Through simulation, DHS/Idaho National Laboratory hack into a company’s systems and finds vulnerabilities while the company attempts to combat the hack

After the string of hacks that occurred throughout 2011, such as those launched against SonyFox News, and the CIA, the U.S. government isn’t taking any chances anymore.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now offering network security training programs for companies that want a firmer grasp on what to do when a hack occurs on their systems.

The DHS, which has partnered with the Idaho National Laboratory for these training programs, conducts weeklong, 12-hour sessions in Idaho Falls, Idaho about once a month to help companies learn how to combat hackers.
