How to Select the Right Information Security Cert Course
With so many options available, it can be tough to know what cyber security certification is the right fit for your current skills, your future goals, and your personal interests.
At ONLC, we offer classes that help lead to certifications for CompTIA Security+ and CASP, Microsoft MTA Security, Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), CISSP and CyberSec security. But which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at each of these categories, to help you decide which cyber security certification is worth pursuing and which you should postpone.
If your job responsibilities – or the ones you wish you have – include securing network services, devices, and traffic at an organization, the CompTIA® Security+® (Exam SY0-401) might be a good bet for you. Throughout a CompTIA Security+ course with ONLC, you’ll build on your existing knowledge through coverage of security fundamentals, networks, and organizational security. Along the way, you’ll acquire specific skills required to implement security systems and services on any type of computer network.
Today’s job market demands individuals with demonstrable skills, and the information and activities in this course can help you build your computer security skill set so that you can confidently perform your duties in any security-related role.
Microsoft MTA Security
If you’re an information security specialist hoping to learn and validate fundamental security concepts as well as a focus on security layers, authentication, authorization, and accounting, the Microsoft MTA Security course with ONLC might serve you well. It’s a relatively new and very innovative course track that is meant to provide a pathway to success in technology. Participants will also become familiar with security policies, network security, and how to protect both a server and a client.
Certified Ethical Hacker
Want to take the tools and techniques hackers use to penetrate security systems and use them for good? The Certified Ethical Hacker course is for you. At ONLC, our instructors offer the world’s most advanced, progressive ethical hacking course. It includes 18 of the most current security domains any ethical hacker will ever want to know when they are planning to beef up the information security posture of their organization. In 18 comprehensive modules, the course covers 270 attack technologies, commonly used by hackers. Through this course, you’ll learn the techniques hackers use to compromise an organization’s security, and how you can use those techniques to identify weak spots, and create a remediation plan that protects users.
Are you an experienced IT security professional, auditor, consultant, or investigator, hoping to learn more about CISSP training to advance in your computer security career? This course is for you. In it, you’ll study all 10 CISSP CBK domains, and validate your knowledge by taking – and passing! – the CISSP certification exam. This test, however, is notoriously difficult, and should not be taken on lightly. Even those students with years of experience in the field should expect to put in extra time beyond class to master the material. As such, it’s required that certification-seekers have five years’ experience in one or more fields directly related to the 10 CBK security domains, or a college degree and four years’ experience.
Whether you’re a long-time cyber security professional looking to level up or a newcomer who needs a broader base of knowledge before becoming more specialized, ONLC has a course for you!
