In today's data-driven world, everything from addresses to credit card information is transmitted at the touch of a button. This means our data is at risk of being stolen by "black hat" hackers who break into networks for their own gain.

But not all hackers are created equal: enter the "white hat" hacker. These security pros work to strengthen company networks by exposing security flaws, then fixing them--and earning six figures in the process.

If you're looking to dive into the hacking profession, the IT Security & Ethical Hacking Certification Training Bundle will help you do it. Engadget readers can currently grab it for just $29.99—95 percent off the retail price.

Through 50+ hours of training courses, you'll learn all you need to pass the three most coveted security certifications. This training is designed to help you learn must-know skills and gain notice by top employers of ethical hackers: Pinterest, the FBI, and more.

The certifications covered in the course include:

Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)—Dive into the mindset of a hacker and learn how to identify system vulnerabilities, prevent unwanted network access, and understand malicious programs (everything from trojans to worms). The CEH certification is essential for anyone working towards a career in ethical hacking.

CompTIA Security+—CompTIA is the gold standard in IT certifications, and the Security+ certification deals specifically with cybersecurity. Develop the technical skills, knowledge and expertise needed to pass this widely-regarded, vendor-neutral certification exam.

Cisco CCNA Security—Master the skills to develop and manage an enterprise information security program. Adding this industry-recognized certification to your resume will only bolster your chances of becoming a highly paid IT security professional.

Snap this deal up while you can: the IT Security & Ethical Hacking Certification Training Bundle is available for a limited time only.
