Resources

This material is presented in person, quarterly,  (and more often during October Cybersecurity Month) at the Jefferson Parish Libraries, Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.  The speakers are several of the Information System Security Professionals of the Greater New Orleans  chapter of ISACA.  Check the Jefferson Parish Public Library website:  http://www.jefferson.lib.la.us/ for future classes scheduled there.  You can also call and ask for additional sessions.

The New Orleans PC Club is another resource for individuals wanting to learn more about computer resources and the tools mentioned in the course.  They can answer individual questions both through this blog and at their NOPC meetings. http://www.nopc.org/.  The NOPC meets several times a month and they are a resource to learn  specific computer skills like installing programs, hardware questions or learning to use security tools.
