Information Security & Ethical Hacking - STPL Education Nigeria

Information Security and Ethical Hacking (ISEH)

In the growing cyberspace, today, security is one the most important functions. Large MNCs, Banks, I.T. companies etc. need professionals who would keep their data and information safe against the attack of black-hat hackers. To satisfy the need of this emerging and crucial industry, Aptech offers the Information Security and Ethical Hacking (ISEH) Program. The three-year program trains you in information security awareness, cryptography, encryption algorithms, and different types of security models. It gives you an opportunity to be hired by top companies to protect and secure their data.

In the world today, cybersecurity is of utmost importance. The world is a global village connected by computers and with these connections come the real threat of attack by malicious persons. Users of computer systems and networks which include individuals, firms,
companies, multinationals, agencies and governments have to protect themselves from cyberattacks by black-hat hackers who violate computer security for reasons not more than maliciousness and personal gain and aggrandisement.

This is where STPL Education comes in with the Aptech Information Security and Ethical Hacking (ISEH) programme. The three-year program trains you in information security awareness, cryptography, encryption algorithms, and different types of security models. Here, students will learn the same skills black-hat hackers possess – knowing how to find and exploit vulnerabilities and weaknesses in various systems – however, the skills will be used legitimately and lawfully by trying to find vulnerabilities in the system before the malicious hackers discover them and infiltrate the system.

An ethical hacker is the ultimate cybersecurity professional and undergoing the Information Security and Ethical Hacking (ISEH) programme and subsequently being certified as a cybersecurity professional gives you the opportunity to be hired by top companies to protect and secure their data.

The programme is divided into six semesters with each semester containing different modules. After each semester, students will be awarded certain certifications. For example, after the completion of the first semester, the Certificate in Network Technologies (CNT) will be
awarded while after the completion of the second semester, the Diploma in Information Security (DIS) will be awarded. The completion of the third and fourth semesters will see students awarded the Higher Diploma in Information Security (HDIS) while the completion of the fifth and sixth semesters will see students awarded the Advanced Diploma in Information Security & Ethical Hacking (ADIE).

In the first and second semesters, students will learn everything from logic building and elementary programming to information security and organisational structure. These will teach them the basic structure and tags of HTML5, JavaScript basics, steps for installation and configuration of media, configuration, verification & troubleshooting of basic router operations and routing on Cisco/Juniper
devices, identification of security threats to a network and general methods on how to mitigate those threats.

From the third to the last semester, the lectures will be as informative as ever with students being taught how to configure a network infrastructure, the administration of the Linux operating system, database management, cryptography, security architecture and hacking, security of handheld devices (smartphones), cloud security, advanced ethical hacking and computer forensics.

At the end of the course, students will understand and be able to explain and demonstrate different techniques and ways of
troubleshooting, protecting and ethically hacking into systems.

Each semester has an average of 140 hours of lectures that are taught by world-class professionals in the most conducive of facilities. STPL Education offers a pathway to being a professional ethical or white-hat hacker with this innovative programme.
