Join Lisa Bock for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Ethical Hacking: Overview.
- [Voiceover] This course is intended for network administrators, students, teachers, or anyone with an interest in learning more about the concept of ethical hacking and reasons it is important in an organization as part of an overall security framework. Participants should have a basic understanding of terms and concepts, and an interest in the subject. Now let's get started.
Security expert Lisa Bock starts with an overview of ethical hacking and the role of the ethical hacker. She reviews the kinds of threats networks face, and introduces the five phases of ethical hacking, from reconnaissance to covering your tracks. She also covers penetration-testing techniques and tools. The materials map directly to the "Introduction to Ethical Hacking" competency from the CEH Body of Knowledge, and provide an excellent jumping off point for the next courses in this series.
Note: Our Ethical Hacking series will map to the 18 parts of the EC-Council's certification exam. Find more courses in the series on Lisa's author page.
