What

The goal of this 2 day accelerated course is to teach non-technical students the basic knowledge of Computer Security and Computer Networks so that they are aware of actual hacker frauds like Identity Theft, Viruses, Trojans and Phishing.

We will arm you with knowledge that can complement the system administrator's security safeguards and the chief security officer's security architecture for the corporation.

Those holding the EC Security5 Certificate have learned how to guard their own or their companies information assets.

Our Security5 Certification Program

  • Allows you to achieve your certifications in a fraction of the time of 'traditional training' while delivering industry-leading exam passing percentages
  • Helps students grasp complex technical concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system
  • Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

Yahya Alazri. - EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) (5 days) (29/1/2018 to 2/2/2018)

"I attended the CEH course at De Ruwenberg Hotel. Since it was the first time I attended a course in order to be certified in something related to my professional field, I did not know what to expect. Luckily for me, I didn't turn out to be a twelve-hours-a-day boring and endless course. Thanks to the instructor, the lessons went smoothly and were very entertaining, but without forgetting the main purpose of the course: pass the exam! For this, he proved that he knew what he was talking about, focusing on what was important and always providing practical situations. De Ruwenberg is the perfect hotel to organize these kind of events. Kind staff, quality facilities and surrounded by nature. Firebrand has its own house at the hotel, also with quality facilities, computer rooms with all the software that you might need already installed, snacks and beberages so that you dont have to worry about anything, just learn! In the end I passed the exam and I can say I am CEH certified ! Thank you Firebrand ! "
