Overview

ESCA Official EC-Council Certified Security Analyst

On this accelerated five day EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) course, you’ll learn to specialise in penetration testing. This interactive and hands-on course utilises EC-Council iLabs, giving you the skills to conduct penetration tests simulating a real-world security environment. You’ll put these skills into context, learning how to use them to protect and defend your business.

The penetration testing skills you’ll learn apply to a wide variety of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments. Using Firebrand’s unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique your expert instructor will immerse you in learning the most up to date attack vectors like SQL injection, XSS, CSRF and DoS. Modules you’ll cover will include:

  • Vulnerability Analysis
  • SQL Penetration Testing Methodology
  • Database Penetration Testing Methodology
  • Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology

You’ll also be fully supported and coached in preparation for the ECSA exam which you’ll take on the final day of the course.

This ECSA course goes beyond the process of penetration testing, also teaching you how to complete a penetration testing report and to adopt the mind-set of a quality penetration tester – always curious to investigate and discover any potential security threat.

When you get ECSA (v10) certified, you can apply for CREST Practitioner Security Analyst (CPSA) qualification equivalency - meaning you get two certifications from just one course and exam.

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.”

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online ECSA courses
  2. You'll be ECSA certified in just 5 days. With us, you’ll be ECSA trained in record time
  3. Our ECSA course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass ECSA 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 ECSA 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 ECSA 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 76,239 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
