Information security rests on three pillars: People, processes and technology. None of the three can do without the rest. But for people with no technical background, the technical pillar can be quite difficult. The IT- world uses its own specific tools and jargon, making a conversation with people from that world seem like a game in ‘Babylonian Confusion of Tongues’.
SECO Institute's IT-Security Certification Track is a four-level certification program tailored for those who aspire to start a career in IT security and advance to a high-level IT security role.
The program was developed by experienced and committed IT security managers and cybersecurity advisors. The certification levels address the knowledge and hands-on skills you need to possess in order to become a successful IT security professional who is able to overcome today’s risks and anticipate tomorrow’s threats.
As you evolve through the certification levels, you will learn to master all aspects of technological information security, and you will earn the competence-based credentials that enable you to build a thriving security career.
IT-SECURITY QUALIFICATION PATH
From Foundation to Expert, each certification level comprises a practice-oriented training course and a certification exam.
Each certification exam tests the knowledge and industry-established competencies covered in the corresponding course.
IT Security Foundation is an entry-level course designed to provide you with an in-depth understanding of the technical aspects of information security. Following this course, you will understand fundamental information technology and security concepts, and you will gain a practical overview of IT infrastructure components, vulnerabilities and protections.
