Event description

Description

This course is created and certified by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. It is delivered locally by authorised SEI Instructors.

This three-day course provides current and future managers of computer security incident response teams (CSIRTs) with a pragmatic view of the issues that they will face in operating an effective team.

The course provides insight into the work that CSIRT staff may be expected to handle. The course also provides prospective or current managers with an overview of the incident handling process and the types of tools and infrastructure needed to be effective. Technical issues are discussed from a management perspective. Topics include hiring CSIRT staff, identifying critical information, publishing information, establishing effective working relationships, working with law enforcement, evaluating CSIRT operations, building CSIRT service capacity, and the importance of pre-established policies and procedures.

The course incorporates interactive instruction, exercises, and role playing. During a simulated incident, attendees will gain experience with the type of decisions they might face on a regular basis.

Before attending this course, participants are encouraged to attend the companion course, Creating a Computer Security Incident Response Team. This course is offered the day before the Managing CSIRTs course.
