Why this training is needed in the industry
In many cases parties responsible for making security decisions have spent large amounts of money on Cyber related protection, because of this other security topics outside cyber and physical security often get overlooked even though corporate espionage cost US companies over $16 billion in lost revenue (and probably higher) due to technical attacks. In fact many cyber security related attacks start out with technical targeting. In this course you will learn how to detect electronic surveillance, eavesdropping and other common methods that hackers and attackers utilized to spy on their targets before cyber security related attacks take place.
In many cases threat actors will target the electronic assets of a corporation to include personal cell phones, surveillance of individuals, surreptitious eavesdropping on corporations and executives and similar methods to gain information that can be utilized in cyber related attacks. In many cases cyber attacks can be prevented with proper electronic countermeasures being put in place.
This course provides a solid introduction into the methods, techniques of the adversary as well as the methods, policies and strategy to defeat this type of technical threat. We also cover non technical threats so that you can fully understand how businesses are being targeted and what corporate and Government clients can do to prevent such highly advanced technical attack vectors.
