In this Guide to Ethical Hacking, Matt Ford of Foursys sets out the definition, goals and processes involved in the use of ethical hacking.

Using practical examples, the guide covers the 5 key phases of hacking typically used by hackers to gain access to networks that IT Administrators all too often believe are secure.

The Guide offers often thought-provoking insights into the techniques and secrets of malicious hackers, such as:

  • Initial network and system reconnaissance of target networks 
  • Scanning for possible areas of vulnerability
  • Gaining and maintaining access
  • Hiding the evidence of an attack

With example lab tests that can be readily used by IT professionals, the “Quick Start Guide to Ethical Hacking” offers a comprehensive look at the methods used, helping you stay a step ahead of the hackers by understanding their mind-set. Crucially, it will also help you put the necessary measures in place to prevent them compromising your network.
