Regardless of how safe and secure any organization may think its IT infrastructure are, they realize that they are still not immune to information security threats. In addition to deploying the right tools and technology, organizations globally needs to develop a robust and competent workforce equipped with the necessary skills to adequately defend its IT infrastructures. These cyber defenders need not just basic training to sufficiently defend against mounting security threats, more than ever, they now require advanced security training. Information security professionals are required to stay up-to-date on the latest security technologies, threats and remediation strategies. While certification training may provide the baseline knowledge, security professionals must embark on advanced security training to acquire highly technical skills to defend against and mitigate the most vicious attacks. Such advanced security training are designed to equip IT security professionals with the most advanced security skills required to safeguard the integrity of the IT infrastructures of their organization.
EC-Council’s Center for Advanced Security Training (CAST) was created to address the need for highly technical and advanced security training for information security professionals. CAST programs stand out from others thorough their extreme hands-on approach. These highly technical, lab intensive advanced security training courses will allow a participant to combat real life scenarios.
CAST programs are designed and developed by EC-Council in collaboration with well-respected subject-matter experts and industry practitioners. All of these advanced security training courses will only conducted by appointed EC-Council Master Trainers, some of whom are authors of the respective courses. Theories are limited to the bare essentials, and the bulk of the training session will be focused on a participant’s individualized involvement in “getting their hands dirty”. CAST will offer information security programs that will cover important domains such as advanced penetration testing training, malware analysis, advanced social engineering, cryptography, digital forensics deep dive, web application security, among others.
