Ethical Hacker Career Roadmap: Databases

This edition of Ethical Hacker Roadmap aims to teach you everything you need to know about database security from the eyes of a white hat hacker. Database compromises are constantly occurring, so learning how to protect them from future attacks is an essential and ever important skill within cybersecurity.

If you’re looking at a career in ethical hacking, then its very important that you understand the technology behind databases and their role within cybersecurity. In the future, it may also be an area you choose to specialize in and could lead you into being a Database Engineer with an average salary of $81,049.

Protecting databases from attack is becoming more and more important in a world where data protection is taken very seriously, and personal data is so valuable. Countries around the world are implementing stricter laws on data protection, for example, the EU brought in the GDPR regulation this year.

Because of this drive for database security, companies are in need for tech professionals to ensure their databases are secure because data breaches can cost them a lot of money in fines and cause a serious hit to their reputation.

Learn by Example: HBase – The Hadoop Database ($18)

HBase is an extremely effective databasing tool for organizing and manage massive data sets. HBase allows an increased level of flexibility, providing column oriented storage, no fixed schema, and low latency to accommodate the dynamically changing needs of applications. With the 25 examples contained in this course, you’ll get a complete grasp of HBase that you can leverage in interviews for Big Data or cybersecurity positions.
