Which hacking course is best?

The best hacking course for you is dependent on the level of experience you have, as well as your learning goals. At Cybrary we offer hacking courses at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Some of the most popular ethical hacking courses include Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking, Advanced Penetration Testing, Post-Exploitation Hacking, and Computer Hacking & Forensics. As a beginner, the best courses for you to begin with are CompTIA A+ and Network+. These will give you the foundation you need in order to understand the course material at the intermediate level. If you come from an IT or similar background, then you can likely start at the intermediate level. The best courses for someone at an intermediate level include Web Application Penetration Testing and Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking. Both of these are useful in their own way and will help familiarize you with concepts you will encounter at the advanced level. Once at the intermediate level, there are several different advanced paths you can take depending on your ethical hacking goals. Some of those paths include Security, Social Engineering, Malware Analysis, Post Exploitation Hacking, and Advanced Penetration Testing. Whichever advanced path you choose, Cybrary’s extensive course library is the best online source for all of your hacking needs.

Who can take a hacking course?

With Cybrary, anyone is able to take a hacking course. Our web-based learning platform is free to join and open to all who wish to learn. This is because Cybrary’s goal is to make IT, cyber security, penetration testing, and ethical hacking available to everyone, regardless of circumstance. As you start out on your hacking journey It is important to understand what it means to be an ethical hacker. Ethical hackers are hackers who penetrate networks with the goal of uncovering that network’s weaknesses on the owner’s behalf. This way the network owner is better able to secure their system from malicious attacks. If this sounds like something you are interested in pursuing, then you have come to the right place.
