We have an extra special offer for our community: a completely free course Thursday July 11th titled: “NSA Spying Concerns? Learn Counterveillance!”
This course is an hour long, interactive, instructor-led training program that will teach you the basics of counter surveillance, and, how you can use certain tools and techniques to defend yourself and your network against the next generation threat of data theft and data leakage. This course is particularly suited for anyone working in IT, but specifically for information security professionals, Network Administrators, Data Security Analysts, System and Network Security Administrators, Network Security Engineers and Security Professionals.
This course will increase your knowledge of network security and monitoring techniques: which will help you with your career with regards to your security skills. Network security is clearly a priority for every business involved in any online commerce or services – so an understanding of the security dimensions is certainly a positive!
Needless to say that this is a highly topical subject at the moment with the entire NSA/ Edward Snowdon affair. Although many suspected that the US (as well as every other nation) is monitoring our communications at every level; it has now been confirmed via the PRISM project. The NSA mining our phone and social networking data, no matter what the ‘real purpose was’, is something that does irritate us and this course will examine ways to ‘sniff’ if we are being preyed upon and how we can use counter surveillance methods and tools.
There are eight key learning topics that will be explained during the course. They are:
1. An introduction to the NSA and basic spying techniques.
2. Discover methods and techniques to see whether you are being monitored!
3. Learn the basics and fundamentals of Counterveillance/ Counter surveillance
4. Discover why counterveillance has been the most important missing piece of your security posture.
5. Get to know the required tools and techniques to execute a concise countersurveillance strategy.
6. Data Leakage! Learn how to use tools and techniques to reduce data leakage.
7. Learn the best practices of Counterveillance.
8. Learn how you can become an expert within the (in demand) counterveillance field.
