Nowadays it's necessary to improve your knowledge about Cyber Security. The course is ideal for starting a career in IT security. If you are looking to build a stellar and elite career in IT security, you should pursue this course. It is one of the most demanded skill in current IT industry.
The demand for professionals with cybersecurity expertise is demanding and ever growing with time. The need for cyber-literate professionals is multifaceted and crosses a lot of fields. The world need more than 5 Million cyber security professionals by 2020, out of which 1 Million are needed in India alone. From fresh engineering graduates to information technology professionals all are required to possess basic understanding of cyber security operations, as well as to do the hands-on work.
The Information Security Certified Professional Certification is a knowledge-based certificate intended especially for students and entry-level experts IT professionals, and those looking to make a profession in cybersecurity. It involves instructor led training as well as integrated lab sessions to develop hands-on experience of the trainees. It also has clear chapter organisation which enables the trainees to sequentially learn the concepts of cyber security.
Any technical graduate or entry-level IT professional looking to make a career in cybersecurity can enroll for the ISCP certification course.
It takes approximately 80 hours to complete the ISCP certification course. You can plan the lecture schedule as per your convenience and the schedule of the training institute.
Kratikal Academy is exclusively positioned to provide education and training that respond to the state’s need for qualified technical professionals in the cyber security field. We have tie-ups with premier educational institutes, industry consortiums and vocational educational institutes, which are a testimony to our quality.
Cyber security is a field which is ever changing. So you need to continuously upgrade your skills to prove your worth. The certificate is valid for 3 years from the date of issue. However, after expiration, you can simply retake the examination.
You can directly take the certification exam. You may enroll for the certification examination by paying the examination fees. However, the success rate of such candidates is very low. Thus, it is advised to attend the course before attempting the certification.
The course fees includes the following charges: Training charges, study material cost, lifetime student portal access, video lectures, cost of DVD toolkit, examination fees, certification fees and government taxes as applicable.
If you fail the certification examination, it is a clear indication that you still need to work on your skills. You can thus reappear for a second attempt of the exam. However there needs to be a cool-off period of atleast 4 weeks between the two attempts. If you fail the second attempt, you need to pay the examination fees, before appearing for a third time.
The increasing reliance of our information age economies and governments on cyber (computer-based) infrastructure makes them progressively more vulnerable to cyber attacks on our computer systems, networks and data. In their most disruptive form, cyber attacks target the enterprise, government, military, or other infrastructural assets of a nation or its citizens. Both the volume and sophistication of cyber threats (cyber warfare, cyber terrorism, cyber espionage and malicious hacking) are monotonically increasing, and pose potent threats to our enterprise, government, military, or other infrastructural assets. Knowing that to be forewarned is to be forearmed, we are well advised to effect strong Cybersecurity defenses that will thwart rapidly evolving cyber threats. Recent newsworthy cyber attacks on critical cyber infrastructure (e.g., Target data breach, Mt. Gox bitcoin hacker attacks, NSA data leaks and subsequent PRISM revelations) demonstrate the urgent need for improved cybersecurity. As cyber threats grow, so must our abilities to neutralize them. Towards that end the U.S. government issued an Executive Order for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity in February 2013, and the 2014 President's Budget devotes over $13B to cyber-related programs and activities [Federal Information Technology FY 2014 Budget Priorities, p. 15]. The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) lists all known public documents of National Cyber Security Strategies in the EU as well as the rest of the world.
The best way to learn cybersecurity, as well as other technologies, is to combine the best of theory (principles and) with hands-on best practices. If you don't have ready access to a cybersecurity guru, check out the cybersecurity training services on the Cybersecurity Training page of this web.
Abacode believes in being Cyber-SMART: using self-governance, monitoring, assessments, remediation, and training to combat cyber threats. Without utilizing these five components, you create a vulnerability within your company that makes the company responsible for breaches, not the hackers. Just as job training is necessary to ensure that employees are prepared to take on their duties, cybersecurity training is necessary to ensure that employees are aware of the risks and consequences of not putting the proper safeguards in place.
Our program combines technical and human components with comprehensive training in the following areas: – Identification and detection of malware and ransomware – Common social engineering tactics – Workplace information security and prevention of internal and external breaches – Email security procedures and hard-to-crack password guidelines – Phishing and Spear Phishing detection awareness and education – Social Media threats – Disaster recovery/business stabilization and continuity
Cyber security technologies and processes are most effective when organizations diligently practice good cyber hygiene habits while concurrently checking their cyber defence vulnerabilities defences via aggressive white hat" (a.k.a. "ethical hacking") Penetration Testing ("pen testing").
  • A penetration test is an interactive security test undertaken to identify security vulnerabilities that are actually exploitable.

