Earn a certificate in ethical hacking in addition to your degree.
When most people hear the words “ethical hacking,” they probably think of Crime or illegal
But not many people know what it actually involves and how to become certified as an ethical hacker.
Here in Ethical Hacking Institute, graduate students are given the opportunity to earn a certificate in ethical hacking in addition to their degree.
The course is being offered in Classroom Mode with course instructor being 7+years of Corporate Experience, the course itself is a given by the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants or EC-Council.
We have partnered with the EC-Council to give students the opportunity to stand out in the field.
The course technically teaches students the same methods that black-hat hackers use to get through firewalls.
Black-hat hackers are people who are known for breaking into computer networks and evading security to get data they see as valuable.
The methods behind this is the same as good hackers use in criminal justice.
“You have to know how a criminal thinks in order to stop him,” he said.
Students have to show they are efficient in hacking through a final exam at the end that consists of a simulation showing they can bypass a security protocol on a network.
The only reason it is ethical is because you are helping the government or the company that employs you from losing data.
But at its core, hackers are still people who are breaking the law every time they go to work.
The only difference between them and criminals is that they have permission to do so.
As the world becomes more connected through the internet, the responsibility that ethical hackers have will continue to grow.
When there is great responsibility, there is also a great amount of power.
Before “ethical hackers” take on their positions, they sign contracts agreeing not to release any information to which they have access.
So as long as you don’t do , your job will be secure.
Smart TVs, ovens, refrigerators, you name it – many are connected to the internet, yet none has security.
Some point out that having more items connected to the internet could help the government keep tabs on us.
And if the government can access such tools, black-hat hackers can do the same and that is the real threat.
It is really just the beginning of a field that is sure to continue to grow.
