Hi, Micheal, In hacking, you need to understand fundamentals in networking, how it works and what it is? If you got some idea on this then you have clear picture of hacking as a first step.

Reconnaissance would be the first step in hacking.

Hi Michael, Hacking can be done in many ways. I would recommend starting with Networking and Linux Fundamentals before you go into the world of Hacking or Penetration Testing, or Vulnerability Assessment.

Information gathering should be the first step in hacking.

The first step allows time for the target; if you ask about in studies, the first step should be learning to use Linux.

Information Gathering is the first step in Hacking.

Thorough the fundamentals of networking; not entirely but few which are necessary.
