Cybersecurity and Hacking 101

Learn cybersecurity from basic principles to advanced topics like cryptography.


If cybersecurity fascinates you and you want to learn how hacking is done, this is the course for you. It’s time to finally understand what’s behind the news headlines.

In this class, you will learn the basics of cybersecurity and hacking by showing you the principles. From principles, we will decline the techniques that are used in this field. If you are more on the defensive side, you’ll learn how to defend your kingdom. And if you are on the offensive side, you’ll learn how to attack and penetrate.

Also, this course can help you prepare for entry-level cybersecurity certifications such as CompTIA Security +

Together, we will explore:

  • The principles of cybersecurity: CIA Triad

  • Types of attacks: MITM, Phishing, Denial-of-Service DoS, Malware, Injection, Cross-site Scripting, Social Engineering

  • Network and Application Security: OSI Model, TCP, UDP, HTTP, Web Application Firewall WAF, OWASP

  • Organizational and Design Concepts: Defense in Depth, Least Privilege, Separation of Duties, Fail Securely

  • Cryptography: Symmetric and asymmetric algorithms, keys, hashing

  • Vulnerabilities, threats, exploits, and threat actors

  • Identity and Access Management: Protocols (SAML, ODIC), Multi-Factor Authentication MFA

  • Digital Forensics: NIST SP 800-86

  • MITRE ATT&CK Tactics and Techniques

  • CEH Attack Methodology

The class is broken down into 14 short video lessons about all the aspects of cybersecurity, starting from CIA triad, vulnerabilities and threats, malware, identity and access management, network security, all the way to cryptography, digital forensics, and design concepts.

The class has also a project where you will have the opportunity to do hands-on exercises to understand hacking and penetration testing. The project will involve working on a vulnerable application and finding different vulnerabilities.

This class is for:

  • IT professionals who want to transition into a cybersecurity role

  • Anyone aspiring to get a security certification like CompTIA Security+

You need to have access to a Windows, Linux or MAC computer and install the tools that will be shown in the course. A Linux distribution has been created for cybersecurity and is called Kali. You can download it to get all the tools in one place.
