On the 12 Feb 2011 Security I Trust closed its IT Security service and training division. The www.securityitrust.com website was then transformed into a Free IT Security Information website. One of the primary issue in the IT Security market was that many businesses had Zero awareness of why they need IT Security so the new goal of Security I Trust has become a good IT Security resource on the Internet, packed with IT Security Tools, Tips, exam tools and general IT Security information so that it can become a useful resource for other organisations.
In 2017 “Security I Trust” realized that one of the big gape resulting in so many Data Breaches, and companies getting hacked is a result of companies failing to provide adequate IT security budget to including training of their staff. If companies are unwilling to train their staff with the necessary IT Security skill how can they expect their staff to ensure the company has adequate IT security knowledge. To make a small step toward this very large problem Security I Trust started offering Forensic and PenTesting course at a level that most individual can afford.
