About Advanced Security Training

About Advanced Security Training Courses

Regardless of how safe and secure any organization may think its IT infrastructure are, they realize that they are still not immune to information security threats. In addition to deploying the right tools and technology, organizations globally needs to develop a robust and competent workforce equipped with the necessary skills to adequately defend its IT infrastructures. These cyber defenders need not just basic training to sufficiently defend against mounting security threats, more than ever, they now require advanced security training. Information security professionals are required to stay up-to-date on the latest security technologies, threats and remediation strategies. While certification training may provide the baseline knowledge, security professionals must embark on advanced security training to acquire highly technical skills to defend against and mitigate the most vicious attacks.

Real-world Security

I had the fortune of having Tim as my instructor on my ECSA/LPT course. What a man, not only does Tim get through the necessary course work, but also teaches the latest techniques in the field. He arranged video conferences with some of the industry’s leading minds. Not many teachers go the extra mile, but Tim went further.

Validates and Supports Skills

This class provides an excellent framework to begin a career as a Professional Wireless Penetration Tester, or to add to your systems/networks defense knowledge.  Mr. Cardwell has given us a "complete approach" to penetration and defense:  showing us that in wireless networks, the wired side is as important (if not more) to ensure protection on as the wireless side.  This class was engaging, and Mr. Cardwell's vast experience certainly contributed to the value of the course.  I highly recommend this course and certification to anyone who has any wireless nodes on their network and also to those who want to make sure that none pop up, unexpectedly.

Increased Efficiency

He taught the basics of hacking databases. I was working light speed to keep up, but the pace and content were invigorating--and Joe was funny! He made the class easy to understand both from the technical perspective and the real world application. After class, I was able to take my experience and demonstrate these hacks with my colleagues at work. Seeing the ease with which these occur underscored our requirement to remediate these vulnerabilities in all our efforts. I continue to follow Joe and always find his LI links and comments valuable. Further, I know if I reach out to him with a question, he will be there. I cannot more highly recommend Joe and his team.

Increased Efficiency

Joe has been a very welcome addition to the Extreme Networks security team. He brings a level of security expertise, both technically and administratively that would take me years to duplicate. His extensive background in end systems penetration testing is unparalleled in my experience in this career field and is a demonstration of his technical ability.
