St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 16, 2011
With recent news of HBGary Federal being hacked by “Anonymous” based on their intent to sell names, addresses and other data to the FBI regarding those who attacked companies cutting off WikiLeaks funding, the ever-growing fear of being hacked is forcing companies to reevaluate their information security.
Hacker University is an information security training center whose instructors are hackers. These ethical hackers live by the motto, “In order to beat a hacker, you have to think like one.” As a result, instructors educate IT professionals on the various ways hackers access networks via humans (social engineering) and technology, uncover the mindset of hackers and even demonstrate how everyday situations become security breaches by sharing their own stories of ways they hacked “secure” businesses that hired them to test their security.
Because Hacker University’s information security training skills are unmatched, Hacker U was invited by EC-Council, the leading international certification body in information security, to participate in the Global Launch of CEH v7. Certified Ethical Hacker version 7 is the most advanced information security and ethical hacking training program in the world which is not yet publicly available. Out of 450 global training centers nominated, 25 were selected worldwide including 8 within the United States – making Hacker U the only one in the St. Louis, Missouri region and surrounding states.
Hacker University’s Global Launch instructor and co-owner, Dave Chronister, is thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary event. “CEH version 7 breaks away from its earlier releases with more emphasis on techniques and methodologies hackers use to carry out attacks but more importantly, it provides countermeasures to better protect your corporation’s networks from malicious attacks. Students walk away with the knowledge and tools to implement effective offensive security measures immediately.”
Chronister also “trained the trainers” for CEH v7, authored questions for the certification exam, is an EC-Council appointed CEH v7 instructor as well as CEH v7 certified and a professional hacker for Hacker U’s parent company, Parameter Security. He is recipient of the 2010 EC-Council Award “Instructor, Circle of Excellence” and was recently recognized at Hacker Halted USA.
Only fifteen IT professionals will be allowed to attend this exclusive, cutting-edge class the week of March 14, 2011 in St. Louis – becoming one of the world’s first CEH v7 certified professionals. These 15 lucky students receive a Netbook complete with class materials pre-loaded to keep; hard-copy commemorative 4-color courseware with study guides, labs and practice exams; breakfast, lunch and snacks each day; exam proctoring on the last day of class; free “second pass” voucher; commemorative metal plated certification of attendance with unique individual ID; VIP access to EC-Council’s Hacker Halted & TakeDownCon conferences; lifetime membership to Hacker University, celebratory CEH v7 VIP Global Launch Reception and much more.
