Module 9 is here! Tune into Josue Vargas’s newest video – Certified Ethical Hacking: Denial of Service to learn about DoS and DDoS attacks and how to prevent them.
DoS and DDoS are disruptive attacks meant to bring a server or network out of operation. You might have seen some of this in the news, especially as related to hacktivism (people who hack for a cause). A DDoS attack can be a big financial hit on an organization. In this module you will learn how this type of attack is accomplished and even how it can be done stealthily. As an ethical hacker you will get the point of view of the attacker, as usual, but you will also learn how to protect your organization from this type of event using the right tools and strategies.
We’ve just added a new ISC2 course, The Systems Security Certified Practitioner.
The broad spectrum of topics included in the SSCP Common Body of Knowledge ensure its relevancy across all disciplines in the field of information security. Successful candidates are competent in the following 7 domains:
The Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) is the ideal certification for those with proven technical skills and practical, hands-on security knowledge in operational IT roles. It provides confirmation of a practitioner’s ability to implement, monitor and administer IT infrastructure in accordance with information security policies and procedures that ensure data confidentiality, integrity and availability.
Hi, my name is Gilad Gressel and I’d like to tell you about my new course: Deep Learning with Python.
Deep learning is an old technology that has recently been sweeping through the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Deep learning powers many of the cutting edge technologies that appear to be “magic” in the world today. Voice recognition, image detection, facial recognition, AI game playing agents (Dota, Chess, and Go), all of these are examples of deep learning in action.
You might be interested in studying deep learning simply because you want to know what the “magic” is, what the hype is all about. That’s a fine reason to take this course, but I urge you to dig a bit deeper. If you have ever stared at a bunch of data and known “there is a pattern here, but I can’t find it,” then this is the course for you!
In this course you will learn what is going on in a deep learning program, what it can do and what it’s limitations are. If you are wondering if you can apply deep learning to your field of expertise – the chances are that yes you can. If you simply watch the introductory trailer you will know what is required to make this work (hint: data).
This course is an introduction to deep learning. It assumes zero prior knowledge and has no prerequisites aside from the ability to code comfortably in any language. That said, we will be coding in Python, so you will either need to learn it (it’s easy) or already know it. I won’t assume you know much of any math, except what you would have learned in high school.
This is a practical course, although the course runtime is listed at 3 hours and 30 minutes, there is another 3 hours of additional video just going through code with you! To be clear – these are not boring “here is how you code this” videos, there are detailed experiments that will reveal what the different levers and knobs of a deep learning network actually do. All that extra course video is to help you learn how deep learning works.
In this course you will code your own image recognition model (for handwritten digits), predict housing prices and perform sentiment analysis on the IMDB movie database dataset. During all these exercises I will be helping you understand how your decisions will affect the performance of your deep learning models. I am going to help you understand what affects what when you build your deep learning models, and we’ll do this all in practical coding sessions.
I’m a mostly self-taught machine learning practitioner. I have published papers in machine learning applied to security topics, both in Europe and the U.S. My passion is to understand a topic deeply enough that I can explain it to my mother.
I sincerely invite you to join me in this course, we’ll explore this fun topic together and rest assured that you will succeed and have a great time.
Tune into Gabe Rivas’s most recent course release, Network Foundation Protection: Management Plane, the second in a series of eight CCNA security courses.

Learn in-depth information about social engineering techniques and countermeasures in the course Certified Ethical Hacker: Social Engineering, available as a stand alone download or with your INE All Access Pass!
When we think of hacking, we often picture a grim fellow opening a laptop, typing really fast and bam! he’s infiltrated the Pentagon. Watching those films when you know one or two things about system and network security is a hilarious experience! If you have been following the Certified Ethical Hacker series, you would know better by now. Hacking is not for the faint-hearted, not just because of the technical difficulty (indeed there are several needed skills to be developed), but because of the resilience needed. I’m talking about the fact that a successful hack comes after many failed attempts in most scenarios.
