If you are considering working in the cyber security industry, then this training will benefit you greatly. With Cybrary’s Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course, you will learn how to protect users from cyber attackers by becoming an ethical hacker and learning to exploit networks yourself.
As the internet continues to advance, cyber crimes do as well. Criminals no longer need to leave their homes to commit crimes, they can do so easily with a few clicks of a mouse and an internet connection. While current technology has given us access to huge amounts of information on websites and mobile devices and simplified tasks like shopping, paying bills, and banking services, it has also given rise to the need for ethical hackers to battle cyber criminals. There is no better time than now to begin a career in the cyber security industry.
Ethical hackers are able to help private businesses, public organizations, and government agencies infiltrate their secure systems to identify flaws and weaknesses within those systems. They determine which system areas are safe and which need additional security to help prevent threats to vulnerable networks, like malware attacks. In the Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking training, you will master objectives including Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, reconnaissance with Social Engineering and Google, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. Upon completion of this online training, students will have all the tools required for the development and application of an effective vulnerability prevention strategy to prevent the attackers from entering key systems.
