This is a 3 days comprehensive and fast paced course that will take the perspective of the hacker and use that as a foundation for defending against future attacks.

EC-Council’s Rocket City TakeDownCon will not only provide the industry’s best training to those who are looking to increase their cyber security savvy, but it will also provide the most affordability to those who have been hit by the sequester or other budgetary concerns. Coming to Huntsville, Alabama this July, the 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 $2495. 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 speakers such as Adrian Crenshaw of, breakfast and lunch during the class and conference, and now 6 nights of complimentary hotel stay at the Westin Huntsville.

Advanced training classes are also available at the TakeDownCon. These 3-day courses range in topics from Advanced Penetration Testing, 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 for 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 run $1999 and also include the complimentary conference pass, breakfast and 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.
