This course is your introduction to white hat hacking, or testing methodologies designed to safeguard against security threats on a system. You’ll learn to think and act like a malicious hacker, preemptively launching attacks they may perpetuate in order to prevent them. By mastering penetration testing techniques like attacking routers and cracking passwords, you’ll not only learn how to identify security vulnerabilities—you’ll learn a skill set coveted by many employers.
Jerry Banfield started his business online in 2011 while working on his PhD to help people with video game addiction. When he tried to share his new venture with the world, he quickly became frustrated with the limited means of learning how to promote his website and chose to learn by making every mistake himself. In realizing everyone else must be having the same problem, he applied his experience to helping clients in more than twenty countries and then to teaching millions of students on YouTube. Over 1% of people on earth (100+ million) have seen something Jerry has done online from his Facebook ads to his viral gaming videos to his "The Jerry Banfield Show" podcast to his free tutorials with millions of views to his live daily gaming streams on Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Mixer! When you take one of Jerry’s classes, he is extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue being of service to you online and he tries to show that by adding new videos to his classes daily. Jerry has a wife and daughter he is grateful to see each day while working at home and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina and a master’s degree from the University of South Florida.
