Learn how to secure your legacy, cloud and virtualized infrastructure

Cyber incidents become more and more complex. Securing the use of Internet for communication and business starts with understanding known threats and security techniques, following the C-I-A triad philosophy: confidentiality, integrity and availability.

In this three-day course you learn the fundamentals of a secure virtualized enterprise infrastructure. We start from scratch and learn about essential threats, attacks and defences. Theory is illustrated with numerous demos of current security technologies and products.

Destiné à

This course is intended to anyone who doesn’t have any prior security knowledge and wants to understand all the essential key words and terminology. You do not need to be a “techie” to attend this course and to grasp all the IT security vitals. If you have already some security knowledge, this course might fill some gaps or clarify a few things.

Prerequisites: basic knowledge of IP networking and network elements.


Seeing that the trainer is an expert in his domain and is mastering everything teached during the class.

Op basis van het vooraf aangekondigde programma dacht ik dat de training veel te uitgebreid en veel te technische ging zijn. Maar dat was niet het geval. De trainer volgt niet letterlijk de slides en bouwde de technische uitleg geleidelijk aan op, zodat het voor iedereen te volgen was. Aanrader!
