This course is definitely an eye opener. With how much social media has taken over, it is important to be fully aware of the capabilities along with all the risks it brings. It is important to get this course because social media is the new norm.

The Social Media and Security Training course offered by UKI is a great and beneficial course combining technical training to fully understand TCP IP networking, DNS, and the harms of malware and cross-site scripting; as well as practical training that allowed attendees to play with open source social intelligence gathering solutions. This is the perfect class for those involved in IT security and interested in social media and identity theft.

The Ransomware exercise is a customized, six-hour, live fire Cyber Range training exercise hosted on ACRE. This exercise is led by expert cyber security engineers and can be executed in a classroom as well as remotely. In this exercise, a ransomware-based attack (i.e., “WannaKry”) is launched via a malicious spear phishing originated compromise. This exercise includes a hands-on keyboard interface, which creates realistic technical training and management interaction opportunities. This exercise is not simulated – it is real malware, detonated in representative network enviroment. Participants are encouraged to view the attack as if it were happening to their institutions in real time, and asked to share what they have done or would do based on the facts provided. Such “range-based” exercises help institutions better understand the impact of an attack and prompt them to improve the ways in which their network defenders respond, communicate, request assistance, and recover from real-world cyber attacks. Institutions that have participated in this exercise have benefited directly by building greater interaction with their security community, as well as increasing capability maturity levels and resiliency across their specific customer sector.

The Cloud Leak exercise is a customized, six-hour, Cyber Range exercise hosted on ManTech’s ACRE® cyber range. This exercise is led by technical instructors and expert cybersecurity engineers and can accommodate 10 to 50 participants in a classroom or remotely. In this exercise, an attack on a cloud-hosted storage service is simulated. Participants are given the following scenario: A major media outlet has contacted bank.com media relations asking for a statement about the discovery that thousands of bank.com customer credit card numbers were obtained through a breach of a cloud storage service. Bank.com is unaware of any such breach. The CEO has requested an immediate investigation into the breach. Participants must determine how the cloud storage site was compromised and the extent of the intrusion, including the types of data exposed and any further infiltration of bank.com’s network. This exercise uses a hands-on keyboard approach to create realistic technical training and management interaction opportunities where participants respond to and report events as identified. Participants are encouraged to view the attack as if it were happening to their institutions in real time. Participants are asked to share what they have done or would do based on the facts provided.
