The National Institute of
Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Federal Information Systems
Security Educators’ Association (FISSEA) are co-hosting FISSEA’s 23rd
annual conference March 23-25, 2010, at the Natcher Conference Center at
the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.
“Unraveling the Enigma of Role-Based Training” is
designed for information systems security professionals from government,
industry or academia who are trainers, developers, educators, managers,
supervisors or researchers involved with information systems security
awareness, training, education and certification. In the context of
information security, role-based training provides individuals with the
knowledge and skills needed for the security functions they perform.
Two tracks will be offered: “Role-based Training” and
“Security Awareness Training and Education.” Attendees will learn more
about role-based training and its implementation, new techniques for
developing and conducting Awareness and Training programs, updated
cyber-security initiatives, opportunities to network with the federal
cybersecurity training community, and professional development.
