COMPUTER SECURITY TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL SPECIALISTS AND OTHER PERSONNEL ASSOCIATED WITH PREVENTING AND RESPONDING TO COMPUTER ATTACKS. IN: TERRORISM. REDUCING VULNERABILITIES AND IMPROVING RESPONSES. U.S.-RUSSIAN WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS.

The level of knowledge and skills required in the area of information security is among the basic factors determining the effectiveness of efforts to counter computer attacks on real targets. This chapter on computer security training is from a book that gathers papers and proceedings from workshops held between 2001 and 2003 of meetings of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the National Academies of Science (NAS, United States), focusing on reducing vulnerabilities and improving responses to terrorism. In this chapter, the authors review the characteristics of the information security personnel training system in Russia, define the basic areas of educational activity, and highlight the most promising of them, which are associated with continuing education. The authors also discuss the basic problems that need to be resolved in order to ensure that the necessary level of training is provided for specialists and other personnel at facilities where information technologies could be subject to computer attacks.
