SEC440: 20 Critical Security Controls: Planning, Implementing and Auditing

A session at SANS South Africa - Cape Town 2012

  • Ted Demopoulos

Friday 26th October, 2012

9:00am to 5:00pm (SAST)

This course helps you master specific, proven techniques and tools needed to implement and audit the Top Twenty Most Critical Security Controls. These Top 20 Security Controls, listed below, are rapidly becoming accepted as the highest priority list of what must be done and proven before anything else at nearly all serious and sensitive organizations. These controls were selected and defined by the US military and other government and private organizations (including NSA, DHS, GAO, and many others) who are the most respected experts on how attacks actually work and what can be done to stop them. They defined these controls as their consensus for the best way to block the known attacks and the best way to help find and mitigate damage from the attacks that get through. For security professionals, the course enables you to see how to put the controls in place in your existing network though effective and widespread use of cost-effective automation. For auditors, CIOs, and risk officers, the course is the best way to understand how you will measure whether the Top 20 controls are effectively implemented. It closely reflects the Top 20 Critical Security Controls.

The Top 20 are listed below. You will find the full document describing the Top 20 Most Critical Security Controls posted at the the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

One of the best features of the course is that it uses offense to inform defense. In other words, you will learn about the actual attacks that you'll be stopping or mitigating. That makes the defenses very real, and it makes you a better security person.
