About the   Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking Training

If you are considering working in the cyber security industry, then this training will benefit you greatly. With REDBACK  Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course, you will learn how to protect users from cyber attackers by becoming an ethical hacker and learning to exploit networks yourself. As the internet continues to advance, cybercrimes do as well. Criminals no longer need to leave their homes to commit crimes, they can do so easily with a few clicks of a mouse and an internet connection. While current technology has given us access to huge amounts of information on websites and mobile devices and simplified tasks like shopping, paying bills, and banking services, it has also given rise to the need for ethical hackers to battle cyber criminals. There is no better time than now to begin a career in the cyber security industry. Ethical hackers are able to help private businesses, public organizations, and government agencies infiltrate their secure systems to identify flaws and weaknesses within those systems. They determine which system areas are safe and which need additional security to help prevent threats to vulnerable networks, like malware attacks. In the Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking training, you will master objectives including Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, reconnaissance with Social Engineering and Google, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. Upon completion of this online training, students will have all the tools required for the development and application of an effective vulnerability prevention strategy to prevent the attackers from entering key systems. Are you hoping to become a penetration tester? Do you want to become a SOC analyst? This course could take you one more step down your career path toward your goal. Sign up for Redback's Career Path program today!

What is Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing?

Ethical hacking involves penetration testing in that the networking expert methodically attempts to penetrate a network or computer system as a service to the owner of the system to find security vulnerabilities that a malevolent hacker may be able to exploit. While ethical hackers often use the same techniques and methods to test and penetrate systems as their criminal counterparts, they do so to document vulnerabilities and provide system owners with advice on how to fix them, rather than taking advantage of the weaknesses. An education in ethical hacking allows "white hat" hackers to evaluate the security of a system or network's infrastructure. It involves identifying and attempting to exploit any weaknesses to conclude if the potential for unauthorized access or other malicious or criminal activities exists. Weaknesses are often found in improper or poor system configuration, unknown and known computing or hardware flaws, and operational process weaknesses or technical countermeasures. By learning to hack ethically, security professionals in the industry are able to identify and overcome these vulnerabilities and provide system owners with solutions, security, and peace of mind.

What Jobs Are Available for Ethical Hackers?

The cybersecurity job market is thriving, and it isn't expected to slow down anytime soon. Expectations predict a growth from $75 billion in 2015 to a whopping $170 billion by the year 2020. Obtaining work in this industry can mean a great income, job security, and advancement potential. In 2017, nearly a quarter of a million jobs in the cyber security industry in the U.S. are unfilled and the growth of job postings in this area is up almost 75% over the last several years. There are many business opportunities, including company management positions, available for professional hackers in today's workforce. Some common titles for professional hacking experts include: security consultant, ethical hacker, penetration tester, information security analyst, cyber security analyst, security engineer, security analysis, data security engineer, information security manager, digital forensics analyst, site administrator, network security specialist, and IT auditor. In addition to careers in the corporate sector, there is ample opportunity for lucrative cyber security positions in top government agencies as well. The National Security Agency (NSA), Department of Defense (DoD) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) are all federal agencies who use ethical hacking to maintain privacy and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive government information.

How Do I Obtain An Ethical Hacking Certification?

Once you complete the Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking training (and any other applicable courses), you may consider moving ahead and obtaining a certification. The first step toward certification may be some advanced study on penetration testing and ethical hacking strategies, depending on your experience, skills level, and overall knowledge. You can obtain resources to help you prepare for certification. When you are ready, you may opt to take the exam for the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certificate, by the EC-Council, which is the most sought-after and recognizable certification available in this field. While not all ethical hacking positions require that you have certifications, it is a valuable credential to present to new or potential employers, as it shows that you have a fundamental knowledge of how to protect their systems using ethical hacking and penetration testing as the cornerstone of your methodology. The CEH certification involves an exam with 125 questions that you have four hours to complete, and terms require that you have passing score of at least 70% to receive your certificate. You can contact the EC-Council for more information. No longer will money have dominion over our ability to learn. Penetration testing and ethical hacking are skill sets as in-demand as anything else in the Cyber Security industry. Previous to Redback, this type of training was very expensive, and now it is free. Anyone who wants to become a penetration tester, ethical hacker (CEH), now has the opportunity to learn and do so, at no cost. To best prepare for the exam,

World's most hacked passwords revealed - Check if yours is there



With data breaches on the rise, the only thing that can protect your identity from being compromised is a strong password. But if a new report of most-hacked passwords is anything to go by, millions of people still don't take security

They use the same old passwords that we all, including potential hackers/cybercriminals, can predict.

More than 23 million people use '123456' as password

The National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) of the UK analyzed some 100,000 recurring passwords compromised in data breaches.

