  • CompTIA-approved PenTest+ training programs
  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • Exam voucher included

You Will Learn How To:

  • Plan and scope penetration tests
  • Conduct passive reconnaissance
  • Perform non-technical tests to gather information
  • Conduct active reconnaissance
  • Analyse vulnerabilities
  • Penetrate networks
  • Exploit host-based vulnerabilities
  • Test applications
  • Complete post-exploit tasks

Who should attend this course?

This course is designed for IT professionals who want to develop penetration testing skills to enable them to identify information system vulnerabilities and effective remediation techniques for those vulnerabilities. In particular, students who also need practical recommendations for action to properly protect information systems and their contents. This course is also designed for individuals who are preparing to take the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam PT0-001, or who plan to use the PenTest+ as the foundation for more advanced security certifications or career roles.

 

How does this course differ from other Penetration Testing courses?

PenTest+ training includes management skills used to plan, scope, and manage weaknesses, not just exploit them. CompTIA PenTest+ testing assesses the most up-to-date penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment and management skills necessary to determine the resiliency of the network against attacks. Successful exam candidates will have the intermediate skills required to customise assessment frameworks to effectively collaborate on and report findings. The exam candidates will also have the best practises to communicate recommended strategies to improve the overall state of IT security.
