This lesson includes a video lesson and an Immersive Lab

Video Lesson

This video lesson looks at hackers and their strategies for breaking into computer systems. Now, not all hackers are are malicious cybercriminals intent on stealing your data (these people are known as Black Hats). There are also White Hats who hunt for bugs, close security holes, and perform security evaluations for companies. And there are a lot of different motivations for hackers—sometimes just amusement or curiosity, sometimes for money, and sometimes to promote social or political goals. In this episode, we are going to look at some of the strategies hackers use to gain access to devices.
