Ethical Hacking

This course meets the standards of highly skilled security professionals by providing a comprehensive set of ethical hacking and network security skills, tools and methodologies.

Participants will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and will be guided into scanning and attacking their own networks (no real network is harmed). They will then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure their organization’s system.

Participants will also gain in-depth knowledge on intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks, buffer overflows and virus creation.

This course will prepare all participants wishing to take the EC-Council ANSI accredited Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.
