CIS 135 Certified Ethical Hacker

In order for students to compete for gainful employment in the cyber security field, both hands on experiences and certifications are necessary. For students who want to be cyber security professionals, this is the course to take as the course will expand their skills and knowledge. This course builds upon the topics and skills learned in CIS-134 and will prepare students for the Ethical Hacker Certification Exam. In addition, this course will focus on defensive hacking, with a code of ethics to guide students as professionals on how to use their skills for the greater good. Sample topics covered in this course are system fundamentals, enumeration, system hacking, penetration testing, system hardening, cloud technology security and social engineering. While CIS-134 is not required, it is highly encouraged as CIS-134 is more hands on and this course focuses on the Ethical Hacker (EH) certification exam.
