The goal of the ethical hacker is to help the organization take preemptive measures against malicious attacks by attacking the system himself;
all the while staying within legal limits. This philosophy stems from the proven practice of trying to catch a thief, by thinking like a thief.
As technology advances and organization depend on technology increasingly, information assets have evolved into critical components of survival.
This class will immerse the student into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems.
