    TLDR: The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle offers the training in becoming an ethical hacker, defending vulnerable computer systems from cyberattack.

    North Korean hackers infiltrated computer systems for a South Korean nuclear research institute, the latest in a string of attacks against South Korean targets. Closer to home, a new report says hackers have methods for gaining access to Peloton exercise bike cameras and mics. And in-development quantum computers could soon make the unthinkable possible — hacking a cryptocurrency wallet.

    It isn’t alarmist to say that cybersecurity threats are everywhere. Whether you want to understand those threats or even join the battle against these black hat forces, the training in The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle ($29.99, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) can give you the resources to defend your own computer, a company’s network, or even a entire cloud based system network.

    Over nine courses and more than 46 hours of instruction, this training can put any student on the path to a career as an ethical hacker, spotting and fixing network vulnerabilities to protect a computer or network of computers from outside infiltration.

    First timers can get up to speed with the training in Hacking Web Applications and Penetration Testing: Fast Start, a guide for newcomers to learn how to “ethically” hack websites from scratch. The course offers hands-on practice to discover and exploit the most common vulnerabilities, find authorization, authentication and session management flaws, and understand how to use those openings to get inside closed systems.

    Meanwhile, the other eight courses in this package, all administered by the online learning experts of the Oak Academy, delve further into other major cybersecurity areas. Students will learn how to run network scans, stop the most popular phishing and password attacks, defend against app or email infiltration, protect against malware, and more.

    That knowledge leads learners to craft a customized penetration toolkit for use in their ethical hacking defenses. There is also training in how social engineering can be used to compromise operating systems and social media accounts, how to defend a home or business WiFi network, and even the built-in defenses in a cloud platform like Microsoft Azure for defending a network in the cloud.

    An $1,800 value, the coursework in The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle is available now at just over $3 per course at $29.99.
