  • What will you learn by taking this course?

    Advanced Windows Attacks

    This zone contains a complete forest that you first have to gain access to and then use PowerShell and any other means to execute Silver and Gold Ticket and Kerberoasting. The machines will be configured with defenses in place meaning you to have to use PowerShell bypass techniques and other advanced methods to score points within the zone.

    Attacking IOT Systems

    CPENT is the first certification that requires you to locate IOT devices and then gain access to the network. Once on the network, you must identify the firmware of the IOT device, extract it, and then reverse engineer it.

    Writing Exploits: Advanced Binary Exploitation

    Finding flawed code is a skill competent pen testers need. In this zone you will be required to find the flawed binaries then reverse engineer them to write exploits to take control of the program execution. The task is complicated by the requirement of penetrating from the perimeter to gain access then discover the binaries. Once that is done you have to reverse engineer the code. Unlike other certifications, CPENT includes 32 and 64 bit code challenges and some of the code will be compiled with basic protections of non-executable stacks. You must be able to write a driver program to exploit these binaries, then discover a method to escalate privileges. This will require advanced skills in binary exploitation to include the latest debugging concepts and egg hunting techniques. You are required to craft input code to first take control of program execution and second, map an area in memory to get your shell code to work and bypass system protections.

    Pentesting Operational Technology (OT)

    The CPENT range contains a zone that is dedicated to ICS SCADA networks that the candidate will have to penetrate from the IT network side and gain access to the OT network. Once there, you will have to identify the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and then modify the data to impact the OT network. You must be able to intercept the Mod Bus Communication protocol and communication between the PLC and other nodes.

  • WHAT IS PENETRATION TESTING?

    Cybersecurity is of utmost importance in this digital world. Companies carry out comprehensive security testing to assess the current security posture of their organization. Penetration Testing also referred to as Pen Testing, means carrying out security tests to check whether the systems can be penetrated by malicious attackers. It requires carrying out simulated attacks on computer systems, networks or web applications with the specific objective to expose security weaknesses/ vulnerabilities that are likely to be exploited by attackers. Pen Testing insights are useful for developing a strategy to plug the security loopholes. The CPENT Training Course provides you the necessary knowledge & skills to become an expert Penetration Tester.

  • WHAT IS THE ROLE OF PENETRATION TESTER?

    Penetration Testers are cybersecurity personnel authorized to carry out rigorous testing on computer systems to expose the weakness in the security systems and suggest measures on how to minimize the risk.  The job of a Penetration Tester involves a range of activities like:

    • Determining the number & types of systems to be tested
    • Creating Penetration testing methods, scripts, and tests
    • Carrying out remote/onsite tests of infrastructure security
    • Simulating security breaches & test the system security
    • Creating detailed reports of security issues detected and level of risk
    • Providing recommendations on methodologies to lower or minimize the risks
  • WHY BECOME A CERTIFIED PENETRATION TESTING PROFESSIONAL OR CPENT?

    According to research by MarketsandMarkets.com the global penetration testing market size is projected to grow from USD 1.7 billion in 2020 to USD 4.5 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.8% from 2020 to 2025.

    Thus it is quite evident that there will be an increasing demand for penetration testers in the coming years. Certified professions gain precedence during the hiring process as they have in-depth knowledge of types, phases, tools, techniques of penetration testing. Becoming a certified penetration tester thus provides a competitive edge and improves the chances of obtaining higher salaries and promotions
