Advanced - Junior Expert Ethical Hacker | CYBERSECURITY & CLOUD duration Part-time

In today's highly interconnected world, cybersecurity plays a crucial role in the broader framework of business risk management. In fact, it is an area destined to acquire an increasingly important role within company processes and the world of work.

Ethical Hackers are the leading figures in this field: by mastering the same tools used by hackers, they exploit the point of view of an attacker to deploy effective countermeasures for systems protection. 

This course will allow students to build solid foundations to specialize even further in subjects such as Vulnerability Assessment, Penetration Test, Malware Analysis, Incident Response, Digital Forensics.

The lectures will take place in a creative environment, with references to the typical underground "Old School" culture of hacking and within the framework of a Learning-by-Doing approach. Theory will thus be accompanied by a substantial part of hands-on practice (e.g. hacking simulations in a Linux environment), which will contribute to speed up and facilitate the entire learning process. 

The course includes the preparation module for the EXIN Ethical Hacking Foundation international certification. For those who wish so, there is also the possibility to attend the course and sit the exam to obtain the international certification EXIN Information Security Management Foundation.

Goal: to transfer basic technical knowledge in cybersecurity and in the fields of programming, scripting, networks and UNIX-type systems to allow participants to have a basic transversal know-how that will help them deal with more in-depth parts of the program. In order to make participants able to continue their personal development path in this area, the main security groups, the possible working areas and the most important cybersecurity international competitions in which one can join, will also be introduced.
MODULE 2 | Ethical Hacker techniques and tools

  • Ethical Hacking 2
  • Ethical Hacking 3
  • Ethical Hacking 4 (valid for EXIN intl. certification)
  • Practical workshop: Catch the Flag Contest

Goal: to explore with the participants the main cyber attack techniques and their related countermeasures; to teach them the basics of cryptography in the context of cybersecurity; to make participants become familiar with the main software tools of Vulnerability Assessment, Penetration Testing, Exploit Development and to teach them the Ethical Hacking standards and methodologies usually applied in companies and organizations. Moreover, the “Catch the Flag” competition will represent an excellent opportunity to perfect and consolidate students' problem solving and cooperation attitudes, which are essential for successfully facing the challenges posed by the intensification of cyber crime.
