In order to defend from threat actors, or hackers, as they’re commonly referred toit really helps to be able to think like one. That’s the goal of PenTest+. In this course, you will learn many of the skills hackers utilize to attack networks and computing systems. You will learn how to conduct penetration testing using the same skills, tools, and abilities that an attacker might use to exploit vulnerabilities in the computing and network environment. The only difference between a penetration tester and a hacker is permission. Our certified instructors will ensure that you understand: 

  • How to plan and scope a penetration test. 
  • How to conduct passive reconnaissance. 
  • Perform non-technical tests to gather information. 
  • How to conduct active reconnaissance. 
  • Analyzing vulnerabilities. 
  • How to penetrate networks. 
  • Exploiting host-based vulnerabilities. 
  • Test applications. 
  • How to complete post exploit tasks. 
  • How to analyze and report pen testing results.
