Today’s technology is moving fast and changing the way we do business. Companies digitize all information by default, store their data in the cloud and use open source software. This raises information security issues related to network and system infrastructure.
The purpose of ethical hacking is to evaluate the security of a computer system or network through the discovery and exploitation of vulnerabilities in a legal manner.
The EXIN Ethical Hacking Foundation module covers the basic steps of ethical hacking : intelligence gathering, scanning computer network / systems, and penetrating systems. Candidates are expected to be very aware of the difference between legal and illegal hacking, and the consequences of misuse.