  • A penetration test is different from a vulnerability scan. A vulnerability scan is automated and is entirely software. A penetration test is conducted by trained, qualified professionals, and uses human interaction and human ingenuity to discover flaws that automated tools often miss.

  • Penetration testing is conducted from two primary viewpoints: external and internal. An external viewpoint is in the public IP address space. A test of the server hosting this page, from where you are, would be from an external viewpoint. An internal viewpoint requires testing from inside an organization's private network.

  • There are many types of penetration tests, including network penetration tests and host configuration tests, web application penetration tests, wireless network penetration tests, client-server application penetration tests, mobile device penetration tests, and social engineering, to name a few.

  • All penetration testing performed by High Bit Security is done by certified information security professionals.
  • Prior to contracting for breach insurance
  • Notice viruses, malware, spyware on workstations
  • After implementing significant changes in website or network
  • Unauthorized traffic on network noted
  • Security audit for HIPAA or PCI-DSS
  • After installing new software or other upgrades
  • Prior to submission of application for breach insurance
  • If you store valuable data and have never had one
Testing the network layer (firewalls, web servers, email servers, FTP servers, etc.); the application layer (all major development languages, all major web servers, all major operating systems, all major browsers); wireless systems; internal workstations, printers, fax machines; WAR dialing phone numbers, virtual environments including cloud, internet enabled devices, and more. We have tested law enforcement systems, state and municipal government systems, and private sector systems ranging from online gaming to financial institutions.
All of our penetration testing engineers hold industry recognized certifications, such as GSEC, GWAPT, GPEN or CEH. In addition, we also ensure that all of our penetration testers have strong web development backgrounds (often coupled with additional coding backgrounds), as well as networking experience. Our penetration testers are US citizens, and undergo a thorough background check.
Vulnerability scans leverage preconfigured pattern recognition, so there are many aspects of a system that will not be scanned completely. Some will not be scanned at all. Penetration testing provides coverage for large number and variety of serious security faults that scanners are incapable of finding and testing.
Our engineers have thousands of hours of penetration testing experience, and decades of security background.
Our penetration testing methodology is specifically designed to mitigate data loss, downtime and risks to our customers. In cases where exploiting a vulnerability carries a risk to the system, we will document the vulnerability, and report it to the client, but will not pursue the exploit unless our customer asks us to do so.
If devices will be shipped to your location or testers will be visiting with laptops, ensure that disk-based encryption is being used to protect data obtained during the test. When it’s time to deliver the final report, your tester should also offer a secure method for its delivery. Confidential data, including test reports, should never be sent via email; secure FTPs or secure file-sharing sites that use SSL should be employed.
Vulnerability assessments are performed by using an off-the-shelf software package, such as Nessus or OpenVas to scan an IP address or range of IP addresses for known vulnerabilities. For example, the software has signatures for the Heartbleed bug or missing Apache web server patches and will alert if found. The software then produces a report that lists out found vulnerabilities and (depending on the software and options selected) will give an indication of the severity of the vulnerability and basic remediation steps. Many “professional penetration testers” will actually just run a vulnerability scan, package up the report in a nice, pretty bow and call it a day. Nope – this is only a first step in a penetration test. A good penetration tester takes the output of a network scan or a vulnerability assessment and takes it to 11 – they probe an open port and see what can be exploited. Penetration tests can be performed using automated tools, such as Metasploit, but veteran testers will write their own exploits from scratch.
