TRANSITS provides state of the art, high-quality training to Computer Security and Incident Response Team (CSIRT) personnel, as well as individuals with a bona-fide interest in establishing a CSIRT.
Our 2018 event benefitted 34 trainees from South African universities and Science/research councils, and the feedback was very positive, so we're doing it again!
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.
Other topics such as PGP keys and relevant RFCs are also covered during the course.
