Communications and IT Security Specialist in the army signal corps for the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND)

Leading information security specialist, Espion is spearheading excellence in IT security training with a Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP®) Boot Camp hosted by the internationally recognised and uniquely qualified instructor, Clément Dupuis.

For IT security professionals looking to excel in their careers by becoming CISSP® certified, the Boot Camp, which takes place from 17-21 September 2012 at the Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes, London, is an opportunity to take
advantage of Dupuis’s unrivalled experience. In addition to teaching more CISSP®s than anyone else in the world Dupuis owns and maintains the information security website CCCure, which is widely considered the leading portal for CISSP® exam preparation.

Dupuis will share fascinating insights from his career spanning more than 20 years as a Communications and IT Security Specialist in the army signal corps for the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND). Most recently he has been carrying out security assessments and penetration tests for Fortune 500 companies and can speak with authority on Information Security from his own insight and experience.

Dupuis says: “A CISSP® certified IT professional is an effective weapon against the ever evolving threats to information system security. New terms such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), “denial of service” (DoS) attacks and a focus on “insider” threats from disgruntled employees have all stepped into the limelight. My goal is to make sure IT security professionals attain the skills required to cope with these insidious developments.”

Espion trainees enjoy a 90 per cent success rate in CISSP® exams and the company has tailored the Boot Camp to prepare students for the highly demanding and all-encompassing CISSP® examinations. Students will gain in-depth practical applications of the theory covered in the ten Domains of the Common Body of Knowledge and can leverage this new practical knowledge and experience in their daily work. The Boot Camp promises to be mutually beneficial to both organisation and student.

The price per delegate is £1,799. For more information or to secure a booking contact Mark Wiley, Research and Training Manager at Espion on T: +44 845 050 1711 or visit www.espiongroup.com.
