Computer & Network Security Training with Michigan Technology Services
It's easy to worry about personal information floating around the Internet when you read stories about hackers breaking into Detroit area networks and stealing sensitive corporate information. Software vendors, however, are actively creating network security products and related computer security training to prevent such unwanted intrusions.
Cisco and Check Point use software and devices to create firewalls, and CompTIA has a vendor neutral security+ class. Newer to the market are very advanced IT Security courses, and classes on Ethical Hacking. That sounds odd - as if we will teach you to hack - but it's more along the lines of teaching you how to prevent the hacker from breaking into your network.

The training can take place at our location in Farmington Hills, 20 miles outside of Detroit, onsite at your office anywhere throughout the United States, or if you prefer, instructor led live online
Additional IT Security training classes include: Ethical Hacker Training as well as CISSP training.
