Do you have what it takes to be an ethical hacker? Our program will allow you to enter the world of ethical hacking. Learn to become an expert who systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of its owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit. By identifying weaknesses in target systems, you will use the same methods and tools as a hacker, but in a lawful and ethical manner to evaluate the target system’s security. Additionally, this class will help you prepare for the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification exam.
