PSNC Security Team, besides attending IT security conferences, organizes trainings at the PSNC headquarters as well. There are two main paths of training:

  • Supercomputing Department training - Supercomputing Department (Polish abbreviation KDM) is the PSNC department that PSNC Security Team is a part of. Trainings are free of charge and intended to extend KDM users knowledge. Apart of the parallel processing, IT security is the most common covered subject.
  • MIC training program - a part of Microsoft Innovation Center project activity. The trainings are free of charge as well and are organized on two separate paths: those strictly oriented with IT security and those associated with interoperability (mainly discussing security level of heterogeneous IT environments).

PSNC Security Team gives occasional trainings for Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center employees as well as for participants of projects PSNC is taking part in.

Average number of trainings during a year is 8-10. For more information see Supercomputing Department training page (in Polish) and MIC security training webpage.

Here is a list of trainings from past years. Most of the materials are prepared especially for users with average IT knowledge so we encourage everyone to download:
