In this module, we’ll get started with what is hacking and understand some of the differences between "white hat" hackers and "black hat" hackers or "grey hat” hackers. It will cover at a high level what are some of the essential tools a hacker needs to know about and be proficient with as well as the credentials of a hacker and what you can expect when becoming a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), a certification by the EC-Council.

In this module we will dig deeper into the primary operating systems used for hacking: Linux and windows. Automating tasks is critical to your job as a hacker and knowledge of shell scripts is key. Some of these examples will be shown as well as an overview of hacking terminology around operating systems and a look at Linux and Windows.


This course narrows in on how to identify threats both external and internal. Perhaps one of the employees of the business uses a very weak password and this is a security threat that a dictionary attack tool can rapidly find. It then covers how to gain information or "footprinting" on a target of ethical hacking. It shows how to scan and also to mitigate scans to acquire information about weak points and then explains diagramming your system from a hacking perspective.

There are many different types of Malware from trojans and worms to viruses and backdoors. Learning about how each threat is different is key and about how to mitigate it. Examples will be shown with Wireshark and how to interact with Packets. Also, the human element of Ethical Hacking will be covered. Perhaps a company is very good in network security but lacking in physical security. This is an area that social engineering can come into play. How do you case an establishment and look for week points in the human element? And also, how can you attempt to mitigate these threats.


Given their centrality in operations of most businesses, Websites represent tempting and low-hanging fruit for hackers. In this module we’ll reveal how both session hacking and the hacking of entire web servers have become all too commonplace. We will also discuss the latest detection tools, counter measures and penetration testing you will need to thwart these attacks.


In the ongoing war between white hat and black hat hackers, web applications are a longstanding yet continually evolving battleground. In this module, we examine the new weaponry both sides are bringing to the fight and takes a thorough look at one of the most widely used attack vectors, SQL injection.
SQL Injection is an attack technique used to exploit applications that construct SQL statements from user-supplied input. When successful, the attacker is able to change the logic of SQL statements executed against the database.

This module discusses the firewall and other security tools used to provide security to the wired networks and offers a methodology to protect a wireless network. An Analysis of the proposed methodology and its functionality will also be covered.


In this module, we will address the unique challenges cloud computing represents for cybersecurity professionals and discuss best practices regarding cryptography and encryption. Cryptography in the cloud employs encryption techniques to secure data that will be used or stored in the cloud. It allows users to conveniently and securely access shared cloud services, as any data that is hosted by cloud providers is protected with encryption.
