Dive into an interactive environment and learn how to scan, test, and secure systems from hackers. Hands-on labs give in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Learn how perimeter defenses work and then scan and attack your own networks (no real network is harmed). Understand how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Study intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows, virus creation, and cloud computing. Build areas of mastery and focus your attention on subjects you need to gain proficiency by taking simulated assessments. Acquire familiarity with the exam questions and layout, and employ effective test-taking strategies as you experience the real exam scenario. Visit eccouncil.org for complete certification information.
