The CIW Web Security series consists of one CIW course and corresponding CIW certification exam, plus two more advanced CIW credentials that you can obtain by earning additional certifications from third-party security and networking training providers.
In addition to teaching Web Foundations, this series teaches you how to secure your network from unauthorized activity. You will learn about security principles, such as establishing an effective security policy, and about the different types of hacker activities that you are most likely to encounter. Individuals with these security skills can pursue or advance careers in many aspects of online and network security.
Whichever level of certified expertise you aim for, you can demonstrate to employers that you have the technical skills and knowledge to manage and protect the security of online data, from a single computer to an entire corporate network.

Security managers are responsible for managing the security measures used to protect electronic data. They maintain the software and procedures necessary to protect the confidentiality and integrity of information, and they monitor legitimate access to it. They also perform security risk assessments, prepare for disaster recovery, monitor security control systems to ensure that appropriate security clearances and information access levels are maintained, and work with other departments to maintain secure data and information flow. Security managers may also implement and document the organization's security policies and procedures, provide security training to management and employees, and monitor and recommend advancements in information security technologies.