Because hacking into systems as an outsider is so difficult there’s a key toolkit that every hacker needs to master as much as they master sniffing, session hijacking, application hacking, or any other technical specialty- I’m talking about Social Engineering.
A highly empathetic person might have a hard time with the concept of Social Engineering. It’s pretty much abou abusing people’s trust and weaknesses, but if you think about it, a certain degree of empathy paired with a cold stomach might as well do the trick. The fact is, systems and their security will continue to evolve, but humans are still humans. From the old times when con artists would sell colored water at a fair claiming miraculous powers, to our modern social engineers convincing people to “download a security application,” few things have changed when it comes to human mind manipulation.
Statistics are shocking proof of this: more than 90% of total email traffic is malicious. According to TrendMicro 91% of successful breaches started with a “spear phishing” attack. In a study conducted by Frierich-Alexander University 78% participants clicked on a malicious link even though they knew about the risks of clicking on an unknown link sent via email.
Think about it, if you want to get into a network why spend countless hours building your penetration strategy entirely from the outside rather than grabbing the “low-hanging fruit?” The saddest thing is, people are the low-hanging fruit because of emotional factors such as: empathy, fear, laziness and insecurity. What makes us human also makes us vulnerable.
Because of the above facts, I’ve known hackers who spend a good amount of their time (myself included) reading psychology books to understand the human mind. This is an effort worth your time and something recommended to all security professionals.
There’s no real “patch” to guard people’s minds from attackers, but there are ways to minimize the risk. These ways encompass technical controls, policy controls and user awareness training. However, it goes without saying that even after investing in all of this, an organization concerned with their security needs to have proactive monitoring of their systems and network, and a good incident response strategy. If you’re a valuable target, chances are you’ll be Socially Engineered.
Do you want to obtain your CCNP Collaboration or perhaps enhance your Cisco Collaboration skills for the real world? The CCNP Advanced Technologies v1 course from INE is targeted at network and voice professionals who want to take their Cisco Collaboration knowledge to the next level.

When is not spending time with his family, he is dedicated to blogging and recording training videos around all things Cisco UC, as well as being committed to preparing for the CCIE Collaboration exam in the not too distant future. You can reach him on the social media platform of choice.
Security Concepts is an introductory security course, meant for those at the CCNA level. This 5 hour course is taught by Gabe Rivas and is a great prep course for those who are studying for the 210-260 IINS Exam.
This course is the first of an 8 course CCNA Security Certification Curriculum.At INE, We believe that breaking the course up into smaller topics makes it easier to manage and digest your learning experience.
In this introductory course, we will walk you through basic security concepts that are meant to build a solid network security foundation and help you dive into more practical and advanced topics. We will start by helping you understand the meaning of Asset, Vulnerability, Threat, Risk, and Countermeasure terms. Then we will break down the CIA triad and show how it helps organizations develop sound security policies. We will also cover monitoring tools that assist in detecting events in real-time as well as cover concepts about common security zones. As we move forward, we will cover social engineering topics, network attacks, different kinds of malware found in today’s networks, data loss, cryptography and hashing, and finally we will go over common network topologies seen in a LAN, CAN, WAN, DC, and SOHO.
If this was a single course covering the entire CCNA Security blueprint, the pre-requisite would have been the CCENT certification or equivalent knowledge. Since this is just a subset of the CCNA Security blueprint, for this specific portion you only need to have basic network fundamentals knowledge and basic knowledge of infrastructure devices. There is nothing really complicated as a pre-requisite here.
This course is great for anyone pursuing their CCNA Security certification. Regardless of certification achievement, some of the concepts covered in this course are useful to everyone that deals with computers and the more advanced concepts will be useful to anyone in the IT field, regardless of role (e.g. programmer, network designer, help desk technician). Security is not an aspect to take for granted and both, regular users and IT professionals, should have a bare minimum knowledge of common security practices.
Anyone interested in pursuing the CCNA Security certification or simply interested in gaining basic knowledge about network security.
