Until now,
everything I've learned has been mostly on my own; although I recently
attended Pentration Testing Training. What other training, both formal
and informal, would benefit me and my school the most? I've been
thinking of CCNA and I would like to learn how to use Snort since it's
free. Will CCNA be beneficial or should I buy a good beginners book on
Snort. Am I way off the mark for what I need to study? I need to get up
to speed quickly and can't afford to guess at what I need. Please help.

Thanks in advance,
