EC-Council CAST - Advanced Penetration Testing

- Only 3 Days

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.
