Advanced Persistent Threat Tactics for Penetration Testing Extremely High Security Environments
Advanced Penetration Testing Training, or APT training, is an intense, hands-on training class that makes traditional pentesting training classes look like a Security+ class. The class was written by a conglomerate of IT security and security training’s most respected professionals. This team of industry professionals were looking to create a course that dissects the art of hacking and creates professionals who deeply understand the “why’s” of penetration testing / exploitation so that all traditional barriers can be broken.
Our most advanced penetration testing is a class where you will experience real pentesting in high security environments. The course is a three-day intensive that focuses attacking and defending highly secured environments such as agencies, financial organizations, federal organizations, and large companies.
APT Training Lab Demonstration
To get an idea of the type of hands-on material that we cover in our stimulating and fast-paced APT class, we’re sharing a hacking demo video with you! In this video, one of our Subject Matter Experts demonstrates how to use SSLStrip to obtain secure passwords.
In APT training, you will be learning how to attack new operating systems such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and the latest Linux servers. All of these servers will be patched, and hardened. Both Network and Host-based Intrusion Detection/Preventions systems (IDS/IPS) will be in place as well. The learning curve is high, but the rewards are astronomical.
