Why Should I Enrol?

From a business owner’s point of view, investing in this training will save in-house IT teams time and resources as they will spend less time fixing issues that could have easily been avoided. This means they will be able to focus on improving infrastructure and working on projects, safe in the knowledge that the company’s employees have been empowered to work without compromising the organisation’s network.

From a more personal perspective, it is a fact of modern life that, to stay ahead of cyber-crime, it is up to us as individuals to get savvy and educate ourselves on how to avoid becoming victims. After all, the Office of National Statistics’ data has shown that cyber-crime is fast out-pacing physical crime in the UK.

All training has a real-world focus relating to day-to-day scenarios and the practical approach is heightened by access to EC-Council’s innovative iLabs tool.
