Overview

Firebrand Training CompTIA Authorized Partner - SMSP

Learn how social networking channels pose massive risks to the security of your organisation. The Social Media Security Professional (SMSP) course teaches you the skills needed to anticipate attacks and protect your information from social media hackers.

As an SMSP you'll be able to respond quickly in the event of a breach and manage your organisation's social media security policies. You'll also learn about:

  • Social media definitions
  • Vulnerabilities and attack characteristics
  • Social media hosting platforms
  • Detection and protection strategies

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online SMSP courses
  2. You'll be SMSP certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be SMSP trained in record time
  3. Our SMSP course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass SMSP 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 SMSP 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 SMSP 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 75,933 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
