“3 out of 10 computers worldwide are infected with malicious software”. I’m not the one saying that. It comes from a report done by Microsoft Security Intelligence, Panda Security and Consumer Reports.
The software they are talking about are viruses, trojans and adware. 27 million of them were created last year alone. Talking about numbers, 74.000 new pieces of software are detected daily. If you translate that into money, last year only in the USA, the malicious software that infected personal and corporate computers was estimated at a loss of $4.5 billion.
You may tell me that you use a Mac and there’s no way for this to affect you. Sure enough! But your company has windows machines. In order to fight that, the companies neet to hire IT Security Professionals to test their infrastructure.
Those activities, called “Penetration Testing Projects” are intended to discover and report security breaches, so those vulnerabilities are later fixed. There is a saying that goes like this: “In order to protect yourself from hackers, you must think as one”. Anyone can become an IT security expert, either with the objective to start or develop an IT (security) career, or just as a hobby.
Now here’s the deal. You can find a lot of information online related to this, but if you just want an online-based training, well structured and well explained I recommend this one – “Step by Step Network Infrastructure Ethical Hacking”.
Before you get scared by the term “hacking” you need to understand what it really means in this context. This course will offer an overview of penetration testing, and then it will go in depth about the steps of this kind of project.
It’s not just a PDF file that you have to read and understand on your own. It contains lectures and videos about scanning networks, finding and exploiting vulnerabilities, network sniffing, viruses, cryptography, and wireless network’s hacking. This training is based on a practical approach of day-by-day situations and it has labs based on real environments.
Virtual machines will be provided so you can apply what you’ve learned. You can use the knowledge you’ve gathered either for offensive penetration testing or ethical hacking or to protect your own infrastructure system.
At the end of the training, a certificate of completion will be provided.
