Topics & Concepts Covered in our LPT and ECSA Bootcamp

The ECSA Certification training course instructs individuals on how to assess the security risks of a network based on many and deep hacking and penetrating methods. The class emphasizes how a network can be attacked, and what measures could be taken to lessen or avoid the security risks a network may face. The ECSA takes hacking and forensic practice to a much heightened level above where the CEH and CHFI have gone.

Recommended Training Audience and Prerequisites

ECSA Training is recommended for Ethical Hackers, Penetration Testers, Network Server Administrators, Firewall Administrators, Security Testers, System Administrators and Risk Assessment professionals.

You do not need to be certified with CEH in order enroll in the ECSA training course. However, CEH is strongly recommended. If you do not have core ethical hacking skills, this course is not for you.