They accessed breached information with the help of Troy Hunt's 'Have I been pwned' database and found that more than 23 million people had 123456 as the password for their online accounts.

To recall, the same password was revealed as the worst one last year.

Other easy-to-guess passwords

Along with 123456, there were many more unimaginative and easy-to-crack passwords in NCSC's global list.

For some perspective, nearly 8 million people had 123456789 as their password - the 2nd most breached - while some 3.8 million and 3.6 million had qwerty and password, respectively.

These were followed by 1111111, 12345678, abc123, 1234567, password1, 12345, 1234567890, 123123, 000000, and Iloveyou.

Many even used their favorite football team's, fictional character's name

While most breached passwords revolved around predictive numeric patterns, there were also many who used the name of their favorite football team, musician, or fictional character.

According to the report, some 280,000 people had set liverpool as their password, 216,000 had chelsea, and 179,000 had arsenal.

Among fictional characters, over 333,000 people had set superman, 242,749 had naruto, and 203,116 had batman.

Blink182, 50cent most common musician passwords

As for musicians, blink182 and 50cent were the most common compromised passwords - used by 285,000 and 191,000 people, respectively. They were closely followed by eminem (167,983), metallica (140,841), slipknot (140,833).

Why knowing these passwords is important

Some of you may argue that revealing most hacked passwords can tip off hackers and risk the security of those still using them.

However, in our and NCSC's opinion, these passwords are way too predictable and letting the world know about them is the only way to drive people to change them and choose better passwords for online security.

Here's what NCSC's technical director said about these passwords

"Nobody should protect sensitive data with something that can be guessed, like their first name, local football team or favorite band," Ian Levy, technical director of the NCSC, said, noting that people keeping passwords like this put themselves at the risk of being hacked.

How to choose a good password?

If your password is one of the most hacked ones, we recommend changing it immediately and choosing a stronger one.

Now, this seems a little difficult but NCSC recommends choosing a password by combining three different but memorable words to keep accounts secured.

In case nothing comes up in your mind, go ahead and get a password manager, which would generate/save complex passwords automatically.

6 Critical Tips to Learn Programming Faster and it Will Land You a Job

6 Critical Tips to Learn Programming Faster and it  Will Land You a Job
Whether you’re currently pursuing a degree in computer science, an aspiring self-taught developer, or a Redback Academy student, mastering the craft of programming is a perpetual struggle. To assist in your learning the Redback instructors – here are six tips on how to learn programming faster.

1.  Learn by doing. Always play with the code while learning

With every new subject, the sooner you start playing with the code, the faster you will learn the given concepts. Even if you blaze through an entire chapter of reading and a topic like for loops seems straightforward – so straightforward even a monkey could do it – you’ll still be scratching your head when tasked to implement the code for the first time. You’ll think, “wait, what was that one piece of syntax again?” As the saying goes, you need to “use it or lose it”, because despite the evolution of technology, this ole’ proverb holds true when learning to code.
Hint: Build a project as you go through the material. A personal project is often the best starting point.

2. Grasp the fundamentals for long-term benefits

As elementary as they may appear at first, programming fundamentals always need to come first: the better you understand them, the easier it is to learn more advanced concepts. From our experience at Redback Academy, students who rush through the beginning of our courses – where we focus most on web development fundamentals – are often the first to get stuck as we transition into more advanced material, such as back-end programming. So before you ditch the first class of computer science 101, or skip chapter one , keep in mind that you are overlooking the most important step in your learning.

3. Code by hand. It sharpens proficiency and you’ll need it to get a job

Computer monitors become thinner, hard drives lighter, and programming languages more powerful, but coding-by-hand still remains one of the most effective methods to learn how to program. Be it on a whiteboard or notebook, coding-by-hand requires further caution, precision, and intent behind every line of code. Because unlike on a computer, you can’t run hand-written code midway through the sheet to check if the work is correct. Although more time consuming, this restriction will mold you into a more fundamentally sound developer, both in the classroom and the job market. For college exams and technical interviews – a critical component of the job interview process – you will have to code-by-hand, because not only is this good for learning, but it’s universally known to be the ultimate test for a programmer’s proficiency. So start early and get used to this old-school practice.

4. Seek out more  available resources. There’s a wealth of content

If a particular concept doesn’t make sense, in a textbook, or during class lecture, maintain your confidence and look for alternate  resources to learn the same content. Everyone learns differently, and just because one source doesn’t make sense, doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. It means that you’re not clicking with the delivery of the material. The  resources to learn computer programming are endless.
Hint: Don’t underestimate the power of google search.

