... just because budgets are tight, that doesn't mean there has been a slow down on the demand for trained information security experts.

EC-Council Foundation’s Rocket City TakeDownCon will not only provide the industry’s best training to those government personnel who are looking to increase their cyber security savvy, but the event also provides the most affordability. By offering a scholarship opportunity to information security professionals working for the US government, EC-Council Foundation hopes to ease the burden on those government branches that are hard hit by funding shortfalls. EC-Council Foundation recognizes that just because budgets are tight, that doesn't mean there has been a slow down on the demand for trained information security experts. Coming to Huntsville, Alabama, IT Security Conference Rocket City TakeDownCon offers EC-Council’s flagship certification, the Certified Ethical Hacker, as well as their Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator and Certified Security Analyst for $2,499 for government employees. This rate is currently the most value for the least investment on the market. Included in the price is the exam voucher, complimentary conference pass to attend the conference with notable addresses from some of the top industry leaders, morning and afternoon break food, lunch during the class and conference, and 6 nights of complimentary hotel stay.

Advanced training classes are also available at the TakeDownCon. These 3-day courses range in topics from Securing Windows Infrastructure, Mobile Hacking and Forensics, and Advanced Network Defense. When asked about the Advanced Network Defense (CAST 614), Kevin Cardwell, instructor/author says, “This is a 3 day comprehensive and fast paced course that will take the perspective of the ‘hacker’, and use that as a foundation of defending against future attacks. It is certainly fun being on the offense executing the actual hacking and penetration testing, but when it comes to reality most of us have to play roles requiring a solid defense.”

The advanced training courses are $1,999 and also include the complimentary Conference Pass, morning and afternoon break food, lunch during the class and conference, and 5 nights of complimentary hotel stay.

All courses offered at The Rocket City TakeDownCon come with Certificates of Attendance so that attendees can apply the event to their continuing education credits, necessary to keep up most certifications. Time spent at the conference results in 1 continuing education credit per hour of attendance.
