Cyber Security And Ethical Hacking by Nyanabo(m): 1:33am On Jul 18, 2020
Hello everyone, I would be graduating in a few months time with a B.Sc in computer science and I would like to pursue a career in cyber security and ethical hacking.

Thing is I would like a good institute or academy where I could learn this while doing my NYSC.

Congratulations on your graduation!

^Somewhat vague. Do you already know where you'll serve or have a place in mind? What location are you considering?

This will help people to suggest or provide further guidance.

Btw, while you wait for your NYSC you can also take free/paid online courses.

Alright start from here:

Good thing is Cybrary has these courses free for the month of July.
These are mostly beginner courses so they'd be helpful. You don't have to take everything.

• Cyber Network Security https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/cyber-network-security

• Intro to Cyber Threat Intel https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/intro-cyber-threat-intelligence

• Adv Cyber Threat Intel https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/advanced-cyber-threat-intelligence

• Web Defense Fundamentals https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/web-defense-fundamentals

• Kali Linux Fundamentals https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/kali-linux-fundamentals

• CCSK https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/ccsk

• Microsoft 365 Fundamentals https://app.cybrary.it/browse/course/microsoft-365-fundamentals-ms-900

There are also other online resources I can proffer if you're interested in exploring more. Let me know.

Well, maybe. But again with technology everything is literally online today. So even if you're enrolled at an institution you could be taking the classes online.

If you ask me I think the online classes/courses are preferable or much better.

There are couple of good learning hubs in Lagos, Abuja maybe anyone living around those places can suggest.

However, NewHorizon has always been a highly recognized tech learning institution and I believe they still are. They're available in the locations i listed above and even more. You can check their Cybersecurity outline here:

Let's see what others have to say.

Nyanabo,

Don't quote my above comment. The antispam bot is likely to ban you cos of the links. Feel free to mention me if you have any questions or comments.

VickyRotex,

Well save for the new horizon.

Hi, not sure why you are unable to view the links. I can access them on my end. I just tried launching them again, and the links work. Have you tried a different browser or device?

Also, maybe you can troubleshoot first by trying to see if you can access the Cybrary landing page (https://www.cybrary.it/)

If you can access that landing page, then I recommend you search for the courses, as those links should take you directly to the courses but since they don't try searching for them manually.

are they videos or ebooks and are they downloadable ?

They are video classes with note taking features that you can extract.

If you are looking for ebooks I recommend going to this thread, there are loads of Google drive with Cybersec resources. https://www.nairaland.com/4578961/cybersecurity-cobit-togaf-cysa-aws - thread landing page

https://www.nairaland.com/4578961/cybersecurity-cobit-togaf-cysa-aws/4#89654600 - this should take you directly to one of the comment with google drive folders.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/179D_slEOLXWOTeFdmRrMkdV8C4DSLdYT?usp=sharing - For contents relating to Cybersecurity in general.

Let me know if you have any questions.
