Ethical Hacking

StormWind’s Ethical Hacking online training course will immerse students into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. Students will gain an understanding of how to leverage a multitude of tools at the disposal of today’s hackers. Ethical hackers use many of the same tools as malicious hackers including, footprinting, sniffing, trojans, and more! When a student completes this online training course they will have knowledge and experience working as penetration testers on their organization’s Red Team. Students completing all activities in this training will have the knowledge to pass the CEH exam (312-50).
