I'd also be interested whenever you've got time to run one.  I'm actually 
taking a "Network Security & Cryptography" course at the moment, but I 
doubt that any one course could cover everything, and learning more would 
be awesome, since it's one of those things I feel guilty not knowing more 
about (particularly after "my" server got hacked -- I've always told the 
other admins that I was relying on them to do security while I dealt with 
other things, but that doesn't mean I want to have my head in the sand
