Ethical Hacking: Wireless Hacking

Wireless hacking refers to the unauthorized access or usage of a wireless network. A hacker can change the network settings, software and other security components of a network after hacking into a wireless network. Certain networks require the hackers to possess a high level of technological skills, while some other networks require minimal technological skills from the hackers. With the increase in the use of wireless networks in the current world, the usage and unauthorized access to wireless networks has also increased. Therefore, it is important to be well aware of these wireless hacking practices and to take appropriate preventive measures in order to safeguard the network from unauthorized activities.

Cybercrimes cost organizations millions of dollars every year. Therefore, many organizations have started to dedicate their time towards creating a strong cyber security team within their organizations. There are currently over a million Cyber Security job openings globally, and the demand is greatly outpacing supply. You would love a career in cyber security if you look for challenges, progression and a higher salary in your profession.

By the time you’ve completed this course, you will know all about advanced wireless security, Kismac, Metasploit, and much more.

Ethical Hacking: Social Engineering

Social engineering covers a wide range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions. Typically these malicious activities involve tricking users into making security mistakes or giving away sensitive information instead of hacking into their systems. Social engineering is recognized as one of the greatest security threats facing organizations today. Social engineering can be in forms of emails from friends, emails from trusted sources or from responses to an issue you didn’t address. Social engineering is considered to be the easiest way to gain access to another computer or system than hacking. It is important to be educated and be aware of social engineering practices in order to safeguard personal and confidential information.

Hackers mostly try to gain access to a computer or system through social engineering as it is comparatively easier than hacking. With the increase in the malicious activities by hackers, the need for cyber security has also increased among organizations. There are currently over a million Cyber Security job openings globally, and the demand is greatly outpacing supply. A job position in cyber security is the ideal career path if you like your job to be challenging, progressive and to offer a higher salary.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
