EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

The training effort consists of a survey of existing system-level, computer-security courses.

Information gathering: The first step was to gather as much information about different organizations offering courses in computer security. More than 150 organizations were reviewed.

We were able to further narrow down the list to 55 by weeding them out due to courses offered in too specific areas (i.e. system specific) and length of courses (i.e. university/technical school – full-term courses). Out of these 55 organizations we selected 9 to further survey existing system- level courses, determine which areas are already suitable for a law-enforcement audience.

On the following page you will find a matrix for the 9 organizations selected for further investigation.
