This 1 day course will introduce you to the basic technical concepts behind the various stages of a hacking attack, as well as some common tools used by hackers and security professionals alike. Examples are drawn from real-world breaches to show how lapses in security have resulted in high-profile damage to organisations and customers.

Assuming no prior information security knowledge, the course is ideally suited to anyone requiring a high-level understanding of techniques and current trends used in hacking without the need for practical know-how.

This is a multimedia theory-based course with group discussions. Should there be time and interest, there is also the opportunity to join a guided 'hack lab', in which you can try your hand at some simple web application attacks (Wi-Fi enabled device required).

Delegates interested in more hands-on technical content should look at other supplier's courses such as CSTA and CSTP.
