IRVINE, Calif. - Foundstone Inc., a computer security training and consulting company, today announced a new series of computer security classes, Ultimate NT/2000 Security: Hands On.

The classes will teach how to combat security threats to Windows NT and Windows 2000 systems.

The first class will be held in New York City on 10 October, with an additional class scheduled for New York in December.

Participants will learn security techniques from a hacker's perspective, assessing architectural vulnerabilities and deploying countermeasures.

Topics covered will include "Password Cracking", "Buffer Overflow Attacks", "Gaining Command-Line Access" and "Registry Manipulation".

"These classes are not your standard 'here's how you implement Microsoft recommended security,'" said Will Chan, VP of training for Foundstone. "We teach security from the mindset of a hacker. We show how to best find vulnerabilities in your Windows network and then how to secure your network from these vulnerabilities."

"Extensive hands-on experience is the most valuable part of our classes," said George Kurtz, CEO of Foundstone. "With an individual dual-boot laptop and a lab network of Windows servers and domains acting as a test and attack environment, students learn real-world security techniques they can apply in their organizations."
