Course Description

Can you become an industry accepted security professional? Will organizations hire you to help them protect their systems? Do you have any knowledge in applying a suitable methodology to conduct a penetration test for an enterprise client? Do you have any experience writing a custom penetration testing report?

More importantly, do you have a globally recognized certification that can verify your penetration testing capabilities?

If you are the person above, what you may be lacking is the knowledge and experience to execute a successful penetration test according to accepted industry standards.
