Cyber Security

GhostWire Academy's cyber security course introduces basic programming in order to develop, design & construct common exploits. The course will then cover basic network analysis techniques that enable the detection of vulnerabilities that could make a system, or network of systems, vulnerable to those exploits.

The objective of this course is to teach students how to discover vulnerabilities in systems, or a network of systems, so that students will better understand how to defend their systems from exploits.
