The EC-Council’s ECES-Certified Encryption Specialist is a program which will get attendees familiar with and excited about cryptography. Many well-known brands and companies just are not up to standard when it comes to multi-level encryption. This has led to a lot of recent successful attacks which potentially could have been avoided if someone would have put more time into areas like Wi-Fi, VoIP, and email encryptions. The goal of our encryption specialist training class is to use unique algorithms to convert, store, locate, and retrieve information that’s been stored various ways.

Classroom Based E|CES Certification Training

Delivery Style: 75% Hands-On, 25% Lecture

This course is offered at our two training locations in Ashburn, VA and Greenbelt, MD. The training course includes 3 days of intense, hands-on training which will enlighten attendees on the importance of encryption to many of today’s businesses. Students will also learn about cryptography best practices as well as common mistakes to watch out for. Knowing about various types of encryption technologies allows a person to utilize the one which will be the best fit for any given organization.

By the end of this 3 day course attendees will know how to set up and secure a virtual private network (VPN). Encrypting a VPN provides security so that information sent through it from a connected computer will stay isolated from others who are tapped into the same network. This allows information to be sent securely to destinations like the Internet, remote computers, and printers.

Attendees will also be able to successfully encrypt a drive. Encrypted drives have an extra level of protection and are able to remain concealed should they fall into the wrong hands. Gaining access to an encrypted drive is nearly impossible unless the encryption algorithm is known.

Classroom-Based CES Training Cost: $1,600 Per Enrollment (Includes Exam)
