CWSA Wireless Security Training Course: Hands-On


This wireless security training course run over 2 days (completely revised in 2010) gives delegates an understanding of:

  • • Different types of 802.11i networks
  • • How hackers bypass wireless security
  • • Implementing wireless security measures

Wireless security training is vital when considering deployment of wireless LANs.  As wireless grows in popularity and more security horror stories hit the headlines, the need to secure these networks has become ever greater. The course follows the evolution of wireless security, teaching the underlying principles so that delegates leave not only with an understanding of the current scene but also better prepared as the world of wireless inevitably changes.  Hands-on exercises reinforce theory with practice, allowing delegates to see the methods work for themselves.


Delegates who successfully complete the exam included at the end of the training course will be awarded the Certified Wireless Security Analyst (CWSA) qualification.
