Course Description

Helping protect your company's valuable assets against malicious attacks by outsiders requires a seasoned understanding of modern-day cyber threats. This 21-video course prepares learners to thwart reconnaissance and surveillance attacks by hackers and ward off Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, by using the proper tools. First, examine the wide variety of possible modes of attack from injection, overflow, and cross-site scripting to XML (extensible markup language), DoS, address resolution protocol (ARP) poisoning, and password compromises. Then develop valuable skills in counteracting web browser compromises and agility in the use of Kali Linux Wi-Fi tools. Learn OWASP's (Open Web Application Security Project) Top 10 vulnerabilities and ESAPI (Enterprise Security application programming interface) tools for each one, such as ZAP (Zed Attack Proxy), to test web application security. While you're learning, pause to meet the aptly-named John the Ripper, a free tool for cracking passwords on 15 platforms! The course helps to prepare learners for CompTIA+ Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) CS0-002 certification exam.
