With SecureWorld cybersecurity conferences about to kick off the fall 2018 season, our team is getting some questions about SecureWorld PLUS courses, through which you can gain a competitive advantage and earn additional CPEs.

Here are some upcoming cybersecurity courses on threat intelligence, AI and blockchain, and NIST.

Class 1: NIST, Twin Cities (9/5):

"Designing and Building a Cybersecurity Program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework," taught by Larry Wilson, CISO of UMass.

Says Wilson: “Organizations who are currently using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework or are planning to use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for their cybersecurity program will benefit from this course.”

Here’s an interview with Larry on what to expect. Register here. 

Class 2: AI & Blockchain, Bay Area (8/21), Twin Cities (9/5):

"How to Build the Future: A Deep Dive into Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Preparing Your Organization for 5-10 Years Ahead," taught by Steve Brown, former Intel Chief Evangelist & Futurist.

“In this workshop, you will learn about two of the most important technologies shaping our future, Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technology. You will then learn how to use the Futurecasting process to model, plan, and build future experiences, including some that are a built around AI and blockchain,” says Steve.

While it does discuss some technical topics at a high level, this workshop is open and beneficial to anyone.  You will learn new techniques that will enable you to imagine, plan and build the future your organization wants.

Here is an interview with Steve as he gives a preview of what he will cover in this PLUS course. Bay Area and Twin Cities registration.

Class 3: Dark Web & Threat Intelligence, Bay Area 8/21 & Online (Starting 8/14)

"Cyber Crimes, Threat Intelligence, and the Dark Web" is led by Roy Zur, a former Israeli Intelligence Major.

"This practical online workshop will reveal the secrets of the Dark Web, cyber criminals, and government-led hacking groups. Attendees will acquire knowledge, skills, and tools to search the Dark Web and analyze cyber threat intelligence. Additionally, attendees will explore how to leverage cyber intelligence on the web to proactively approach complex processes as due diligence and litigation documentation, and will learn how hackers use cyber intelligence to build advanced social engineering campaigns."
