An Introductory Lab for Information Security

Suzanna Schmeelk, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Columbia University


This talk presents an introductory lab for Information Security topics. The lab is designed as an introductory information security course to introduce cyber security and system administration concepts to novices of any age group. The talk is interlaced with practitioner advice from executing this lab multiple times with different age ranges in a corporate environment where we had less than an hour to introduce concepts to cyber security novices. The uniqueness of the lab is that it can be widened or narrowed to match time constraints and required topics.
