Overview

The EC-Council Centre of Advanced Security Training has arrived at Firebrand Training. This three-day Advanced Penetration Testing course is intensive, and focuses on attacking and defending highly-secured environments. You will learn what it takes to hack into some of the most secure networks and applications in the world.

Warning: This is not a beginner’s course. You'll spend 80% of the course in hands-on hacking labs, so you're expected to know how to hack many platforms and architectures. The course is right for you if you're a: security consultant, penetration tester, firewall administrator, system architect or system administrator.

You will learn how to:

  • Attack modern operating systems, such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Linux servers
  • Identify system vulnerabilities that can be taken advantage-of by a malicious intruder
  • Identify vulnerabilities that exist in an unpatched operating system
  • Breach the security of a network or system
  • Test intrusion detection and response capabilities
  • Analyse and address your system’s weaknesses, through penetration testing
  • Break into a highly-secured organisation from the 'outside'
  • Move around a network without being detected by IDS/IPS
  • Avoid common security features, such as: locked down desktops, GPOs, IDSs/IPSs/WAFs
  • How to 'pentest' high security environments, such as government agencies and financial institutions.

Note: this course doesn't include an exam, but you'll become Advanced Penetration Testing certified.

9x Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Firebrand Training has again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year Award, from a Training Partner network that has more than 700 training centres across 107 countries. This extends a record-breaking run of successive awards to nine years.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said: “The annual EC-Council Awards highlights the commitment and achievements of our global partners and trainers that have contributed to the information security community.”

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CAST APT courses
  2. You'll be CAST APT certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CAST APT trained in record time
  3. Our CAST APT course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CAST APT first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
