The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is proud to present the second offering of the cybersecurity hands-on event, Preventing Web and Email Server Attacks Cyber Range Training (IR205) on Thursday, April 13, 2023 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT. The 200-level training events are open to government employees and contractors across Federal, State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial government, educational partners, and critical infrastructure partners (https://www.cisa.gov/topics/critical-infrastructure-security-and-resilience/critical-infrastructure-sectors). Please use your organization email address when registering.

Participants will be introduced to common web and email vulnerabilities, as well as the technologies of encryption and authentication to enhance web and email security. This course uses active participation to facilitate realistic technical training and interaction opportunities for learners.

Experience these benefits and more:

•  Practice in a realistic environment: Analyze network and host-

   based artifacts and implement remediation changes for the

   identified vulnerabilities.

•  Learn how to implement CISA guidance: Course exercises

   include implementation of the recommendations in BOD 18-01.

•  Identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in real time: Students will

   identify common web and email vulnerabilities and mitigate them

   by reconfiguring the web server and DNS settings.

•  Expert facilitation and peer discussion: Throughout the course,

   expert cybersecurity engineers will moderate discussion and

   conduct a recovery debrief for the exercises. Participants are also

   encouraged to help one another and address peer questions.

This exercise is a step-by-step, facilitated experience that uses a keyboard approach to understand these topics in a realistic technical environment.

This course is ideal for those working in cybersecurity roles who are interested in learning technical incident response skills and requires active engagement from all participants. The course assumes a mixed audience (e.g., from disparate teams and organizations) of mixed capability.

Approved registrants must attend a mandatory student technical check the day before the training to establish a connection to the course content and lab environment.
