Hands on Hacking: Become an Expert at Next Gen Penetration Testing and Purple Teaming 1st Edition Pdf Book Description:
Welcome to our book on hacking. We believe there aren’t too many books quite like this one. Yes, there are countless books out there about hacking (and information security, penetration testing, and so forth), but how many of those books give you everything that you need to start hacking your first computer systems, in a safe way, right from the get-go? Three labs are provided with this book—hacking sandboxes if you will that you can run on your existing laptop or desktop computer. By using these labs, you will be able to try out various tools and techniques the same ones as those used by malicious hackers today without risk either to yourself or to the outside world. We will show you exactly how to hack these systems using open source tools that can be downloaded for free. You do not need to purchase anything else to try all of the practical exercises that we have included. This book comes to you from the people behind Hacker House, a company specializing in online cybersecurity training and penetration testing services. Since its humble beginnings in east London in 2014, one of the reoccurring themes of Hacker House gatherings (we used to do a lot of meetups and events) has been how to properly identify talent and endorse cyber skills.
We wanted to understand how we could capture the rebellious spirit of hacking the one that causes hackers to question authority and the ways in which systems work. It was Jennifer Arcuri who first set about creating a company that could harness the potential of computer hacking and make it a usable asset for companies looking to bolster security, later joined by co-founder Matthew Hickey, who created content and technical resources to facilitate the Hacker House mission. It’s a rare day where there isn’t some big “hack” that costs a company millions of dollars in losses or where identities are stolen or some other data theft takes place. One of the biggest reasons why companies are failing at security is because they don’t have the right cyber skills on their IT teams. Even if they hire an outside consultant, there is still no guarantee that the missing patches and security flaws that have been pointed out have now been resolved and that the company’s data is indeed secure and protected from further attack. We wrote this book with a vision toward a better way of developing cyber skills. Training consultants to become well versed in theory hasn’t actually helped the landscape of attacks we are still thousands of jobs short for what is an industry that is growing faster than we can keep up with it.
