This half-hour briefing will cover the following topics:

Event

Detecting and efficiently responding to incidents, especially those where critical resources are exposed to elevated risks is important for any organisation. This course is designed to share best practice in incident response, and provide hands on scenario-based activities to develop participants understanding and to enable them to apply this within their site.

Topics Covered

Event
The main objective of this course is to provide delegates with a basic understanding of computer network technologies and concepts. It will begin with an overview of different network types and how these fit together within Janet. It then moves on to consider different network models and how they can be applied. The course will then look at some of the physical aspects of networks and the protocols that make it all work. Finally after a review of basic network applications, delegates will be lead through a very practical review of some of the key issues associated with campus networking.
Event
Routers play a major role in any network and their effective configuration is vital in ensuring they run efficiently. The objective of this course is to provide a basic understanding of the configuration of network devices. Starting with the basics, this course will provide an overview of network devices and components. Delegates will have an opportunity to get hands-on experience in logging on to equipment and using configuration files. The course will look at the configuration of DHCP, NAT and PAT. Delegates will then work through some solutions to network security issues.
Event
The main aim of the course is to enabling organisations and staff to work lawfully, protect user privacy and run a professional system/network/service. This course provides an introduction to the privacy and legal issues most likely to arise where staff in educational organisations have elevated access permissions for shared networks, computers and applications, and the need for organisations to have, and staff to follow, policies and processes that take account of these. 
 

Topics Covered

Event

This course will provide a number of discussions and hands-on labs for delegates to work through individually and in small groups. It centres around the installation and configuration of a Shibboleth 2 Service Provider; along with guidance and practical experience of integrating this with a web application's access control mechanisms. This installation will then be tested against a reference Shibboleth 2 Identity Provider. The course includes some discussion of migration from an existing Shibboleth 1.3 installation.

Event

This course provides a supporting framework for University, College and Research staff that provide first line assistance for their organisation’s network infrastructure. The practical focus of this course is the use of a series of activities focusing on the key areas required to support the network. From configuration to diagnostics and a look at new technology, the activities should improve the reporting of incidents and identification of problems.
