Computer fraud, black-hat hacking, cyber-terrorists; these phrases describe an innovative generation of criminals that use over-the-wire technology to attack us, steal from us and terrorize us. However, the best tool in their arsenal is not new. It is only used by the most experienced, the most dangerous, boldest hackers.

The mile2 Certified Security Awareness  program is innovative and trains students on how attacks are performed, the skills necessary to perform an attack, how to train people to identify an attack but most importantly:  how to train internal targets so that the training is effective and lasts.
