Ethical hacking courses to be run in Australia


For anyone with the skills and nous to become a "white hat" hacker, training and certification is coming to Australia.

Operated under the auspices of The International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, over the next few months a series of ethical hacking training courses will be run around Australia.

Having trained representatives of organisations such as the Pentagon, US Military, Citibank, McAfee and American Express, EC-Council Australian Director Ravin Prasad said Australian organisations, particularly those that store any kind of sensitive or personal data, would benefit from these one-of-a-kind, practically-focussed 'boot camps'.

Having worked with governments and commercial organisations from 84 countries (at last count) the group is well-experienced in running such courses; note that all intending students must pass a security check prior to admission to the courses.

There are courses to be run variously in Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane over the coming months. Scheduling details are available here.

The three courses/qualifications are, "Certified Ethical Hacking," "Certified Security Analyst" and "Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator."

Each of these is a 5-day course.

A spokesperson for the organisers described the courses as follows:

CEH course ($3,700) - beneficial for security officers, auditors, site administrators and security professionals

CHFI course $3,700) - beneficial for police and law enforcement personnel, defence and military personnel, e-business security professionals, systems administrators, legal professionals, banking and insurance professionals, Government agencies and IT managers

ECSA course ($5,495) - beneficial for network server administrators, firewall administrators, security testers, system administrators and risk assessment professionals.
