What makes you quickly get a job if a particular certification is added on your resume?
What makes being certified so special and out of the box?
Well, it is like the 1st campus interview you attend back in your final year of college. All of you solved the same test, went through the same coding test, but when the personal interview round arrived, your class toper stole the show by making it with just 2 or 3 answers whereas the rest of you got grilled for at least half an hour. And you must have thought of yourself a 100 times “How come he/she get to be so privileged?”
The answer is pretty simple. No matter how much we all hate this grading system, but once our teachers graded someone as a topper, that meant the person must be really skilled. Isn’t it? The same happens when you get certified. An IT certification is stamp of approval that you have practiced and mastered a specific skill set that is needed for the particular job role you have applied for. Now, circling back to the title we started this blog with. If you take up our Ethical Hacking Certification course, which skills will you learn there? Before we answer this, you need to know what are the skills required for ethical hacking.
In our previous blog “Certified Ethical Hacker: The Dark Knight of Technology” we mentioned the skills that are needed to become an ethical hacker. In this blog, we are going to discuss why those skills are needed for ethical hacking. We listed up the top 5 skills we train you about in our Certified Ethical Hacking sessions. Let’s get started with them. Shall we?
Networking denotes the interconnection of multiple devices, generally termed as hosts connected using paths for the purpose of sending and receiving data or media Data transmission between nodes is supported over data links consisting of physical cable media, such as twisted pair or fiber-optic cables, or by wireless methods, such as Wi-Fi, microwave transmission, or free-space optical communication. Hence, as you understand, the knowledge of networking helps you to find out the cause of vulnerabilities. That is why networking falls under the much-needed skills of ethical hacking. If you are thinking that you need to dig deep into networking to understand all the aspects of it, we can suggest you some shortcut. Instead of going through the whole of it, just consider to gain a deep understanding about the following pointers:
1) Network protocols.
2)Various network topologies
3)Various network devices.
4)knowledge about VPNs
5)knowledge about various network ports
Once you are clear about the above, consider the networking skill is added in your Ethical Hacking journal.
When it comes to ethical hacking, there is a very thin fine line between legal and illegal. And if you are being the reason for any activity that goes against the local security laws, you might drag the entire organization in a horrible mess. Hence, you need to be well aware of the government’s established cybersecurity laws. Few of the laws that are strictly followed in India are mentioned below:
Malware analysis is the study or process of determining the functionality, origin, and potential impact of a given malware sample such as a virus, worm, trojan horse, rootkit, or backdoor. Malware or malicious software is any computer software intended to harm the host operating system or to steal sensitive data from users, organizations, or companies. Malware may include software that gathers user information without permission. In order to become a good ethical hacker, you need to be able to analyze the malware software do the duplication of them following a thorough examination of its construction or composition. It involves taking apart the product to understand how it works so as to enhance or duplicate such a product. It makes it possible to understand the basic working principle and structure of the systems under study. Once you get through that you will be able to handle the malware attacks effectively. As you can understand, this skill is needed for ethical hacking for obvious reasons.
We are mentioning it last, but this goes without saying that this one is the most needed ethical hacking skills. If you want to choose the path of ethical hacking, knowing all its phases and methodologies allows you to hack in style. Don’t you think so? We also do.

Keep thinking, till the time we brew up some new ethical hacking articles for you!
