- 2019.09.09 ~ 2019.10.02 ○ When: September 9 Sep – 2 Oct 2019○ Organizer: BdRENThis course provides the foundational knowledge needed to ethically and effectively discover and exploit vulnerabilities in systems by assuming both the mindset and toolset of an attacker. The objective of conducting this course is not to create hackers but to protect the system from the perpetrators. It is taken for granted that without having the proper expertise of how hackers do hack, it is obvious that orchestrating remedial measures will be an unrealistic dream. Hence, to protect individual’s system and improve organization’s security, this course will work as a foundation. It will not be realistic to take that by doing a 4 (four) week course all the techniques and tools of hacking will be discovered. The motto of the course should not be over emphasized.Realistically, it is undeniable that by attending the course and following the assignments and contents the participants will have the interest and the confidence to understand and face the threat from preliminary level of hacking. Moreover, the course will arouse the interest in the participants to move forward and attend more advanced courses on ethical hacking.What you will learn?o To start thinking and looking at your network through the eyes of malicious attackers.o To understand the motivation of an attacker.o To protect infrastructure from not only outside attackers but also attackers within your company. The terminology used by attackerso The difference between "hacking" and "ethical hacking"o The phases of hackingo The types of attacks on a system, what skills an Ethical Hacker needs to obtaino Types of security policieso Why Ethical Hacking is essentialo How to roam around the hacking worldo To know who is a "hacker" and what are the biggest security attack vectorso How to identify vulnerableo How to defend attackso How to apply ethical hackingFor more information: https://dle.asiaconnect.bdren.net.bd/
