Front Media Group and IGSN Announce New Training Program
By staff
Front Media Group and Interactive Gaming Security Network (IGSN) come together to form the first IGSN certified internet security training program. A program specifically designed for the Internet Gaming Industry. This is the first of many training programs put on by Front Media Group and collaborating companies offering training designed for the gaming industry. “We plan to announce several gaming related training programs over the next few months. Gone are the times of tackling the bigger picture alone. Specialized training is paramount to industry growth.” Mark Aldrich, Consultant, Front Media Group.

Front Media Group and IGSN offer a two-day seminar entitled “Introduction to Security Basics” April 30 - May 1, 2003. This is the first in a series of training seminars helping companies to secure their networks, software and data from compromise associated with intrusion (hack attacks) from outside or inside forces. “There were 110,000 cyber attacks in 2002, Source: Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Emergency Response Team’s (CERT) but counter measures were available to prevent 99% of these computer intrusions. David Graham, President IGSN.

“We at IGSN want to teach you how to defend your company against these attacks. The course we have laid out and the direction of future courses will empower your employees and provide them with the tools necessary to combat these threats. We believe participation in this first course is the best offense in the battle to keep your networks, software and data secure. Let IGSN show you how.” Graham continues.

This first seminar will help system administrators set up, maintain, and audit a secure network for daily operation in a global internet environment. This multi-faceted certificate program offers basic to advanced level courses to keep up with the daily knowledge base required to ensure proper levels of security. The internet environment is changing at a rapid rate and security is paramount in running an internet only business.

“We found at Front Media Group most companies don’t realize they leave the back door open and the front door locked. It is a daunting task keeping staff up to date regarding the constant changes in your network, let alone your internet security. We asked ourselves who specializes in security and internet gaming. That’s when we found IGSN, a company dedicated to both security and internet gaming. IGSN is not a cookie cutter solution, they offer services designed with gaming in mind. After we tested their services, understood the knowledge they possess, and the professionalism with which they tackled the problems at hand, we decided they were the right fit to provide this type of training.” Aldrich continues.

The first course is broken into three elements:

1.Set up, maintain and audit a secure network

2.Hands on instruction with the use of essential hacker tools

3.Q&A allowing participants to solve real world problems from real world experts

All attendees will leave with a solid methodology on how to test the security of their own network, document their results, and implement the changes necessary to keep their network secure.

This is a hands-on seminar/training course which will help technical people from any level of expertise prepare for security challenges.
