How to Create a Virtual Hacking Lab with a Zero Dollar Investment

Needs a location

Ethical hacking is a term used to describe hacking done by a person/individual to identify the potential vulnerabilities or weaknesses in the system that could be exploited by a malicious hacker. Hacking without the knowledge and permission of the target is illegal. It is always recommended to set up our own lab and practice hacking. Just like any discipline, you need to practice, practice, and practice some more before you take it out to the real world.

Virtual machines and a virtual network are the safest and best bet when it comes to setting up a hacking lab. There are many virtualization systems out there, which include Citrix, KVM, Microsoft’s Virtual PC, Oracle’s VirtualBox, and Hyper-V, and VMware’s Workstation, VMware Player and ESXi.

In this meetup, we will show you the simplest and fastest way to set up a lab to practice your hacks before taking them out into the real world where any slip-ups could be devastating!

How do You Pass the CompTIA Security+ Exam in Your First Attempt

Link visible for attendees

CompTIA Security+ is the industry standard for validating baseline skills needed to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. CompTIA Security+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to meet directive 8140/[masked]-M requirements.

When you are getting started in your Cyber Security Career, it is tough to figure out where to start. The CompTIA Security+ is a vendor-neutral certification that deals with several key concepts in IT security, including networks, data and host security, threats and vulnerabilities, compliance, access and identity control, and cryptography. These skills will allow you to demonstrate that you know how to respond to incidents and mitigate risks before security problems occur.

In this Meetup, we will review the key things you need to understand and how to prepare for the exam.
