This course is taught by certified instructors using the Ethical Hacking course ware.

The Ethical Hacking course through Tech Marshals Academy Will help you to stop hackers by learning to think like one. This class immerses students in an interactive environment where they will scan, test, hack, and secure their own systems. Ethical Hacking candidates will learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Also covered will be Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows Virus Creation and more. Students will leave the class with a detailed plan on conducting vulnerability assessments and penetration tests.
