TLDR: The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle offers the training and hands-on practice to learn how to hack systems responsibly and join the growing industry.
Between TV like Mr. Robot or 24, movies as diverse as Blackhat or Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and videogames like Cyberpunk 2077 or Watch Dogs, it probably feels like hacking is pretty simple. All you’ve gotta do is slide around a couple firewalls and crack a whozawhatsit with your thingamajigger and bam — you’ve got U.S. Civil Command computers on their knees.
The obvious reality is that it isn’t nearly that easy. In fact, it takes so much skill to break into a protected system that companies hire those skilled enough to do it to find vulnerable access points in their system and plug them before the bad guys exploit it first.
With the training in The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle ($20 this week from TNW Deals), those looking to grow their skills and join the lucrative ethical hacking job market can learn all about the steps needed to get them there.
The collection features nine courses filled with over 46 hours of in-depth instruction, geared toward educating novice hackers in what it takes to make sure a computer network is secure and thoroughly well-defended.
The training starts with some coursework aimed at the beginners. In Hacking Web Applications and Penetration Testing: Fast Start, students are introduced to the tactics for ethically hacking websites from scratch. That happens through hands-on practices to discover and exploit common vulnerabilities like SQL injection, XSS (cross-site scripting), and CSRF (cross-site request forgery).
From those roots, skills come fast and furious, including courses in specific techniques for spotting and managing potential trouble spots in web apps, WiFi networks, cloud systems, and more.
Now armed with those foundational abilities, other training focuses on some of the most popular tools, methodologies, and other knowledge a learner needs to know to go from curious dabbler to seasoned security professional. Courses range from learning Nmap, the web’s most known network scanning tool, to gaining experience with other key hacking tools like Wireshark, Nmap, Metasploit and Maltego.
All together, the courses in The 2021 All-in-One Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Bundle are valued at $1,800, but during this special limited-time price drop on select courses and course bundles, the entire collection is on sale for just $20. However, don’t sleep on this deal since it’s set to end in less than a week.
