Dear beneficiaries,

SANReN are pleased to announce that we'll again be hosting TRANSITS I training at the 2019 CHPC Conference following a very successful event last year! This is a training event for Computer Security and Incident Response Team (CSIRT) personnel, as well as individuals with a bona-fide interest in establishing a CSIRT.

"TRANSITS I is aimed at new or potential CSIRT personnel who wish to gain a solid understanding of the main aspects of working in an incident handling and response team. TRANSITS I offers participants a unique opportunity to mix with their peers and discuss security issues in a secured and trusted environment, whilst being tutored by seasoned experts of the European CSIRT community. It offers experience and expertise in Operational, Organisational, Legal and Technical areas which form the knowledge basis of CSIRT personnel."

Dates: 2-4 December 2019 (3 full days)

Venue: Birchwood Hotel & OR Tambo Conference Centre, Boksburg

Venue and training sponsored by SANReN (excl. accommodation and travel [if required]) - valued at R7500pp.

Places available: 30 (one per institution; multiple applications allowed - vetting process with possible seconds)

*Note that this training is only open to SANReN beneficiaries / TENET

Apply here (also for more information):

Closing date for applications: 15 October 2019

Looking forward to having you (/your IT security staff) join us and benefit!

PS we aim to run TRANSITS II next year - which is more technical and hands-on for those who have already completed/will complete TRANSITS I.
