Henderson, NV (PRWEB) May 10, 2010
The new release includes a range of new features to change the way information security professionals are able to attain training, as well as providing new functionality to make it easier for these professional get up to date training from wherever they are, whenever they want.
The Hacker Academy is now a premium membership community for beginner, intermediate and advanced information security professionals who want more than just traditional “on-line” training or recorded training. The content focuses on updated labs and fresh curriculum which will not only prepare members for numerous security certifications but will also give them ongoing access to some of the most innovative labs (new labs each month) which use the latest tools and will explore real world threats and security scenarios, all downloadable, easy to access and will greatly increase professional hacking and penetration testing knowledge.
The training being offered is designed to prepare students for a multitude of existing certifications that are found in the marketplace today. Each month, the curriculum is updated providing students with a new lesson learned including videos, slides, demonstrations and labs to be performed by the students on their own machines.
According to Aaron Cohen, Founder and Managing Partner, The Hacker Academy, “The training landscape has changed in our industry within the last few years and we have finally addressed the change. Budgets are tight and training is being crammed into short, outdated sessions. We feel The Hacker Academy has taken these issues into account and will allow any information security professional to become extremely good at what they do for a living across all industries, for a reasonable price and on an ongoing basis”. On-site classes will still be available which will allow organization to bring The Hacker Academy to them directly. With on-site classes, each student will receive a one year membership to the academy, at no extra cost.
There are several different options to become a member of The Hacker Academy which include a pay monthly as you go plan as well as a pay up front for the entire year option which provides for substantial discounts. In either scenario the pricing lands students at approximately $1000 for the entire year. It seems either of these memberships is a major cost savings from attending a traditional class and will tend to save upwards of $5,000 after all course fees, materials and travel expenses. Not only that, but the added benefit of a complimentary 12 month membership allows those students to continue their learning after the on-site course; something not found in traditional classroom training. This will allow students to save a good portion of their training budget and attend a couple of conferences and events throughout the year.
“We have worked extremely hard to develop the most up to date training available in the market today and we are committed to providing our members with impressive, ongoing training which will make them a more valuable asset to any organization”, according to Mike Murray, head of curriculum development and Managing Partner, The Hacker Academy.
The Hacker Academy is offering students the opportunity to become a member at a discounted rate if they sign up before the end of May and are directing people to http://www.thehackeracademy.com.
