Ethical Hacking: Vulnerability Analysis

by Dale Meredith

Pluralsight is not an official partner or accredited training center of EC-Council. In this course, you'll learn how important it is to not only scan your networks for any red flags but also how to analyse those results.

What you'll learn

Pluralsight is not an official partner or accredited training center of EC-Council. Networks aren’t what they use to be. They’re more complex than ever. Systems today are so interconnected, and buried within those systems are thousands of undetected security vulnerabilities waiting to be used against you. Attackers perform vulnerability analysis to identify loopholes in your organization's infrastructure. Any vulnerabilities they find will be used to breach and dig deeper into your systems. In this course, Ethical Hacking: Vulnerability Analysis, you'll learn how to further secure your infrastructures by using the same tools and techniques that attackers use to probe your network to find possible attack vectors. First, you'll be taught about the different types of vulnerabilities, the types of scans and possible regulatory requirements that you might face. Next, you'll learn about the different VMS (Vulnerability Management Software) programs and how to choose one that is best for your organization. Finally, you learn how to prioritize your vulnerabilities and the remediation steps needed for servers, a workstation, networks, or even virtual machines. When you've finished this course, you'll have under your "Utility-Belt," the skills and knowledge of an Ethical Hacker when it comes to vulnerability analysis.
