Security University, Herndon, Virginia; November 4-8 2013.

ISO 27000 (ISO 27K) is the international standard for Best Practices in Implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS). ISO 27K is the comprehensive risk management framework to assure continuous improvement in Cyber Security for all public and private sector enterprises. Certification to ISO 27000 validates an organization's compliance with legal and customer requirements, cyber security standards, as well as government mandates and policy directives.

Security University's ISO 27K Lead Implementer/Auditor course qualifies students to design, implement and audit Information Security Management Systems designed to meet cyber security requirements in every critical infrastructure sector. The course includes training in comprehensive Risk Assessment methodologies, Quality Management Systems (QMS), Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity, and Auditing. These processed are all required by ISO 27001:2005, national standards (NIST 800), and well as new cyber security regulations and government programs (FISMA and PS-Prep). More information here.

This teleconference will feature a one-on-one conversation with Fred Burnside, who until January 2011 served as the director of EPA's criminal enforcement division. In this position, Mr. Burnside was responsible for setting enforcement priorities and overseeing the work of close to 200 criminal agents investigating environmental crimes throughout the nation. This teleconference offers a unique opportunity to hear about EPA's criminal enforcement program from a high ranking government official with detailed knowledge of how the program operates. Mr. Burnside will provide his insight into what EPA looks for in investigating environmental crimes, how best to approach the agency while an investigation is pending, and how to avoid running afoul of environmental regulators in the first instance.
