CompTIA Penetration Tester+ (PenTest+) Certification

Course Overview

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.

Who Should Attend

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. Target students who also need to offer practical recommendations for action to properly protect information systems and their contents will derive those skills from this course. This course is also designed for individuals who are preparing to take the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam PT0-001, or who plan to use PenTest+ as the foundation for more advanced security certifications or career roles. Individuals seeking this certification should have three to four years of hands-on experience performing penetration tests, vulnerability assessments, and vulnerability management.

Course Objectives

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