5. Don’t just read the sample code. Tinker with it!

Reading sample code is not enough to understand how it works. To develop a true understanding, you need to actually run the code and tinker with it. With the additions of comments and instructions, sample code is packaged to be easily digestible by the reader; but in realityit’s pretty difficult to replicate from scratch. Reading is not the same as understanding, and actually trying to write the code yourself, or at least running it, will facilitate the learning process much more.

6. Take breaks when debugging

When debugging, it’s easy to go down the rabbit hole for hours, and there’s no guarantee that you will fix the problem. To avoid this, it’s best to step away from the bug for a few hours, and return with a fresh perspective. Not only is this a guaranteed way to help solve the problem, but you’ll also save yourself hours of headache. In the meantime, the bug won’t be going anywhere, and you’ll at least restore some needed sanity to improve productivity.

Conclusion: Keep Calm and Keep On Coding

Despite these 6 tips, the most important ingredient to learn programming faster is to remain confident. To do so, you should expect to fail repeatedly and be patient with your progress; because becoming an expert at anything requires hard work and time. And if a single doubt ever clouds your mind, remember that every programmer has walked this path before – none of them more destined to become a developer than you. Whichever path you are currently on, be it college or coding boot camp, the only barrier to success is your work ethic and confidence to persevere.

HOW BIG IS Google? 
We can answer that question in terms of revenue or stock price or customers or, well, metaphysical influence. But that's not all. Google is, among other things, a vast empire of computer software. We can answer in terms of code.
Google's Rachel Potvin came pretty close to an answer  at an engineering conference in Silicon Valley. She estimates that the software needed to run all of Google's Internet services—from Google Search to Gmail to Google Maps—spans some billion lines of code. By comparison, Microsoft's Windows operating system—one of the most complex software tools ever built for a single computer, a project under development since the 1980s—is likely in the realm of 50 million lines.
So, building Google is roughly the equivalent of building the Windows operating system 40 times over.
The comparison is more apt than you might think. Much like the code that underpins Windows, the 2 billion lines that drive Google are one thing. They drive Google Search, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google+, Google Calendar, Gmail, YouTube, and every other Google Internet service, and yet, all 2 billion lines sit in a single code repository available to all 25,000 Google engineers. Within the company, Google treats its code like an enormous operating system. "Though I can't prove it," Potvin says, "I would guess this is the largest single repository in use anywhere in the world."
Google is an extreme case. But its example shows how complex our software has grown in the Internet age—and how we've changed our coding tools and philosophies to accommodate this added complexity. Google's enormous repository is available only to coders inside Google. But in a way, it's analogous to GitHub, the public open source repository where engineers can share enormous amounts of code with the Internet at large. We're moving toward a world in which we regularly collaborate on code at a massive scale. This is the only way we can keep up with the rapid evolution of modern Internet services.
"Having 25,000 developers, as Google does, means it's sharing code with a diverse set of people with diverse set of skills," says Sam Lambert, the director of systems at GitHub. "But, as a small company, you can get some of that same advantage using GitHub and open source. There's that saying: 'A rising tide raises all boats.'"
The flip side is that building and running a 2-billion-line monolith is no simple task. "It must be a technical challenge—a huge feat," Lambert says. "The numbers are absolutely staggering."

Why choose a career in Digital marketing?

What is digital marketing?

In some ways, digital marketing is not that different from traditional marketing: you’ve got a product that you need to sell, and you’re looking to ways to engage with customers to build brand awareness and eventually “close” a sale.
Digital marketing encompasses, even more, roles and skills than marketing ever before, and it’s this flexible, versatile nature of the business that makes it so fascinating. Here are some general areas that a digital marketing professional will likely touch on during their training or career:
  • Video/audio production
  • Interactive technology (such as AI)
  • Mobile marketing
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Search engine marketing (SEM)
  • Social media
  • E-commerce
  • Email marketing
  • Marketing automation
  • Content management and curation
  • Web development
  • Web design
  • Copywriting and editing
  • Analytics
  • Business/marketing strategy
It’s a good idea to think about getting training in at least one or two specialty areas, unless you’re in management, in which case you’ll probably need to know quite a bit about them all.

What skills are in demand?

The digital economy is embedded in every corner of our lives, and it’s definitely not going anywhere. There’s a solid budget going into digital marketing now as opposed to the traditional marketing. 93% of online activity starts with a search engine, and ensures the continued effectiveness of SEO as a superior marketing strategy while about 80% of Americans make an online purchase at least once a month. Anyone thinking about starting or leading a business needs to have a basic understanding of digital marketing in order to convert customers.
There is plenty of room for people looking to enter the world of digital marketing and related careers. According to Smart Insights, some of the most in-demand skills for 2017 were digital advertising, content creation, content strategy, and social media, which is great news for those who veer towards the creative, social and business end of the spectrum.
For those who are more technically minded, there’s still plenty of demand and quite a high earning potential for those who specialize in technology like SEO and SEM since this is what can be at the base of what drives profits in any business. Content marketing relies on traffic and anyone with the technical expertise to analyze these patterns is going to be a valuable asset, especially as these types of jobs become more complex with the advent of AI.

