The Computer Hacking Prevention course uses case-studies, live demonstration videos, and short tests to make sure users are aware of threats and are not vulnerable to the attacks that are becoming daily occurrences for businesses and individuals alike. The instructor for this course is Kevin Mitnick, once the world's most famous hacker in the late 80's. For over a decade, Kevin has taken his knowledge of hacking and is now a world leading Security consultant for Fortune 500 companies. This course specializes in understanding the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and social engineering. Each case study ends with its own short multiple choice tests and ends with a final quiz at the end of the training. Trainees also get a unique tool they keep with the program: Social Engineering Red Flags with 22 things to watch out for.
