CYT130 - Ethical Hacking and Vulnerability Testing

This course introduces students to what and who ethical hackers are, how they are different from "non-ethical hackers", and why/how they are essential for protecting data from cyber-attacks. Students will look closely at the different types of tests that can be conducted by "ethical hackers" to assess the readiness of an organization's system to withstand cyber-attacks. The course also investigates the methods and tools used in cyber-attacks and their countermeasures, as well as available security resources that every organization needs to possess to be able to counter the different cyber-attack "types". This will equip the students with the knowledge and techniques to successfully consider the different methods of combating hackers and cyber-attacks.
