Overview

The goal of this 2 day accelerated course is to teach non-technical students the basic knowledge of Computer Security and Computer Networks so that they are aware of actual hacker frauds like Identity Theft, Viruses, Trojans and Phishing.

We will arm you with knowledge that can complement the system administrator's security safeguards and the chief security officer's security architecture for the corporation.

Those holding the EC Security5 Certificate have learned how to guard their own or their companies information assets.

Our Security5 Certification Program

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

9x Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Firebrand Training has again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year Award, from a Training Partner network that has more than 700 training centres across 107 countries. This extends a record-breaking run of successive awards to nine years.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said: “The annual EC-Council Awards highlights the commitment and achievements of our global partners and trainers that have contributed to the information security community.”
