Overview/Description
System hacking is a set of techniques aimed at gaining access to target systems, maintaining that access, and covering tracks to prevent anyone finding evidence of the access. In this course, we look at system hacking, and the tools and techniques used. An ethical hacker is a person who attacks an organization’s security on behalf of its owners in order to discover vulnerabilities. Instead of taking advantage of these vulnerabilities, the ethical hacker reports them to the organization who can then put in place the appropriate countermeasures to protect themselves against malicious hackers. This course is the fifth in a series of courses which can used in preparation for the Certified Ethical Hacker 312-50 exam. The course has been developed in partnership with EC-Council and is based on their Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course materials and labs.
