Here’s what our students say about us.
I just got recruited as an Infosec Analyst in a bank and as a newbie. I have been overwhelmed by the great number of solutions being used to manage our operations and this course gave me insight into each solution and why it’s put in place. From Web Application Firewall (WAF) to Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) to perimeter firewalls......the course is great!
