  • Understanding the hacking mindset - different ways hackers think and how hacking makes you think.
  • Much of hacking is looking at the world differently. By understanding the differences, both attacking and defending systems can be made easier.

  • We'll help you with what you need and how to get your own set up and how to use it.
  • Finding and Hacking Infrastructure over the Internet.
  • Hacking over the Internet requires a different approach to the internal network. We'll show you how to find a target organisation's infrastructure on the Internet.

No hacking experience is required for this course; this is a beginner's course. But enthusiasm is a must!

It's not necessary, but ideally, some technical background will help, in particular experience with the Windows or Linux command line. However, we're used to meeting students at their level.

At a minimum, students need a computer with a web browser they are comfortable using. As all the practicals are hosted in the cloud and the class web portal is used to deliver content.

If possible, students should bring a laptop with Kali Linux either installed or running in a VM. This lets students set up their environment to take home with them and can make the course a little more comfortable.

  • Access to our web class portal containing slides, practicals, walkthroughs and tools and prerequisites. This is accessible after the training.
  • Access to your own individual lab with numerous targets and capabilities, used for the practicals.
