Do you want to be the next desirable IT security professional? Knowing the fundamentals of ethical hacking and network security will give you an edge over others!

Just in case you didn’t know what IDS, Firewall, and Honeypots are,  Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is an alert system to monitor any intrusion or suspicious activities. These would be reported to the administrator. In network security, firewall systems are used to control the traffic by filtering and blocking unauthorized access.

Honeypots, on the other hand, allows you to create an environment to see how attackers would behave. It is a deception technology to lure attackers so that we can study their pattern of attacks, and hence the name ‘honeypot’.
