Cybersecurity: Ethical Hacker

This course teaches the principles and technologies involved with looking for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems from a network security perspective including the five phases of penetration testing. Students are exposed to the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker and learn how to assess the security posture of target systems in a lawful and legitimate manner building upon their knowledge of networks and security. The tools and techniques used in this course are approached from a vendor-neutral perspective many times using open source tools commonly found on the Internet. This course helps prepare students for the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam and other cybersecurity related exams.
