According to Wikipedia, an ethical hacker is a computer specialist who tests security systems and networks in a positive way. His goal is to track down flaws and vulnerabilities in the systems and networks, and then report them to the companies or organisations they work with.
“Ethical hackers want to help in the fight against cybercrime. They are the ‘good guys’ of the internet. We desperately need ethical hackers to ensure that our world becomes more secure.”
During this training you will crawl into the skin of a hacker. The training focuses on the background and basic knowledge in the area of cybersecurity. Topics that are treated are relevant cyber threats and common vulnerabilities in systems. You learn how to hack by doing it.
In this course you will mainly work as an ethical hacker yourself. No previous experience with hacking is required. You learn to understand how a hacker thinks, and experience firsthand how it works to break into a computer system. On the basis of a specially designed Qbit environment, you are taken into the hacking of an infrastructure and web application.
