Nevada businesses are ramping up efforts to improve information security for those who use credit and debit cards, the result of a law passed in the 2009 Nevada Legislature.
Western Nevada College, in cooperation with Information Privacy Professionals, will offer training to become a nationally certified Information Protection Manager that will be employable in the industry.
WNC Fallon campus will offer the first of three levels of non-credit classes to become an Information Protection Manager. Two 40-hour Level I IPS classes will be offered this fall:
IPS I Class (CMSV 094C F06 Call #30281) Meets Monday through Friday, 1-5 p.m., October 18-29, Rm. 302.
IPS I Class (CMSV 094C F07 Call # 39132) Meets Tuesday and Thursday, 6-9:30 p.m., October 19-December 2, Rm. 205.
If enrollment justifies, Level I training will be followed by the 40-hour Level II course - Information Protection Manager Auditor training; and by the 80-hour IPM Level III training. When successfully completed, these non-credit courses earn the student the Information Training Manager National Certification.
IPM training will be taught by Tom Considine, a Certified Privacy Professional. Considine hosts "WhoComplys," a weekly radio program about identity theft awareness, on KHWG radio. He is also a member of the Nevada Fight Fraud Taskforce, is CEO of Considine & Associates, and provides IPM training throughout the state. He can be contacted at www.TCIPP.com.
Cost of the Level I 40-hour training is $600. Registration continues through October 15. For more information, call Western Nevada College at 775-423-5186 or Tom Considine & Associates at 702-772-3492.
