    Here are 5 steps I believe should be taken to becoming a successful Ethical Hacker. But understand that you have got to be very patient with this form of programming. Moreover, try not to do anything too stupid to get yourself caught up in Federal Violations of the Cyber Security Rights Act. Keep in mind that this does not come instantaneously, but rather over years of practice.
    Furthermore, this is not a detailed HOW-TO since a lot of methods are user specific. But rather this article is simply to help point you in the right direction to begin learning the art of Ethical Hacking and Programming.

    I truly hope this helps those who are not sure where to begin. I will put up more detailed articles regarding a lot of methods taught at the U.S. Army Cyber Warfare School. For now though, because I am literally new to this awesome learning institution online, I need to get myself started with the classes.

    5 STEPS THAT CAN HELP YOU START TRAINING TO BECOME AN ETHICAL HACKER

    STEP 1. Read up on Coding like C, C++ and Python

    LEARN how to code. C and C++ is a great starting point. So if you are a good learner, than it makes it easier to get to your end goal.

    STEP 2. Learn how to use the Command Prompt

    It is one thing to learn how to Code in C or C++, but what 90% of people who try to learn about Hacking and other forms of cyber programs like Cryptographic Algorithms, one must really learn how to use the Command Prompt. The command prompt is by far a powerful tool and one of the most important things to have intimate knowledge of in order to become a hacker. It will help a lot if you learn this at the start of Training.

    STEP 3. Act like a hacker but don’t brag about it

    This step is really about character and defines who you are as an Ethical Hacker. It is not crucial in hacking itself but you do represent ALL Hackers. Being a hacker does not make you out to be a Nerd or a Loser like the oblivious people out there think you are so do not act like one. Showing off to friends and family is great and all but talking about hacking 24/7 makes you appear lame and social awkward. Just be cool about it.

    STEP 4: After learning how to Program, HACK yourself

    When you learn how to program, the best thing to hack is yourself. Doing so can help you keep your system safe and help you learn how to hack other systems. It is especially useful if you have another computer like a Laptop to practice on along with your Desktop system or another Laptop. Just make sure the computer you choose to hack can only be accessed via VPN or closed Network as to avoid accidentally hacking someone else’s system. It has happened and the results were devastating.

    STEP 5: Communicate, Communicate, and Communicate

    Communicate with other hackers. This will help you get a good reputation among the hackers’ society and if you are lucky they might just teach you a few things while you are there. Of course this is what Cybrary is all about!

    Does anyone have a link for learning more about utilizing the command prompt? I know the basics of programming, and command prompt but I’m not proficient in either. I’m currently taking classes for C++. So if someone could help with the command prompt side I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Hey,

    Nice post! However, I’m going to recommend a few things.

    1.I recommend the following languages
    a. Scripting Language – Python, Ruby, etc.
    b. C
    c. Java
    2. CMD is a pretty useful tool, but I recommend to checkout powershell.
    3. I really like step 3!
    4. Yes, taking the time to research, deploy, and take down is a really good way to practice. For this, I recommend visualization. VMware Player is completely free.
    5. Document everything! Personal website, github, portfolio! Anything to serve as proof.
