Major data breaches and hacks have littered the national news cycle in the past year, but those represent only a small number of the actual number of cyber crimes committed on a daily basis. As recently as 2015, IBM found that over 4,000 cyber attacks were attempted every day, and the problem has only gotten worse. As such, the demand for ethical hackers—cyber professionals paid to hack into organizational networks and systems to expose vulnerabilities—has risen considerably. Certified Ethical Hackers these days can create their own hours and command yearly salaries into the six figures.
Missed the cybersecurity path in college? It’s not too late to break into this booming industry. One great step is The Super-Sized Ethical Hacking Bundle, available now for a special $25 price this week only. This 9-course, 78-hour bundle covers topics as diverse as basic security fundamentals, website hacking, social engineering, penetration testing, and much more. You’ll learn how to use leading ethical hacking tools like Kali Linux and Metasploit, as well as the protocols and ethics of testing corporate systems. Moreover, you’ll get a full introduction to one of the most popular ways ethical hackers earn extra cash: earning bug bounties from major companies like Google and Facebook.
This extensive bundle will also prepare you to sit and pass the CompTIA Security+ certification exam, one of the first major stepping stones to a career in cybersecurity. Individually, these courses could run you over $1,000. Popular Science typically bundles them together for $43. However, for this week only, you can pick up the bundle for the special price of $25.
