Back in 1983, Matthew Broderick was hacking U.S. Defense Department computers — and almost launched a nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union. Over 35 years later, real-life hackers are swarming over real Pentagon computers — and everybody’s thrilled with the situation.
Four years after the Defense Department first encouraged white hat hackers to locate vulnerabilities in their networked systems, almost 1,500 hackers have taken them up on the offer, finding close to 3,000 security situations the DoD found worthy of investigating.
It’s just another example of the impact ethical hackers are having as a force for good in our increasingly digital world. With talented white hats raking in up to $130,000 annually for their services, you can look into joining their ranks with training from The 2020 Premium Ethical Hacking Certification Bundle. The package is on sale now at hundreds off its regular price, down to just $59.99.
The package features more than 60 hours of training in all the most vital tools and tactics employed by the world’s top cybersecurity specialists.
After basic introductions with courses like the Complete Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security Master Class Course and All-in-One Hacking Guide: From Zero to Hero, the training moves into getting started on the path to becoming a bonafide penetration tester.
In the Web Penetration Tester: Jump Up a Level in Your Career course, students learn how to pentest a web app, control remote servers, cultivate information and look into the most effective attack styles to gain entry into a targeted system.
To do the job right, a good pentester needs the right tools. OWASP ZAP is the Swiss Army knife of penetration tools — and the PenTesting with OWASP ZAP: Mastery Course walks new and experienced users through its galaxy of versatile capabilities. There’s also a course in the use of server security app BitNinja, a program that actually learns from attacks to better defend its network in the future.
Finally, WordPress Hacking and Hardening in Simple Steps explains the increased security measures you can take to fortify a WordPress-built website, which currently makes up close to a third of all websites on the web today.
Each course here is a $200 value on its own, but by grabbing this deal now while it’s still available, the whole collection is now just $59.99.
