EMU Center for Regional and National Security hosts national workshop about information assurance

YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University’s Center for Regional and National Security (CeRNS) will host a two-day workshop entitled “From Strategy to Reality: Implementing a Policy Centric IT Security Architecture,” Nov. 30-Dec. 1

            The event is sponsored by IP3 Inc., one of the nation’s leaders in information assurance and information security education and research. The same workshop has been delivered to more than 2,000 IT security professionals nationwide.

IP3’s workshop provides a balance of theory and real-case scenarios demonstrating how security systems have been breached and what solutions are out there to prevent it from happening to your business or organization.

            “The Center for Regional and National Security is pleased to offer this training initiative as part of our commitment to the Information Assurance Community since receiving our NSA Center of Academic Excellence status,” said Gerald “Skip” Lawver, founder of CeRNS.

Eastern Michigan University faculty, staff, students and the affiliated corporate partners of the University are eligible for $15,000 in scholarship funds to attend the workshop.

“Eastern Michigan University is committed to bringing vital educational programs to the local market, and IT security is a vital and timely topic.  Security vulnerabilities and Internet exploits are exploding just as corporations get saddled with increasingly complex regulations.  Working with the University is a tremendous opportunity.  With cyber security a top issue for U.S. corporations and government, information technology education is critical,” said Ken Kousky, IP3 CEO.

“No single two-day workshop provides as much management and leadership insight for the struggling IT security professional,” Kousky said.

EMU is one of 20 sites IP3 will visit during its 2005 national workshop tour.  Cost to attend is $795.  For a course outline, registration information and event location information for this intensive 2-day overview on the latest security vulnerabilities and technologies, visit www.ip3seminars.com
