Course Methodology

The course will include practical sessions, videos as well as live examples [e.g. Virus] and demonstrations of white and black hat hacking tools. All participants will also be provided with the latest research papers and articles.

As part of the course, participants will conduct a risk assessment of two different deployments based on the ISO27001 to identify any direct, or indirect threats, security exposures, or potentials for vulnerabilities. Participants will also respond to an example security incident and identify the best practices which could be applied to secure their own organization, and associated assets.
