The EC-Council Centre of Advanced Security Training (CAST) has arrived at Firebrand Training. The six intensive three-day courses are aimed at very experienced students, who have probably already gained EC-Council certifications.
CAST courses are developed by EC-Council in collaboration with subject-matter experts and industry practitioners. All of the courses will be delivered by EC-Council Master Trainers, who are also the course authors. The courses are up-to 80% lab – meaning that they are very hands-on. The courses don't include an exam, but the student will become CAST certified.
Students will learn how to attack and defend highly-secure environments. They’ll be taught how to attack operating systems such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and the latest Linux servers.
Students will be equipped with the knowledge and practical skills for performing mobile forensic investigations. The course is based on vendor-neutral digital forensic principals; with a focus on Apple, Google Android, and Blackberry devices.
Once the student learns how to attack, they must also learn the best practices and methodologies to secure the environment. They will learn how to reduce the effectiveness of the advanced persistent threat.
