Cybersecurity awareness presentation scheduled


Do you practice good “cyber hygiene”? The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a vested interest in ensuring you do, and an opportunity to raise your awareness about Internet safety is coming up on Tues., March 22.

The School of Computing and Software Engineering’s Center for Information Security Education will host an educational seminar at Southern Polytechnic State University given by DHS representatives on the agency’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign. “Stop. Think. Connect,” aims to combat the growing number of attacks on the nation’s cyber networks, which has become, in President Obama’s words, “one of the most serious economic and national security threats our nation faces.”

The program – arranged by Dr. Andy Wang, chair of the SPSU Department of Information Technology, and Dr. Sarah North, associate professor of Information Technology – is open to the general public, as well as students, faculty and staff. The speakers are the campaign’s director, Timothy Fraser, who is a technical expert in cybersecurity, and Bruce McConnell, senior counsel to the National Programs and Protection Directorate at the DHS.

According to a recent White House Cyberspace Policy Review, “People cannot value security without first understanding how much is at risk. Therefore, the federal government initiated a national public awareness and education campaign based on public messages to promote responsible use of the Internet and awareness of fraud, identity theft, cyber predators, and cyber ethics.”

The event will take place in the auditorium (Room 202) of the Engineering Technology Center from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

SPSU (SPISA) Competition Team competes in 2011 SECCDC

The SPSU (SPISA) Competition Team recently participated in the 2011 Southeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (SECCDC) held at Kennesaw State University on March 8-10, 2011 during the SPSU Spring Break. The competition focused on the operational aspect of managing and protecting an existing networked, client-server information system infrastructure. Each student team was scored based on their ability to detect and respond to outside threats, maintain availability of existing services such as DNS, MAIL, WEB, ECOM, Database and the associated servers, while balancing security needs against business needs via memos called business injections. The competition consisted of (10) Academic student teams from several colleges and universities around the southeastern region of the United States.

Each Competition Team was sequestered in their own rooms with their own network infrastructure to secure and defend. In addition, there were other teams known as the White, Gold, and Red Teams. The hackers were the Red Team composed of security professionals from various companies and backgrounds who tried to attack and exploit the network and computer operating systems of each of the Academic teams. The White team consisted of judges who scored the business injections during the competition. The Gold team facilitated overall management of all the competitors and the competition as well as tallying the overall scoring results.

While it was a lot of work, 8 hours straight on Day 1 of the competition and 12 hours straight on Day 2, it was definitely a lot of fun and a great learning experience. The competition was engineered to challenge each member's technical and business skills to which it unequivocally managed to succeed at doing just that. The biggest take away from this event was that anyone or any business organization that is charged with securing and defending a network or operating system infrastructure has a daunting task on their hands in fending off the plethora of cyber attacks that undoubtedly occur daily.

The Southern Poly Information Security Association (SPISA) strongly encourages anyone interested in this particular field to join us in learning more about cyber security and defense as well as help prepare the next SPSU Competition Teams to participate in future competitions. Anyone interested in joining SPISA or learning more about the SECCDC competitions can contact Dr. Pelstverger via email at speltsve@spsu.edu.
