Ethical Hacking

Posted by NB

Introduction to Ethical Hacking - 5CPE - Training/Class

Ethical hacking is the concept of simulating a malicious actor with the intention of strengthening the security posture of an application or system rather than true malevolent intent. This introductory course in ethical hacking will explore the general steps taken by hackers to better understand a attack sequence. Participants will be familiarized to with several concepts outlined in both the Certified Ethical Hacker study guide as well as the Lockheed Martin (LM) Intrusion Kill Chain. Merging these two methodologies together will provide a more complete understanding of how hackers compromise systems and the potential cybersecurity controls which need to be evaded during an attack sequence.
