Certification & Training Programmes
ThinkSECURE's IT-Security Training & Certification Programmes address the fundamental question: Who Trains The Security Professionals?
We strongly believe that lab-based hands-on training together with practical lab-based examinations provide the most realistic and accurate validation of a candidate's true technical skill and ability to apply methodology and knowledge learnt to new scenarios.
Founded by technical IT-Security practitioners, we're all about offering 100% practical, relevant, hands-on technical training that will enable the people who have to technically execute IT-Security.
That's why we've gone down the tough road with having pure lab-based, hands-on practical examinations for all our certification programmes. Sure it's more expensive to develop, run and maintain such a certification setup - but if doctors and lawyers are held to high standards, how much more so an IT-Security Professional who is tasked with protecting vital infrastructure essential to the continued safe operation of his or her organization's and country's activities and commerce!
ThinkSECURE's instructors and our Authorized Training Center (ATC) partners' Certified Trainers are active IT-Security practitioners who bring a wealth of real-world experience to the classroom. The trainers who deliver ThinkSECURE's practical technical certification programmes are all ThinkSECURE-accredited and go through a continuous trainer's quality-assurance programme.
Another thing that sets ThinkSECURE apart is that we believe in contributing back to the IT-Security community in a practical way through various programs such as the design and organizing of Security Tournaments as well as releasing tools and research findings.
From the menu on the left, you can choose from a variety of practical technical, lab-based IT-Security Certification Programmes, covering topics ranging from enterprise to wireless auditing and secure wireless deployment.
Why Get A ThinkSECURE Certification?
ThinkSECURE's certification exams are practical lab-based exams. This means that certification candidates must obtain results through a series of technical actions and command entries against certain target infrastructure in order to be able to answer various questions.
This means that the attendee is tested for application of knowledge, and not just memorizing facts for an examination, spewing them out and forgetting them later. Only through practical lab-based examinations can the true technical capability of the candidate be properly assessed, under time-based pressure that is commonly found in real-life scenarios.
Thus, our Certifications offer the following advantages:
ensures that only candidates demonstrating ability to apply knowledge practically in a real-world pressure scenario get certifiied.
stops pretenders who do not know how to apply knowledge in a practical way from attaining and thus devaluing our certifications over the long run.
safeguards the investment that course attendees and their employers make in getting certified.
helping employers identify that someone who is ThinkSECURE-Certified is likely to be able to contribute to the organization from the start.
providing the IT-Security industry with a pool of technical security professionals who are extremely capable and self-motivated.
