Certified Disaster Recovery Engineer
Business Continuity and Disaster Response / Recovery is the process of preparing processes, policies, and procedures that follow in the event of a significant and unplanned operational disruption. The Certified Disaster Recovery Engineer training course prepares students for industry certification in Business Continuity planning and Disaster Recovery missions.
As businesses face a wide range of daily risks – including cyber-attacks, human error, technical failures, and natural disasters – it’s vital they create practical plans to sustain their security posture, financial health, and industry / brand reputation to maintain long-term success. Information Security personnel with proper training and practical knowledge in Disaster Response and Recovery planning can prove to be valuable assets to any organization with these goals. This course will provide students with 20 learning objectives supporting a knowledge base of industry best practices, and practical field training components to equip them to apply this knowledge in their own environment.
Certified Incident Handling Engineer
The Certified Incident Handling Engineer certification course is designed to help Incident Handlers, System Administrators, and Information Security professionals understand how to plan, create, and utilize their Incident Detection and Response systems to quickly and efficiently respond to potential threats. In the realm of information security incidents, it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when.” Preparation and preemptive training can make the difference between experiencing a security incident, and being subjected to a disastrous event.
Students will receive in-depth training to learn methodologies and exploits utilized by malicious actors, the latest attack vectors, and industry best practices for developing procedures and teams to safeguard against them. This course also provides numerous hands-on laboratory exercises that focus on topics such as reconnaissance, vulnerability assessments using Nessus, network sniffing, web application manipulation, malware identification and isolation, and scenarios for both Windows and Linux systems.
Certified Information Systems Security Manager
The Certified Information Systems Security Manager certification course provides students with the knowledge and industry best practices required to identify and analyze potential threats and risks posed to modern information systems. Given the wide range of technology-enabled components comprising modern security programs, the Information Security professional must be able to practically apply these skills within Administrative, Technological, and Operational contexts.
The course content is divided into five primary categories with which anyone in a security leadership position should have significant competency: Policy Development and Governance, Risk Management and Regulatory Compliance, Information Security Program Development and Management, Network Security Controls and Architecture, and Incident Handling and Response. Topics within these five categories will include 20 critical learning objectives. In addition, students will also be presented with information regarding Business Continuity and Disaster Response / Recovery.
Certified Information Systems Security Officer
The Certified Information Systems Security Officer certification course addresses a wide variety and range of industry best practices, experiential knowledge, and core information security competencies expected of every CISO or Security Manager.
