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.
