Script Kiddies, Kali Linux, Metasploit, Zero day Exploit and Co. are terms that have become more and more established in the media mainstream. Every day, black hat hackers develop thousands of new exploits to exploit vulnerabilities. Much is already being done to counteract the problem, but cybercriminals are becoming increasingly creative and rigorous. This makes it all the more important to ensure that IT networks are adequately protected. With so-called penetration tests, computers or networks are subjected to a comprehensive security check. The aim here is to identify vulnerabilities, uncover sources of error and ultimately increase security at the technical and organizational level.
As a graduate of the certificate course "Junior Penetration Tester" you have a special qualification in the field of IT security: the practical ability to take up an investigation of IT infrastructural vulnerabilities within a company.
This is realized through practice-oriented teaching and independent application of the learning content. During the course, the participants are in a specially designed E-LAB.
The Lab does not consist of a flat network, but contains different attackable, documented services, which are separated into several network areas by security systems. In addition to port scans and the various testing methods, the course teaches a cross-section of attack techniques, related to OSI Layer 1-4.
The Junior Penetration Tester offers a sound introduction to the technical component for identifying vulnerabilities. Building on this, we offer the Professional Penetration Tester and the Senior Penetration Tester. The advanced certificate seminars are more in-depth according to the learning content. In addition, the measures for preventing and closing IT infrastructural vulnerabilities are taught.
