Ethical Hacking, as the name suggests, is an ethical way of working with technology to find out weaknesses of a system, taking it to the next level for further development. Hacking is never illegal; it is an act of using skills and advanced techniques on a target to gain information about a system and its surroundings, though it depends on the nature of the person who is performing the action. The main focus of the Ethical Hacking and IT Security course is to train the student into an interactive environment where the student will learn the skills of performing vulnerability assessment, pen-testing of systems and networks, patching the weaknesses, making reports of scanned vulnerabilities.


The students will learn all aspects of ethical hacking and information security, which will enhance their skills making them confident in handling situations like zero-day incidence response, data-theft management, incidental data lost, or an Intrusion by the unauthorized. As almost every organization now days has its own website, database servers, which handle and store confidential data related to the future and on-going projects, staff details, customer’s details, member’s login credentials, credit card details, and other sophisticated data. An Information Security Expert is a first Priority personal required for the security of this data.

 

Our detailed course and real-time cutting edge techniques are taught to students by Industry Level Certified Professionals. A virtual environment created for students helps the participant to practice and perform real-time attacks on a virtual simulation network, advanced level penetration testing techniques, privilege escalation techniques that intruders use to penetrate the network.


Expert advice is always required in case of a detected attack, an unauthorized access log, or in a case where expert advice takes the case towards a decision. Advanced skills and real-time practice helps a student to attain a level of confidence to handle these situations easily. Reporting these attacks to a concerned is also a major role of an Information Security Expert nowadays. Our unmatched course layout covers major reporting methods that help students to practice the situation easily.


Modern tools and techniques, Command-line interface tutorials, Linux Operating system tutorials, and required coding skills help participants to become a successful Ethical Hacker. Wireless Communication standards, Wireless Hacking, Exploit Writing skills, Android and iPhone security, Network Security, and other major concepts which are also included in our course to make participants a complete Ethical Hacker.

Kevin Poulsen

In 1988, at the age of 23, Kevin Poulsen, known online as Dark Dante, hacked into a federal computer network and started poking around in files for the investigation of Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos. It wasn't his first hack, but it was the first time the feds had noticed him. When he found out they were on to him, he went on the run. But like so many hackers, that didn't mean he went offline.

During the 17 months, he was underground, Poulsen hacked FBI files, revealing wiretap details for mobsters, foreign politicians, and the American Civil Liberties Union. He and some hacker friends also took over the phone lines for an L.A. radio station, ensuring they were the winning caller in contests, netting themselves two Porsche sports cars, a couple of Hawaiian vacations, and $20,000 in cash. When the TV show Unsolved Mysteries picked up on Poulsen's story and broadcast a segment about him, mysteriously, as soon as the screen displayed the toll-free number viewers could use to report tips on the case, all the show's phone lines went dead. Still, the episode proved to be his downfall, as Poulsen was apprehended shortly after when the employees of a supermarket recognized him from the show.

During their prosecution, the FBI called Poulsen "The Hannibal Lecter of Computer Crime," scaring the courts enough to warrant holding him without bail for five years in federal prison while the government put their case together.

However, when all was said and done, they could only charge him with lesser crimes like money laundering and wire fraud, dropping some of the more serious hacking charges altogether. He was sentenced to "time served" and released, but was barred from touching a computer for three years.

Since then, Poulsen has become a respected journalist, writing about computer security for Wired Magazine, as well as a few books on the subject, like Kingpin, which comes out in February. He has also used his hacking skills for the forces of good, famously finding 744 registered sex offenders who were using MySpace to troll for underage victims.
