"Amateurs hack systems,professionals hack people." (Bruce Schneier)

In this course, meant for beginners with no previous knowledge about penetration testing or hacking, that will start with the basics of social engineering, and by end of it you'll be at an advanced level being able to hack into all major operating systems (windows, Android and so on), generate different types of trojans and deliver them using smart social engineering techniques. 

To completely understand computer security, it's vital to step outside the fence and to think outside the box. Computer security is not just about firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems or antiviruses. It's also about tricking people into doing whatever a hacker wishes, for their benefit. A secure system, network or infrastructure is also about informed people. That's it what about this course is all about. Knowing how easy is for a hacker to make a regular user to do something harmful for himself, even being aware that is making a bit mistake.

This course covers both theoretical and practical aspects and contains hands-on labs.

Learn how to get Facebook, Gmail iCloud, Linkedin password trough social engineering, create backdoors and get remote control.

This courses have demos and labs using Kali Linux.

Disclaimer: this course is intended for ethical hackers and those who want to protect against this kind of attacks. Those are only theoretical examples in a lab environment. Hacking is illegal without legal permission!

  • IT Security Engineers
