This class will immerse the students in an interactive environment where they will learn how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. The lab-intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security tools. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be led into scanning and attacking their own networks. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Topics covered include intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows and virus creation. When a student leaves this intensive 5-day class they will have a solid understanding and hands-on experience in ethical hacking. This course prepares you for EC-Council ANSI accredited Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.
