Information Security Courses – Coming soon (2016)


Dear readers, how are you?

I have been writing a few courses that I intend to teach next year and, this time, I want to share the titles with you:

  1. Hacking (part 1 and 2)
  2. Digital Forensic Analysis
  3. Malware Analysis (part 1 and 2)
  4. Memory Forensic Analysis for Windows
  5. Memory Forensic Analysis for Linux
  6. Reversing Engineering
  7. Crash Dump Analysis

All courses will be in ILT format (instructor leading training), each one with 40 hours and they will be taught in Brazil. It is expected that courses 1, 2, 3 and 4 are ready by March/2016, but delays can happen because my overloaded agenda. All courses are based on my professional experience and previous courses, which I have been teaching for companies since 2013 in a tailored way and now I want to make them public.

Next step is to make all courses available in Virtual Academy format. Nonetheless, I am thinking about the best platform to make it possible.

If you are interested, send a message to training@alexandreborges.org.

Soon I will be publishing the TOC (Table of Contents) of each course.

Have a nice day.
