ETA International is committed to strengthening the nation’s cybersecurity workforce through industry-recognized and accredited professional certification. To develop a more resilient and capable cyber nation, there must be a highly-skilled cybersecurity workforce across industry and government. Effective cybersecurity workforce development begins with ETA’s Information Technology Security (ITS) credential, which incorporates the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cybersecurity standards into the certification competencies.
Presented at Education Forum by Charles Brooks, eITPrep LLP Managing Director and Educational Technologies Group Vice President, the ITS three-day workshop will prepare attendees to challenge the new ITS certification exam from ETA International. Each exam domain will be unpacked to provide the attendee with a complete defense strategy for implementing cybersecurity solutions to any network environment - including wireless networks. They also will be made aware of attack vectors, tools and techniques used to pen test network computing environments.
After completing this course, the student will be able to have an in-depth understanding of all ITS domains:
- Achieve a deep understanding of hardware and network security software
- Comprehend security in relation to wireless networks
- Grasp the basic understanding of device security such as Bluetooth and IoT
- A detailed understanding of software exploitation and vulnerabilities
- Develop a clear understanding of operational polices, standards, and risk assessment
- Understand disaster recovery and computer forensics
- Recognize the fundamentals of cryptography and its relationship with IT infrastructure
- Distinguish social engineering attacks and countermeasures in depth
As cyber threats continue to evolve, the nation’s protection against them relies on a steady stream of qualified cybersecurity professionals entering the workforce. Training is essential to prepare the cybersecurity workforce of tomorrow, and for keeping current cybersecurity workers up-to-date on skills and evolving threats. These professionals are critical in both private industry and the government for the security of individuals and the nation.
Students must bring a laptop or tablet to the class. ITS training will be offered Wednesday through Friday, March 7-9, 2018 at a cost of $949. Early bird discounts are available, so sign up today.
