Become a Certified Security Expert with 98% off LearnSmart Training

In recent times, a number of big-name platforms have suffered from data breaches.

It points to the growing importance of online security, and demand for IT professionals with ethical hacking skills. If you have ever considered joining the industry, now’s a good time.

One way is to study with LearnSmart. This e-learning site has over 48 hours of training on security and “white hat” hacking, broken down into courses that prepare you for employer-recognized exams.

You can currently get a 12-month subscription for $29.99 through MakeUseOf Deals — here’s a closer look.

IT Security and Ethical Hacking Certification Training

The tuition is delivered through concise video lessons, starting with beginner-friendly basics. You work toward three exams:

  • CompTIA Security+ (new for 2015);
  • Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH);
  • and Cisco’s CCNA Security.
  • Along the way, you study passwords — how they are created, stored and cracked — and how to secure Windows systems against attack. You also get tutorials on the various forms of spyware, and how to take countermeasures, along with an introduction to keyloggers.

    With an investment of around 1-3 hours each week for six weeks, you should be ready to take the exams. Alternatively, you can learn at your own pace with this year-long subscription, streaming the videos via the web.

    Along with the videos, you can hone your skills with labs, games and activities, and a certificate of completion is included with each course.

    98% off for a Limited Time

    The complete course usually costs $1,895, but you can currently save 98% on the regular price. Enroll now to start learning!

    All sales are final.
