About Course

This is a 3-day unique, authoritative, high-value, hands-on practical course which will provide participants with essential understanding of the tools, methodologies and vulnerabilities that  fraudsters could employ to exploit IT systems. Most organisations now realise that in order to defend themselves against the threat of attack by fraudsters and indeed any individual intent on causing disruption to their IT systems, IT staff must have an informed and current understanding of the present-day methodologies, tools, and vulnerabilities which allow these exploits to happen. For the banking sector, this course will be very useful in preventing revenue leakages through fraudulent activities.


This IT Security course is designed to educate IT professionals in order to allow them to defend systems against hacking and fraudsters attacks. During this course, participants will learn about the fraudster mindset and become familiar with the tools and methodologies that are used to attack systems. Using state-of-the-art classroom setups, delegates work with Microsoft Windows and LINUX/UNIX systems, and associated server software. A wide range of security and auditing tools will be used during the course.
