IEEE Computer Society Launches The Art of Hacking, Industry's First e-Learning Hacking Course

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., and CAMBRIDGE, England, July 28, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Today the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS) and NotSoSecure, a leading UK-based Penetration Testing and Hacking Training company, join forces to launch the industry's first combined e-learning and true skills-based Hacking Course, The Art of Hacking.

Further to the cybersecurity training partnership of IEEE CS and NotSoSecure announced in March 2016, The Art of Hacking course is comprised of both Web and Infrastructure hacking training, and teaches a student to "think like the enemy", in order to anticipate next moves and stay ahead of new cybersecurity threats to help secure their defense perimeter.

The course features hands-on labs that test a student's skills, with engaging "hands-on" exercises, and Real-World Labs comprising over 75% of the course time.  The course and labs will be kept current with exercises based on real-world attack and exploitation examples and certification may be achieved by completing the Art of Hacking "Capture The Flag" 1-day (CTF) examination.

The Art of Hacking Course will be offered as a featured course at BlackHat 2016, Booth # BHB10 located on BlackHat Blvd. The course will be available for sale on July 29, 2016, and the Infrastructure component will be featured at Black Hats training beginning July 30 through August 2, 2016. The follow-on certification for this course will be available on 31 October 2016.

Features of The Art of Hacking Online Course and Real-World Lab:

  • Five modules for full course – three of infrastructure hacking and two of web hacking
  • Certifications can be achieved based upon demonstrated skill level – Art of Hacking Ninja and Art of Hacking Master
  • The real heart of the classes (75%) is the unmatchable HackLab where students get hands-on training and practice in the newest, most pertinent hacking techniques
  • Classes also include 25% assessment, teaching and testing knowledge of the subject
  • All the newest cases, threats, hacks, and intrusions are continuously added to the HackLab to allow students to match themselves against the latest threats
  • Students have up to six months to complete e-learning, and an additional six months for certification
  • Penetration testing by the experts at NotSoSecure can be added to the course for assessment and validation of company defenses and team's success in thwarting attacks.
