One-day sale: Become an ethical hacker with this online course

The next big tech career.

15 NOV 2016

As internet security becomes more important - and challenging - than ever before, companies are in need of experienced hackers to help them test out and improve their networks.

These people are known as ethical hackers, and there's big money out there for anyone who has the skills to point out vulnerabilities and fix breaches in a company's servers. Yes, just like in Mr Robot.

Our Become an Ethical Hacker Bonus Bundle has been one of our most popular online courses on ScienceAlert Academy to date. So to get you motivated to increase your skills in the lead up to the holidays, we're running a one-day-only sale on the course.

The bundle of 9 courses is usually US$49, but is available for only US$25 until 11.59pm PST on Tuesday 15 November. 

(For those not on the west coast, that's going to be Wednesday 16 November. At 2.59am in New York, 6.59am in London, and 6.59pm in Sydney).

During the course, you'll learn the basics of ethical hacking, get familiar with Linux, and learn some of the lesser-known hacking methods. You'll also get advice on how to turn your hobby into a lucrative career.

The sale is strictly one day only, so if you've ever wanted to improve your hacking skills, this is your chance.
