About the bundle
There has never been a better time to work in IT Security with the rise in cyber security attacks and a shortage of skilled IT Security professionals to combat them. IT Security professionals are required across all industries from government and defense, to finance and industry. As hackers become ever more creative in their efforts to steal information and disrupt lives, IT Security professionals are needed to counter these attacks and find better ways to secure systems.
This bundle contains a wide spectrum of certification courses that lead to globally recognised and in-demand certifications. The professional areas covered include: Firewall configuration and management, Implementation of Intrusion Prevention Systems, Information Systems Auditing, and Information Systems Analysis.

How is each course taught?
All courses are online and self-paced, meaning you do it in your own home, in your own time, at your own pace. Each lesson is pre-recorded allowing you to pause, fast-forward, skip sections, or go back to another lesson if you need to. The lessons are multi-media based, which means video and audio are used to teach the lessons. Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate. This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks, and using simulators as if you were using the real software program.
How long will it take me to complete each course?
As mentioned above, our courses are self-paced. Some people finish their course faster than others. If you choose to only do one of the certification courses from this bundle, then it will take you less time than if you do two or three or all of them. No matter what though, you will always have 10 months to complete your course.
What do I need?
All you need is an internet connection and a PC. While most of the lessons work on MACs, we recommend you use a PC for the best performance. Certain parts of the course may not display properly on older MACs. Once you’ve logged into your course, you may be prompted to down certain free plugins such as Java. Just follow the on-screen prompts.
