The ND Department of Emergency Services in conjunction with TEEX is hosting two Cyber Security Courses in ND October 16 and 17, 2012; AWR-136, Essentials of Community Cyber Security and MGT-384, The EOC's role in community Cyber Security. Course times are from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day. Course participants must complete both courses thus the registration is for both courses.

These courses are based on the Community Cyber Security Maturity Model (CCSMM) that provides methods for communities to enhance their ability to successfully prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from a Cyber Security incident. The methods defined by the CCSMM include: Current Cyber Security Posture Measurement, Security Posture Measurement, Security Posture Improvement Plan Creation, and A Common Language for Cyber Security Discussion. The courses are designed for state, local, tribal, and private sector representatives with a role in an emergency operations center or support emergency operations.

AWR-136, Essentials of Community Cyber Security is a half-day lecture training course which places the issues of cyber security in a community context and demonstrates how cyber-attacks by terrorist organizations can impact, prevent, and/or stop business operations, and emergency responses. The lecture cover cyber threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures, explain how computer systems and networks are vulnerable, and how this vulnerability affects the organization.

MGT-384, The EOC's Role in Community Cyber Security is a 12 hour non-technical course designed to provide an awareness of how cyber events can impact a community, an emergency operations center, and our daily lives. In this course, participants will discover the roles and responsibilities needed to detect, prevent, and respond to a cyber-security incident. Using past cyber events, participants will explore how the EOC ad community would plan for and manage information and resources needed for a cyber-event and understand how cyber can be used to affect, disrupt, and/or complicate emergency responses.

The course location is the Bismarck Comfort Inn. A block of rooms is reserved until September 28, 2012. To make reservations call the Comfort Inn at 701-223-1911 and ask for the "Cyber-Security" Block.

The Department of Emergency Services will reimburse North Dakota course participants from outside the Bismarck area for motel and meals at state rates and according to state policy.
