The cloud has brought about tons of innovation and features. One thing often forgotten about during implementation is security. This course is designed around introducing the prospective student to many of the cloud concepts and how to secure those through use of tools available to them.
One of the largest limiting factors for organizations considering migrating to the cloud is: "How do we maintain regulatory compliance in a cloud environment?" This course is designed to give a brief introduction to some of the tools and techniques the student can use to help answer that very question.

Welcome to the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification course! To obtain the CISSP certification, candidates need to pass an exam that consists of mostly multiple choice questions. The purpose of this course is to prepare you for the certification exam by introducing you to the concepts and terminology you need to know to pass. This course is designed to provide you with extensive knowledge, learning strategies, and instructor support along the way. In addition to the exam, you must meet a few other requirements in order to become a Certified Information Systems Security Professional. You must demonstrate that you follow the CISSP Code of Ethics, have a minimum of five years’ full-time paid work experience in the systems security field, and hold an IS or IT degree. With that in mind, before enrolling in this course, be sure that this is the right course for you. This course is designed for people who want to become certified security professionals and are looking for jobs that require the CISSP certification. Sometimes companies also require their systems security employees to obtain this certification. The prerequisites for this course are basic knowledge in networking and some knowledge of systems operations. Throughout this course, you will learn about the basics of asset security, cryptography, security and risk management, and various threats and attacks. This is a theoretical course — not a practical one — and we will cover many regulations, laws, policies, standards, and encryption protocols. With the flash cards, interactive diagrams, video lessons, and instructor support included with this course, you should be equipped with everything you need to successfully pass the exam and earn your CISSP certification.

Welcome to the Certified Ethical Hacker Course!
Have you always wanted to learn how to discover weaknesses and vulnerabilities of a system? Have you always wondered how security professionals protect their systems from intruders? Do you wish to master hacking technologies? If so, then this exam is for you.
With the rapid development of information technology, almost every industry in the world has some sort of an information system installed and greatly depends on it. Such systems bring great value to companies. However, every system has its weaknesses and vulnerabilities which, if discovered by someone with bad intentions, can cause a lot of damage. For this reason, it has become an imperative to protect these systems and information they contain.
If you wish to learn how you can improve the security of any system, or even if you have some experience working as a security professional and now wish to advance your skills and knowledge, then CEH certificate will be of great benefit to you and your organization.
This course will help you prepare for the exam. You will learn about the tools, methods, and technologies used. The goal of this course is to help you master the topics required for passing the exam and becoming an ethical hacker.
This course is designed to prepare prospective students for the Security+ Certification Exam. In this course, we will cover the domains of the Security+ Certification Exam:
After taking this course, the student will feel confident in their abilities to undertake the certification exam.
Welcome to the CompTIA PenTest+ certification course!
What is a penetration tester? Maybe you've been exposed to the idea of being an ethical hacker through movies or television, and this profession intrigues you. Or maybe you already work in the security field and you'd like to move into a penetration tester (pentester) role. If either of these are true, you've come to the right place.
Pentesters specialize in identifying and exploiting weaknesses within organizations. Pentesters not only work to discover weaknesses in servers and applications, but also in people. To be a successful pentester, you must know how to use a variety of tools, and you should be able to write scripts in multiple languages, as this allows you to write your own tools and create time-saving scripts.
The CompTIA PenTest+ certification course will walk you through the process of performing a pentest. You'll also become familiar with many popular tools and scripting languages. Whether you're interested in becoming a pentester or simply curious about the profession, this course is for you. Not only will this course prepare you for the certification exam, but it will also arm you with the skills necessary for entering into the mysterious realm of pentesting.

Welcome to the Kali Linux Deep Dive course! This course is intended for individuals who already possess a good amount of general IT knowledge, so be sure to read the list of prerequisites before you get started. Over the span of the course, we will dive into the nature of hacking at the hardware level. This is how virtually all vulnerabilities were discovered — by individuals combing through source code or reverse engineering binaries.
This is what sets this course apart from the many others like it. In this course, you will learn how the vulnerabilities that are readily available in frameworks like Metasploit, BeEF, SET, and others are found, so that you will be able to deconstruct a program instead of just trying to figure out how to use something other people wrote! We’ll also cover subjects such as anonymity online and tackle the common misconception that VPN services guarantee anonymity. You’ll learn how to set up and operate your own anonymizing services — that way you can trust them more!
In the Social Engineering section of the course, you will learn how to think like a hacker. This is extremely important, as your behavior and thought process determine whether you are an easy target for attacks or a serious cybersecurity specialist no one wants to mess with.
After finishing this course, you will have learned quite a bit, and you will most likely have questions. I am always here to help, so feel free to reach out and let me guide you on your way to becoming an expert white hat hacker.
