Ethical Hacking to Protect a Company

Protect your business by employing a certified ethical hacker.
An individual trained in ethical hacking can save businesses by providing security for their networks, data and other computer applications.


A Certified Ethical Hacker knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in systems, and uses the same tools that a malicious hacker might use, but applies them to businesses and organizations in defense against security attacks on their systems, regardless of the vendor, technologies or equipment.

Students who complete the Certified Ethical Hacking course, and ultimately pass the certifying exam, learn the best ways to manage information security for their organization. Students learn to scan, test, hack and secure their systems which provides an approach to solving security issues in every instance.

In this course students learn key issues that affect information security, processes for incident management, and ways to test for security gaps and then learn the best ways to address those issues by learning to think like a hacker.

People certified in ethical hacking can provide companies with the security they need to know that their networks and information are safe. This certification is beneficial for individuals looking to enhance their résumés, or as a professional development option for IT departments within a company.

SLCC’s next Ethical Hacking course, which provides the CEH credential, runs March 27 through April 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. and costs $1200. Interested students or businesses should contact Joe Fox at 801-957-5221.

For people looking to advance with their current company, or seeking better employment, online training courses and certifications provide excellent professional development opportunities when time is stretched thin.

4 ways SLCC can help your business grow while unemployment is low

Utah’s unemployment numbers are holding steady at 3.1 percent as of January, according to the Department of Workforce Services. With such low unemployment rates, the best thing a business can do is develop their existing workforce. Here are a few things you may not know about the workforce training available at Salt Lake Community College.

  1. We can supplement your existing training team. Many companies and organizations have trainers or human resource teams devoted to training, but find themselves stretched thin. With the resources available at Salt Lake Community College, we can bolster your existing training programs and help you find additional ways to help your team grow. If your company is located in Salt Lake County, there may be opportunities for subsidized training.
  2. There is no training too big or too small. Our team is ready to help your corporate group develop an accelerated business degree for a cohort of your employees, or help you find a solution for teaching a small group of employees a new piece of machinery. We even offer short-term intensive training to individuals looking to improve their employment prospects.
  3. No trainer? No problem! For companies without the resources to support full-time training staff, Salt Lake Community College’s Workforce & Economic Development team can fill that gap. Whether training needs are in information technology, transportation, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, technical trades, business and finance or general education we can help find, or develop courses that fill the training gap.
  4. There’s always more to learn! While it may make sense to reach out to SLCC to help train employees at your snowboard company on new skills through our composites program, it might not occur that they could benefit from additional training in a computer class, which could help with employee retention and morale.

In Their Words: Student Testimonials

From the moment that I saw and read the Energy Management program description, I knew that it was going to lead to me possessing a tangible skill set for which there was a high demand.

The instructors, all practitioners in their respective fields, spent lots of one-on-one time with individual students due to the class size being relatively small.  Ultimately it familiarized me with the aspects of each of the various fields we studied, and enabled me to really narrow down and determine which one I wanted to pursue further, career-wise.  SLCC prepared me for success.
