The Cybersecurity Bootcamp that will take you from ZERO to HIRED as a Cyber Security Engineer

Are you someone who is interested in learning cyber security from scratch?
Are you a web developer who feels lost and don't know what to do next?
Well, you are in the right place.

Learn everything you need know from the most comprehensive and up to date Cyber Security Bootcamp that you can find.

🚨 Spoiler Alert: This is a course preview 🚨

First of all let me answer a common question:
Should I learn ethical hacking?

Is it really worth it?

  • If these stats don't convince you, I don't know what will:
  • There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds
  • 64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks
  • Since COVID-19, the US FBI reported a 300% increase in reported cybercrimes
  • ~$10.5 trillion is expected to be spent globally on cybersecurity by 2025
  • Unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide grew 350% to ~3.5 million from 2013 to 2021. Way more jobs are becoming available than there are people with the skills to fill them.

Now that you are convinced, let's explore more about the course.

What will you learn?

Course Preview

πŸ‘‡ Complete Course Breakdown πŸ‘‡

1. Cyber Security Fundamentals

  • A good foundation is needed for success.
  • So you'll start with the basics of what cyber security is, the history of cyber security, and what it really means to be a Cyber Security Engineer.
  • You'll also learn the lingo and terminology used in the real world such as Red Teams, Blue Teams, Black Hat Hackers, and Digital Assets.

2. Understanding Hackers - The Biggest Threat

  • In your new career you'll be fighting against hackers.
  • So it's necessary to understand how they think, as well as the processes and techniques they use to attack.
  • You'll dive into the mind of hackers so that you can think like them and anticipate their moves.

3. Security Bugs & Vulnerabilities

  • In a perfect world, your systems have no security bugs. But we don't live in a perfect world.
  • There are always bugs and vulnerabilities. If there weren't, then cyber security wouldn't be such an in-demand field.
  • It's important that you understand what a security vulnerability is and the many types of vulnerabilities that can occur.
  • You'll also learn about my personal favorite subject, Buffer Overflows.

4. Social Engineering

  • Every system in the world has a common, virtually unavoidable vulnerability: people. In other words, social engineering = hacking people. That's right.
  • Hackers work to manipulate people by engineering situations where they let their guard down and provide the hackers with information that allows them to breach an otherwise strong system.
  • Ever get one of those scam emails where the emailer pretends to be someone you know? That's a basic attempt by a hacker at social engineering.
  • Social engineering can be done to gain access to a system without any software bug or vulnerability being present. For example, by delivering a payload through phishing links and making the person execute it without knowing that it's malicious.

5. End-Point Protection

  • In this section you'll take a long, hard look at how to protect one of your most vulnerable pieces of technology: end point devices, like your laptop and cell phone.
  • Everything from the basics like installing anti-virus and using a password manager, to more involved techniques that will protect you from advanced hackers. This section will help shore up your defenses.

6. Network Security

  • In this section you'll learn about using methods such as firewalls, and tools such as Nmap, Nessus, and Routersploit to discover any vulnerabilities in your network and its devices, including how to patch and secure your network.

7. Advanced Cyber Security Strategies

  • This section is where the rubber meets the road.
  • You'll learn how to implement advanced cyber security strategies and techniques.

8. Cyber Tracking

  • How are we tracked online? For anyone entering the cybersecurity field, one of the most important things you need to master is how tracking works on the internet.
  • This section includes things like how websites and apps track people, and how other people can track you.

9. Anonymity & Privacy

  • This section will teach you how to make yourself anonymous and increase privacy on the internet to decrease vulnerability to hackers, including methods such as a VPN or proxy, and browsing through Tor instead of regular browsers such as Google Chrome.
  • You'll also learn alternative, more secretive tools that can automate the process of anonymizing and privatizing your presence online.

10. Bonus Section - Ethical Hacking

  • One of the most in-demand specializations within Cyber Security is an Ethical Hacker (also known as a Penetration Tester).
  • This bonus section is part of our Ethical Hacking Bootcamp that teaches you the advanced techniques needed to work in this in-demand field.

I've been thinking of getting into this field for a while, but I can tell you that the other field attracted me more, and now I just use services like this one to make sure that my documents are safe, and I won't have to deal with data leakage or anything like that, I know that it happens way too often nowadays.
