    What is syllabus of Ethical hacking

    Planing to go for a ethical hacking course. I had finished my Bsc.IT. I have a keen interest in software testing and programming. Later on I developed interest in security testing. I found that there is quiet a good scope here. Does going for ethical hacking course from a reputed institution is well enough. What is a criteria to became well cyber expert to deal with web crime cases.

    I think by going for a good course you can deal with cyber crime. You can either join a institution or provide advice on the same. But for getting entry in government sector you have to check out for eligibility. For course detail have a look on AFCEH on web. They offer the course in 6999.

    First to fight cases in court it does not matter whether it is based on IT or other sector, you need a LLB degree. This makes you eligible to stand in a court as a lawyer. If you just go for ethical hacking courses and think to fight cyber crime cases, then forget that. To became a better and eligible cyber lawyer you need to purse llb which is done after graduation. There is still time you can go for the same. Or else your experience and work will be sticked to private sector only. But if you own dual degree there are chances of getting more paid. Cyber crime has became a root in India due introduction of various technology.

    Like other countries we are too prone to number of attacks. There are big financial institution, offices, data center, etc which seek support and advice of professional to deal with day to day security matters. On the other hand this job is more crucial. You have to stay updated from any type of attack appear in the market. Instead of just going for ethical hacking, get a good law degree. That will make you stronger.

    I work on testing and penetration. But in private sector. There is less scope here. Though you are paid good, but there are less chances of getting recognition. I found the above suggestion much better.

    That would be a bit time consuming. But for career it is good. There are many institution which appear instantly offering you cyber crime courses. Based on latest industrial standard they try to offer you better details. It is recommended that along with new courses you must learn about the latest threat that keep on appearing. Understanding the threat and then finding the right solution to deal with the same is a good skill of ethical hacker. Some companies hire candidates with this qualification to test their product. Remember that you are only valued if you have enough experience in this field. Freshers are not yet counted as good.

    Or you must invest a good amount to do courses from reputed institution that offers you campus placement. There is a bit little scope in our counter for this. Because except big enterprise, mid size business do not really are interested in setting up a dedicated IT dept. So the scope of employment is reduced to some extent.

    Getting a good certificate and if you want to enter government sector then get a law degree also. Ethical hacking is not a narrow concept. It is quiet broad and it needs a better understanding. Many institution provide various type of courses. The quality of information that you will get depends on the type of course you are going for. To some extent it is a bit complicated process, which needs better understanding of various IT terminologies.

    The more you learn the more you will be experienced. If you are not willing to pay then there are number of website which offer you free resources to learn and understand the hacking concept. But remember that you must not test this out on any other. This will put you under legal penalty. That is the reason many are recommended to learn this from a reputed institute.

    The courses that are offered are not quiet well. They teach you about various vulnerabilities. So to learn that stuff you have to be expert for a while. You must know all the technical stuff or else this course will be a waste of time for you.

    So first get used to a number of stuff before applying. You a can collect the course brochure form institution to find detail about the course.
