EC-Council ECSA Certification

- Only 5 Days
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.

This accelerated ECSA course fully prepares you for both the penetration test skills competency test and the ECSA v10 exam. The course also includes some of the self-study modules in order to give you training on as many topics as possible and give you more valuable penetration testing skills.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
