Overview

On this 4-day accelerated Mobile Device Security Analyst (GMOB) course, you'll learn to properly secure mobile devices accessing vital information in your organisation.

Mobile devices increasingly have access to sensitive data. This, in combination with their limited security, means mobile devices are often an enticing target for attackers.

A Mobile Device Security Analyst will understand and apply security policies in a mobile environment, as well as:

  • Test for and mitigate against common vulnerabilities and threats to mobile applications
  • Understand the common methods used to attack mobile devices, including jailbreaking, rooting, sidejacking and web app attacks
  • Use common techniques to protect mobile devices, including configuration management and encryption

Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review approach combines both theoretical knowledge with practical, hands-on tasks. This technique ensures you'll learn faster and develop the competence to put your new skills into practice when you return to work.

On this course, you'll be prepared for the GIAC Mobile Device Security Analyst (GMOB) exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This course is aimed at security personnel involved in assessing mobile devices to find security weaknesses. The ideal candidate will have up-to-date technical knowledge and a thorough understanding of mobile device penetration testing.

This course provides knowledge equivalent to the SANS SEC575: Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online GMOB courses
  2. You'll be GMOB certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be GMOB trained in record time
  3. Our GMOB course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass GMOB first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn GMOB faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying GMOB with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 77115 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
