TakeDownCon Rocket City Will Offer Hands-On Hacker Training

Thursday April 16, 2015

Recognizing the growing demand for information security education and training, the EC-Council Foundation and Dynetics announced today some of the most sought-after technical training and certification classes offered by top training companies and led by well-respected instructors. TakeDownCon Academy will feature hands-on, "deep dive" hacking classes at the Dynetics Solutions Complex, 1004 Explorer Blvd., in Huntsville's Cummings Research Park July 16-19, prior to the TakeDownCon Rocket City conference.

TakeDownCon Academy training participants will receive a complimentary pass to the conference, official courseware (for EC-Council and CAST training), a complimentary exam voucher (for EC-Council certification training), a certificate of attendance and lunch and coffee breaks throughout the training.

Training Academy will offer such classes as Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) v8, Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO), Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI), EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), "Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis (SCYBER) 1" and the master class, "Hacking and Securing Windows Infrastructure Bootcamp."

The CEH program, highly in demand in the cyber security field, certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of ethical hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The CEH certification will fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators and others who are concerned about the integrity of a network's infrastructure. A certified ethical hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker.

Dynetics Vice President Jonathan Whitcomb, Enterprise Solutions, said, "We are pleased to again partner with the EC-Council foundation to offer some of the most highly acclaimed cybersecurity classes and a world-class conference, all in one venue and at a very reasonable price."

Discounts for training are available to EC-Council members, government employees and college students and professors. An early bird rate applies through June 15. 

The TakeDownCon Rocket City conference is a highly technical forum that focuses on the latest vulnerabilities, the most potent exploits and current security threats. The best and the brightest in the cybersecurity field will share their expertise, giving attendees an opportunity to learn about the industry's most current and important issues.
