You’ve secured your systems, trained your users, and fortified your network. Think you’re ready to handle a cybersecurity threat? Penetration testing is one of the best ways to see if your security will hold. It puts testers in the role of attackers, looking for vulnerabilities in your networks, computers, applications, email, and users. This course provides an introduction to the key knowledge and skills to start a program of professional penetration testing at your organization.
Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore reviews popular pen testing tools, as well as the Bash and Python scripting skills required to be able to acquire, modify, and re-use exploit code. He also provides a refresher on the Kali Linux penetration testing toolbox, approaches to web testing, and several important facets of exploit code. At the end of this course, you’ll be prepared to take more advanced training and to pursue the popular Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification.
