As we become more dependent on the internet, we expose ourselves to more risks. Hackers could gridlock traffic, shut down power grids, and more. Fortunately, "white hat" hackers stand between malicious actors and the rest of us, carefully testing our systems for safety and resiliency. And if you want to join them, the 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking & Penetration Testing Bundle offers nine courses showing you the ins and outs of the superheroes of cyberspace.
These courses are developed and taught by the team at OAK Academy, which was founded by a cadre of experienced IT professionals working to fill the skills gap causing a shortage of IT professionals. Each course is taught by an expert who knows the field inside and out, offering a firm grounding in the theory and practice of ethical hacking.
Across nine courses, containing 46 hours of lectures, you can start with the basics. Hacking Web Applications & Penetration Testing: Fast Start is designed for complete beginners to show them the ropes, while The Complete Social Engineering, Phishing, OSINT & Malware course discusses how psychology and a grasp of systems are the most dangerous weapons in a bad actor's arsenal. Finally, Free Tools for Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking offers a top-level view of the suite of tools white hats use to probe networks for weaknesses.
Once you complete those courses, or if you're already grounded in the basics, the remaining six courses explore how to use those tools in detail, from locating network vulnerabilities with NMap and Nessus to deploying Metasploit to gain control of systems. to cracking Wi-Fi networks. By the end, you'll have a full grounding in the fundamentals of cybersecurity and will be ready to deploy them to protect your organization.
Normally this bundle would cost $1800, but right now, you can get these nine courses for $29.99, 98% off.
