Ethical Hacker Training
This course is designed for security professionals and administrators.
This Ethical Hacking Professional course is an introduction to the concepts, tools, and techniques involved in ethical hacking. Businesses have an ever-growing dependency on IT security, due to the increasing complexity of systems and networks, and particularly the usage of mobile and wireless devices.
Security professionals warn us of the growing rate of hackers and their in-depth knowledge of how to overcome firewalls and standard security protocols, such as anti-malware.
This 2-day training course will develop your awareness of common IT security problems on which hackers rely on for access, to be better able to avoid and prevent attacks.
Our training delivers a comprehensive overview of the types of attacks and methodologies used by hackers, helping you understand and gain experience in recognising, defeating, and preventing threats to your systems. You will receive exposure to technologies and software tools and show how they can be used in real-life scenarios.
Over the duration of the course, you will increase your knowledge of risks and vulnerabilities, the methods used to exploit them, as well as gain a wider understanding of cybersecurity, from penetration testing to writing assessment reports. Through instructor-led training and hands-on lab-based exercises, you will gain the skills to enter the industry or enhance your career as an ethical hacker. However, this course can be taken by anyone in an IT security-based role who wishes to understand the mindset of cyber attackers, to better assess their system vulnerabilities and protect your information, despite the constantly evolving cybersecurity environment.
No formal entry requirements but you should be working in the industry.
Delivery will be over two days.
Delivery is on-line, led by an instructor in a virtual classroom environment.
There is no exam attached to this course. A certificate of attendance will be awarded on completion.
