In this intermediate security skills training, Keith Barker covers the essential penetration testing methods and tools.
There’s an interesting phenomenon happening in the offensive security and penetration testing field right now. Penetration testers are in high-demand, and yet penetration testing is still one of the hardest fields to break into. There’s a reason for that. Knowing how to use penetration testing tools isn’t enough. You also need an expert-level understanding of applications, networks, and hardware — and that takes time.
With that said, if you already have a few years of network, server, or systems administration under your belt, then taking this hands-on penetration testing training will give you a significant advantage over other candidates. While this security training isn't necessarily mapped to an exam, it's designed to give IT professionals an edge in their move to security.
After finishing the videos in this Penetration Testing training, you'll have an understanding of threat actors, attack methods, and penetration testing methods, such as white-box, black-box, and grey-box tests, and how to use Kali Linux tools for authorized penetration testing and vulnerability analysis.
For anyone who manages their security training, this security training can be used to upskill IT professionals into penetration testers, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a security reference resource.
