About Mile 2
Going the Extra Mile
During the reign of the Ancient Roman Empire, a soldier could command any citizen to carry his load for approximately one mile and the citizen could not refuse. As you can imagine, the practice was often abused and became a source of contestation between the soldiers and citizens of Rome. This was such a strong area of tension that it is addressed in the Book of Matthew…”If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.” - Our modern terminology would say “Go the Extra Mile.”
The growing problem of cyber threats via ‘malicious hackers’ has forced many companies to carry the burden of installing cyber security teams and we here at Mile2 are dedicated to ensuring than anyone taking our courses is prepared to ‘go the extra mile’ for the systems they are protecting. We are a globally respected Cyber Security Organization that focuses on cybersecurity training for government and corporate entities who understand the value of “knowing your enemy.”
Through our proprietary vendor-neutral course work our students get AHEAD of the game, rather than just responding to threats as the arise. Mile2 certification courses teach fundamental and advanced principles of cyber security. These courses follow a track that leads to advanced hands-on skills training for penetration testing, disaster recovery, incident handling, and network forensics. By training businesses and organizations to think like an attacker, their intellectual property and data remain secure.
