Course Description

SecureNinja's 5-DAY ECSS (EC-Council Certified Security Specialist) training and certification boot camp in Washington, DC, Dulles, VA, San Diego, and Live Online will enhance students skills-sets in three different areas:

  1. Information Security  
  2. Network Security  
  3. Computer Forensics

Information security plays a vital role in most of the organizations. Information security is a state of affairs where information, information processing, and communication are protected against the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information processing. In communications, information security also covers trustworthy authentication of messages that cover identification of the parties, verifying, and recording the approval and authorization of the information, non-alteration of the data, and the non-repudiation of the communication or stored data.

Network security plays a vital role in most of the organizations. It is the process of preventing and detecting the unauthorized use of your computer. It protects the networks and their services from unauthorized modification, destruction, or disclosure. Network security provides assurance that a network performs its critical functions correctly and there are no harmful side effects.

Computer forensics is the process of detecting hacking attacks and properly extracting evidence to report the crime and conduct audits to prevent future attacks. Computer forensics is the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. Computer forensics enables the systematic and careful identification of evidence in computer related crime and abuse cases.

The EC-Council Certified Security Specialist (ECSS) program is designed primarily for students of academic institutions. It covers the fundamental basics of information security, computer forensics, and network security. The program will give a holistic overview of the key components of information security. Students, who complete the ECSS program, will be equipped with the adequate foundation knowledge and should be able to progress onto the next level.
