What

The goal of this 2 day accelerated course is to teach non-technical students the basic knowledge of Computer Security and Computer Networks so that they are aware of actual hacker frauds like Identity Theft, Viruses, Trojans and Phishing.

We will arm you with knowledge that can complement the system administrator's security safeguards and the chief security officer's security architecture for the corporation.

Those holding the EC Security5 Certificate have learned how to guard their own or their companies information assets.

Our Security5 Certification Program

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

"Having just completed a week of intense but enjoyable training, for the EC Councils Certified Ethical Hacker v9 at Firebrand Training Ltds Wyboston Lakes facilities and passed the exam on the final day. I can thoroughly recommend the company, facilities, support staff and World Class Instructors at firebrand. I successfully studied and completed my ISC2 CCSP there previously and once again the overall package could not have been bettered anywhere. I have recently experience training with another very well known supplier and frankly Firebrand is in a totally different league with every regard. If you want to obtain IT or Cyber certifications then I suggest you train with the best at Firebrand Wyboston Lakes. I shall be recommending to my colleagues, that they don't even consider this type of training elsewhere. I cant recommend them highly enough. Thanks again Firebrand."
