Cloud Security Fundamentals & FedRAMP

by Intrinsec Security

Trainer: Graham Thompson

Duration: 3 days, November 6th-8th, 2017

Intrinsec's Cloud Security Fundamentals - COUNTERMEASURE Edition training seminar is a three-day cloud security knowledge course which provides students with foundational knowledge focusing on the relationship between cloud computing and cloud security, while also introducing some of the best practices commonly utilized by companies who are actively assessing cloud technologies.

More specifically, students who register for this course will spend much of the session analyzing governance challenges ranging from jurisdictional issues, vendor selection and assessing the outsourcing chain through investigating the various compliance standards often used by cloud service providers. Cloud Security Fundamentals will eventually conclude with a high-level discussion regarding the available technologies and tools that can be used to streamline IT and address security issues with cloud computing.

Exclusive to COUNTERMEASURE, this edition also addresses the FedRAMP cloud program that leverages the NIST 800-53 security controls. Students will learn how the FedRAMP program is used to assess cloud service providers and how the Authority To Operate (ATO) operates through the implementation of a 3rd Party Assessor program.

The Exploit Laboratory: Introduction To Exploit Development

by Net-Square Solutions Pvt. Ltd.

Trainer: Saumil Udayan Shah

Duration: 3 days, November 6th-8th, 2017

The Exploit Laboratory returns to COUNTERMEASURE in 2017. This is an introductory to intermediate level class specially designed for a 3-day format. The class begins with an overview of memory corruption, stack overflows, and other core concepts. The class then moves on to use-after-free bugs and vtable overwrites, especially applicable to browser and PDF exploits. The course will spend time focusing on defeating modern day exploit mitigation techniques like DEP and ASLR using Return Oriented Programming (ROP).

The Exploit Laboratory requires a lot of hands on work. Lab examples used in this class cover Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms, featuring popular third party applications and products instead of simulated lab exercises.

We end the class with a mini "Capture The Flag" contest where you shall put your newly acquired exploit writing skills to the test in a near-real-world environment.

All topics are delivered in a down-to-earth, learn-by-example methodology. The same trainers who brought you The Exploit Laboratory for over ten years have been working hard in putting together advanced material based on past feedback.
