HEXID SNOW - Hacking Explained and Intrusion Detection (5d.)


How to protect yourself in the post-Snowden era? Just say no to intrusion and breaches

According to Forrester at least 60% of enterprises will discover a breach of sensitive data this year. By 2018, Gartner predicts even the first cyber-murder through the remote hacking of a wireless medical device. In five days we teach you how to say no to hacking. We’ll explain different concepts (MiTM, Botnets, DDoS ...) and guide you through classic attack scenarios and tools. The course comes with extensive labs and a detailed handout, which is available in electronic format.

Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion allowing them to gain Continuing Professional Credits (CPEs). Those credits can be submitted for GIAC or ISC2 certification renewal. The most well-known ISC2 certification is the CISSP certification (Certified Information Systems Security Professional).

If you are unfamiliar with Linux command line essentials and/or security concepts, it is advised to attend at least the "PIA Linux in a nutshell (1d.)" and/or one of our cyber security introduction security classes in order to benefit from the HEXID class.
