But I’m NOT talking about the IRS or Benghazi, I’m talking about high tech and the final approval of the US Department of Defense (DoD) of the iPhone! Android had been previously cleared. Unfortunately, bring your own device (BYOD) is still NOT secure enough for defense work…

PRLog (Press Release) – Jan. 11, 2013 – January 11, 2013 — Silicon Valley, CA. — In an effort to address the need for certified computer security professionals, Megamind announced today two intensive computer security training boot camps to be offered at client sites globally, and publicly in various cities within the U.S. in 2013 (including: San Jose, CA; Washington, DC; Dallas, TX; and Chicago, IL). These intensive training boot camps will enable attendees to gain a solid foundation in computer security, and prepare them to take the associated certification examinations.

Megamind’s intensive trainings really deserve the label of “Boot Camp” as they provide an accelerated learning environment, where skills are put to use immediately.

Certified Information Security Manager (CISM®) Intensive Certification Prep Boot Camp Training

CISM® defines the core competencies and international standards of performance that professional information security managers are expected to master. It provides executive management with the assurance that those who have earned their CISM® have the experience and knowledge to offer effective business-oriented security management and advice.

Megamind’s 5-day CISM® Boot Camp is taught by international security expert Krag Brotby, principal author and editor of the official ISACA CISM® Review manual since 2005. This training provides an intense environment in which participants can acquire, thoroughly and properly, the skills and knowledge expected of a world-class information security manager. In the process the course provides outstanding preparation for the CISM® exam.

This 5-day intensive boot camp is structured to follow the CISM® review manual and examination flow. Whether preparing for the CISM® exam or providing training to ensure a standard and comprehensive proficiency baseline for information security, this intensive five-day boot camp provides the skills and knowledge of the core competencies required by the successful information security manager.

Certified Information Security Manager (CISM®) is an advanced certification for experienced professionals in the field of information security, looking to advance their career into mid-level and senior-level management positions. A CISM® certificate exam validates an individual’s management skills and knowledge of large, enterprise-level information security handling. It has been accredited by the ANSI and requires at least 5 years of work experience in IT security.

The average salary for the CISM® is $117,500+ (depending upon location and company).

Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) Intensive Certification Prep Boot Camp Training

CISSP® is fast becoming the mandatory certification for mid to senior-level security managers working in the field of Information Security. It specifically focuses on information and network security, and provides a solid foundation on IT security.

Megamind’s CISSP® Boot Camp is an intensive 5-day management-level computer security boot camp training that teaches attendees how to plan, design, administer, and troubleshoot security systems to effectively protect their company’s data in the constantly changing, challenging world of computer networks and information systems.

Through ten CISSP® modules, including security theory and applications, attendees gain a deeper knowledge of information systems security, as well as being prepared for the CISSP® certification exam — one of the most respected vendor-neutral certifications in the IT security field.

Candidates interested in taking the exam must possess a minimum of five years of direct full-time security work experience in two or more of the 10 information security domains (CBK), and agree to abide by their codes-of-ethics and policy for continuous education. In addition, they need to pass the exam with a scaled score of 700 points or greater out of 1000 possible points.

Security flaw for the Galaxy SIII

10:21 AM (8 hours ago)

to me
Did you see the security flaw for the Galaxy SIII? There is a phone number that you can call to wipe your phone. iOS has something similar (it’s not a phone number but pretty much the same functionality).
The only thing is that the phone (I guess, a Samsung move, I don’t think that any other Android is doing that) doesn’t ask for confirmation!
So basically :
the USSD code to factory data reset a Galaxy S3 is *2767*3855# can be triggered from browser like this: <frame src=”tel:*2767*3855%23″ />.
You can call that phone number in your webpage, the phone won’t ask and wipe your phone! It’s pretty much everywhere on Twitter right now, didn’t find any video to prove this
Have a good day!
