Cyber Security Training
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Security remains one of the hottest topics in IT and other industries. It seems that each week brings news of some new breach of privacy or security. As organizations scramble to protect themselves and their customers, the ability to conduct penetration testing is an emerging skill set that is becoming ever more valuable to the organizations seeking protection, and ever more lucrative for those who possess these skills. In this course, you will be introduced to some general concepts and methodologies related to pen testing, and you will work your way through a simulated pen test for a fictitious company.

This course can also assist you if you are pursuing the CompTIA PenTest+ certification, as tested in exam PT0-001. The course is designed to provide content and activities that correlate to the exam objectives, and therefore can be a resource as you prepare for the examination.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

After you complete this course, you will be able to plan, conduct, analyze, and report on penetration tests. You will:
  • Plan and scope penetration tests.
  • Conduct passive reconnaissance.
  • Perform non-technical tests to gather information.
  • Conduct active reconnaissance.
  • Analyze vulnerabilities.
  • Penetrate networks.
  • Exploit host-based vulnerabilities.
  • Test applications.
  • Complete post-exploit tasks.
  • Analyze and report pen test results.

Certification exams are administered by third party testing companies such as Pearson Vue or Prometric. Our courses prepare you for the certification exam, which is an additional fee paid to the testing provider. You must contact Prometric, Pearson Vue or the corresponding testing provider to take a certification exam.
