Operated under the auspices of The International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, over the next few months a series of ethical hacking training courses will be run around Australia.
Having trained representatives of organisations such as the Pentagon, US Military, Citibank, McAfee and American Express, EC-Council Australian Director Ravin Prasad said Australian organisations, particularly those that store any kind of sensitive or personal data, would benefit from these one-of-a-kind, practically-focussed 'boot camps'.
Having worked with governments and commercial organisations from 84 countries (at last count) the group is well-experienced in running such courses; note that all intending students must pass a security check prior to admission to the courses.
The three courses/qualifications are, "Certified Ethical Hacking," "Certified Security Analyst" and "Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator."
Each of these is a 5-day course.
A spokesperson for the organisers described the courses as follows:
CEH course ($3,700) - beneficial for security officers, auditors, site administrators and security professionals
CHFI course $3,700) - beneficial for police and law enforcement personnel, defence and military personnel, e-business security professionals, systems administrators, legal professionals, banking and insurance professionals, Government agencies and IT managers
ECSA course ($5,495) - beneficial for network server administrators, firewall administrators, security testers, system administrators and risk assessment professionals.
