IT staff offered fast-track hacker course

Put yourself in the cyber-criminals’ shoes and protect your network from attack. IT professionals are being offered fast-track training in hacking skills as a means to combat cyber-attacks.

Robert Chapman, co-founder of The Training Camp, said: “This is about giving people inside your organisation the skills to carry out penetration testing on your behalf without having to hire an external consultancy.” The course is based on that of US training developer EC-Council. The Training Camp’s US arm has been offering a fast-track version for around four months and the company is running its first UK-based course early next month. Full Story
