The Social Media and Security Training course offered by UKI is a great and beneficial course combining technical training to fully understand TCP IP networking, DNS, and the harms of malware and cross-site scripting; as well as practical training that allowed attendees to play with open source social intelligence gathering solutions. This is the perfect class for those involved in IT security and interested in social media and identity theft.
