The first half of this course focuses on describing and providing a technical walk-through of several emerging threats including next-generation phishing, drive-by-pharming, online extortion, multi-application botnets, crimeware, mobile worms, and VoIP security. In the second half of the course, we focus on emerging defenses that are just on the horizon such as mechanisms included in Windows Vista. We discuss how some of these next generation defenses may mitigate growing threats, and where they fall short. This course is updated every year and may be repeated once every two years for additional credit towards the advanced certification.
