As the cyber world grows, so does the requirement for security personnel. One of the best ways to test security is to breach it — it's often hard to find a hole until something passes through it. The people who do this type of work are known as ethical hackers, and they are in high demand.
Companies would rather have someone on their side breaching their security, rather than someone unknown or hostile. Maybe you've always fancied yourself a tech guru, or maybe you're just starting out. Either way, you're probably wondering how to get started down the path of cyber security.
Right now, Windows Central Offers has a fantastic deal on 12-month access to a 60-hour course from Vizual Coaching Academy. This package ultimately delivers training you'll need to pass five different ethical hacker certifications. The best part? It's going to set you back only $59 rather than the regular $1500. No, that's not a typo; that's a 95% discount. The certifications include:
- Certified Ethical Hacker

- Certified Information Security Manager
- Certified Information Systems Auditor
- Certified Information Systems Security Pro
That's five times the chance to get a high-paying tech job. Not too shabby!
