[vox] [Fwd: American Red Cross asks for tech help after HurricaneKatrina]

Given the recent discussion about the public workstations project, I thought people would find this interesting.

The American Red Cross needs help in areas that NewsBites readers know well.
SANS Internet Storm Center is leading the search for technically savvy
volunteers who can help in two ways - at the shelters in implementing
Windows and Cisco systems for the volunteers and people living there, and at
Red Cross headquarters in the Washington DC area to improve the
implementation of security software tools that have been implemented but are
not fully exploited. Here's how you can help.

1. People who live near the shelters (or who could get there and who have
family/friends with whom you could stay), and who have lots of experience
deploying Windows XP and/or Cisco systems, please register your willingness
to help at

The Red Cross will contact you directly.

2. People in the Washington DC area (or who could get here quickly) and
would volunteer to help, and who have substantial experience with any of the

-- tuning Cisco IDS
-- tuning NetIQ Manager
-- tuning McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

please do two things:
a. register at http://isc.sans.org/volunteers and b. send me an email at
paller@sans.org telling me which tool you know well and how available and
close you are so I can set up a contact for you.

SANS is also donating $100,000 to the Red Cross, and we learned today that
at least one leading security vendor, TippingPoint, has offered to give the
Red Cross the equipment they need to protect their networks - without asking
for compensation.

If you know of people or companies in the IT or security field who are
trying to make a difference in the recovery effort, please let us know what
you or they are doing (Email paller@sans.org).
