Ethical Hacking for Beginners
This video course provides a good starting point from which to learn ethical hacking and identify threats and vulnerabilities to secure your IT environment.
We’ll begin by introducing you to the best tools around; these are essential to get you started with penetration testing. Next, we’ll introduce you to a basic hacking technique: reconnaissance. You’ll get hands-on experience working with Metasploit and testing the effectiveness of different defenses. Next, you’ll learn about sniffing and how effective the Man-in-the-Middle attack can be. We’ll take you through a coffee shop scenario to further your understanding. You’ll get the hang of bypassing different defenses, then learn how hackers use networks to gain access to different systems.
