IT Operations are the backbones of organizations today. 'Hacking' is an action taken from either inside or outside of an organization aimed at affecting the integrity of that organization's network infrastructure. If successful, it could potentially cease the IT operations of a company, thus completely crippling it or causing thousands of dollars-worth of damage. Several international IT consultancy firms and regional media sources have reported that the rate of hacking incidents is on the rise, especially in the GCC region.

Management, when conducting business planning exercises, usually seeks to deploy top-of-the-range hardware and software within their organizations. However, more often than not they neglect security training for their IT Staff.

'Ethical Hacking &Countermeasures' is a hands-on course that is focused on teaching IT professional on how to think like hackers, which in turn helps IT professionals defend their organization against hackers. The course targets different levels of security expertise from various business sectors, such as security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned with the integrity of a network infrastructure.