Why choose a career in digital marketing?

Digital marketing is a career that has plenty of room for techs, creatives, and business people. There are so many avenues that you can follow; it’s best to focus on one or two things that you do best, then you can always learn more from there. If you have a business or communications background, you may want to consider going into management.
This is a field that’s ever-changing and engaging; there’s always something new to learn. And if you work in an agency, you’ll always be working with different clients, which means you’ll probably never get bored.
Beyond this, here are a few more reasons to consider this career. 
There’s a Digital Skills Gap: There’s a growing demand for people with digital skills, particularly for those in the middle-income bracket, specifically soft skills, and according to this study, it’s most pronounced in the US. So, sticking with ongoing training in this area, even if you’re not a complete tech geek, is a good thing to bank on into the foreseeable future.
Versatility: If you choose a career path or specialization in this field and you decide to pivot later, you’ll likely only need a little training in order to make the switch. In this sense, you can build on existing skills while still learning new ones but still stay in the same field. There’s plenty of choices, here, and ongoing learning opportunities, where different skills fit together in different ways.
The Industry is Always Evolving: As the industry grows and changes, there’s always something new and interesting to learn, and you can follow along and learn, whether you’re taking the lead on these initiatives or not. Since there will be a variety of specialists working in a given agency, you’ll likely be working alongside professionals with a variety of backgrounds, with everyone having to come together to build marketing strategies.
Earnings: When a job is in demand, that means there’s more opportunity to negotiate remuneration whether you are working in-house or as a freelancer. So long as you “show” your work through the job search process, you’ll be able to bid higher and higher the more experience you get. According to the Creative Group, content writers early in their career will likely start at a salary of at least $45, 000 and a new SEO specialist will probably be earning about $50,000 to start.
Be Creative: Not only is there plenty of opportunities for creatives to do their thing in writing, design and even video and audio production, there’s also plenty of room for day-to-day creativity in a general sense. You’ll always be having to think of new ways to market products, solve problems, and engage audiences.
Train at Your Own Pace: You can start working on building this specific career now, from the comfort of your own home, and do it your way. Take online courses, build a blog or a website, work on your own social media, get some volunteer or freelance work, and you’re on your way to building a solid portfolio from the comfort of your own home. For most specialties, there’s no need to spend thousands of hours and dollars sitting around in a classroom—you can really build your skills and get training in a way that suits your lifestyle. 
Work with Different People Every Day: You’re always going to find something new to do in this field - and have someone new to talk to. Whether it’s a new client, a colleague with an interesting specialty, or finding fun ways to engage and expand your audience, anyone with an interest in working with people will do well in the social and business end of this career. And if you’re a little more on the introverted side, you can stay behind the scenes doing writing or web work.

What types of people excel in this field?

All sorts of people can follow a career that touches on marketing; it depends on what your interests are. Having an extremely technical background isn’t usually necessary, though if you do know a thing or two about web design or coding, you’re probably going to be ahead of the competition.
Because this is such a dynamic field that requires ongoing learning, you pretty much need to be a self-starter—that is, willing to teach yourself new skills and technology on an ongoing basis. To this end, you’ll need to be a creative problem-solver. If you are curious, innovative, proactive, a natural leader, adaptable, creative, and have a good business sense; you’ll probably do well in most areas in this field.

How do you get trained as a digital marketing professional?

If you already have a background in marketing management, copywriting, web development or even design, you’ve already got plenty of transferable skills to go into digital marketing. You’ll probably want to get started on your own personal branding and build a portfolio in order to build your own unique digital presence.
It’s tough to stay on top of all of the latest trends, but getting a solid understanding of the basics of up and coming trends like AI and virtual reality in the context of how they’re being used for marketing is an excellent place to put your focus as well.
You should certainly make sure that your social media streams are consistent with your skills and aptitude--in other words, talk about what you are interested in and learning about publicly and as often as you can. Start a blog over at Medium and join some Facebook groups in your field of interest.
You’ll want to also look for a comprehensive, reputable training program to get official certification in one or more core areas. Once you’re officially certified, you’ll then have a leg-up amongst your peers when it comes to searching for fulfilling opportunities.

Kickstart your career in Digital Marketing with a Professional Diploma.
