In today’s world hacking attempts are an ever growing form of attack. All of us can remember a suspicious email or pop up on our computer that raised our attention. The frightening part is that computer hackers are getting so skilled, many of these attacks occur without the user even realizing. Just keeping an “eye-out” for these attacks doesn’t cut it anymore. All computer users need a thorough training program to learn how these attempts occur and most importantly, how to prevent them from becoming successful. Whether it is your business or personal computer, most people house their most valuable information on their PC; from credit card info, to business proposals, to valuable documents. Don’t allow this information to be compromised due to a lack of awareness. IT University Online’s hacking prevention training gives users the tools they need to make sure these attacks don’t take place.
This ITU course features using case-studies, live demonstration videos and short tests to make sure users are not vulnerable to the attacks that are becoming daily occurrences for businesses and individuals alike. The instructor for this course is Kevin Mitnick, once the world’s most famous hacker in the late 80’s. For over a decade, Kevin has taken his knowledge of hacking and is now a world leading Security consultant for Fortune 500 companies. This course specializes in understanding the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and social engineering. Each case study ends with its own short multiple choice test and ends with a final quiz at the end of the training. Trainees also get a unique tool they keep with the program: Social Engineering Red Flags™ with 22 things to watch out for.

IT University’s courses include:
IT University uses only the industry’s finest instructors in the IT industry. They have a minimum of 15 years real-world experience and are subject matter experts in their fields. Unlike a live class, you can fast-forward, repeat or rewind all your lectures. This creates a personal learning experience and gives you all the benefit of hands-on training with the flexibility of doing it around your schedule 24/7.
Our courseware includes instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations that allow students to develop their skills based on real world scenarios explained by the instructor. IT University always focuses on real world scenarios and skill-set development.
IT University’s custom practice exams prepare you for your exams differently and more effectively than the traditional exam preps on the market. We test you in three different ways; first, you have a learning tool, that gives you feedback as to why an answer is correct or incorrect. Next, you’ll receive the questions presented in a randomized, timed format very similar to the live exam. Every time you take the exam, new questions appear. At the end of the test you will be shown, in percentage, what areas of the curriculum you are strong on as well as what areas you’re weak on. The third part allows you to test on a “Single Objective” from that exam. This will allow you to pick one topic and then get questions just on that subject.
IT University’s self-paced training programs are designed in a modular fashion to allow you the flexibility to work with expert level instruction anytime 24/7. All courses are arranged in defined sections with navigation controls allowing you to control the pace of your training.
