In Order To Catch A Hacker It Takes A Hacker...

We read about it everyday, how companies such as Target and Home Depot as well as organizations such as the DNC have been hacked.  The reason why these companies and organizations like them keep getting hacked, is often because the "Computer Security Experts" they hire have likely never been taught to hack anything, with the exception of a virtual server. 

The purpose of this course is to give students of all backgrounds and experience levels a well-researched and engaging introduction to the realm of becoming a real hacker. Starting with the first step of thinking like a hacker.  With real-world examples that reflect today's most important and relevant security topics. This course addresses how and why people attack computers and networks, so that students can be armed with the knowledge and techniques to successfully combat hackers. 

Because the world of hacking changes so quickly and is often the subject of much hype, this course also aims to provide a clear differentiation between hacking myths and hacking facts. Many hands-on exercises are included, which allow students to practice skills they've  learned to hack into a real network and/or website.

Specific topics covered includes:

  • Ethics of Hacking and Cracking
  • Thinking Like A Criminal
  • Reconnaissance
  • Scanning Tools
  • Sniffers
  • TCP/IP Vulnerabilities
  • Encryption and Password Cracking
  • Spoofing
  • Session Hijacking
  • Hacking Network Devices
  • Trojan Horses
  • Denial-of-Service Attacks
  • Buffer Overflows
  • Programming Exploits
  • Mail Vulnerabilities
  • Web Application Vulnerabilities

Do You Think Your Ready For The NBA?

Think about this, if you attended Labron James' basketball camp for 4 years, and then attended Kobe Bryant's basketball camp for another 4 years and spent 4 more years at Magic Johnsons' basketball camp, does that mean that you are now qualified to play in the NBA? Now think about this, big corporations hire CTO's, CIO's, IT Mangers and others who have college degrees as well as numerous certifications from a variety of cyber security organizations. Does this now qualify them to be on the same level as a hacker? What these institutes and organizations do not teach is how to think like that bad guy... the hacker. The hackers that are attacking Fortune 500 companies and our government infrastructure likely did not attend college or receive certifications in cyber security. They are self taught.
