IT security foundation - E-learning

The IT Security Foundation (ITSF) e-learning course provides you with a comprehensive introduction to IT security.

This e-learning course will build your IT security knowledge from the ground up. You will learn what components make up an IT infrastructure and what vulnerabilities each component may have. You will also understand how attackers exploit common vulnerabilities and what tools you can use to prevent exploitation. At the end of the course, you will have a global understanding of IT security without having to immerse yourself deeply in information technology.

This course prepares for the S-ITSF certificate.

An S-ITSF certificate demonstrates that you have an overall understanding of IT security challenges and best-practice remedies. If you are considering a career in IT security, S-ITSF provides you with an excellent opportunity to enter the security industry and advance your skills with higher-level security training.
