Got an email from Global Knowledge Associates Philippines, which will be conducting a Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course from January 28 to February 25, 2006 (Saturdays), leading to the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.
This class will immerse the student into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. The lab intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be lead into scanning and attacking their own networks, no real network is harmed. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. When a student leaves this intensive 5 day class they will have hands on understanding and experience in Ethical Hacking.
I’ve been meaning to take up courses on CEH, but they’re just so darned expensive (unless a company will sponsor my signing up). Fee for this particular seminar is PhP 54,000 (US$ 1,000, and inclusive of “free” US$ 300 exam fee).
If you’re interested, get in touch with Sandra Medalla of GNA at (632) 637-3657 / 683-0969 or via email [email protected] .
