From a beginner to intermediate
penetration tester in 4 days
First two days

The first two days will give beginners everything they need to get started, from introductory concepts right through to immersive hands-on real exploitation. You will have a good grasp of how vulnerabilities and exploits work, how attackers think about networks and systems and you will have compromised several of them from infrastructure to web applications to WiFi.

The last two days are all about compromising companies through their infrastructure. It will continue the journey from learning about an organisation right through to exploitation of their critical infrastructure to then, analyse the trails that attackers leave when compromising assets.

It's not necessary, but ideally, some technical background will help, in particular experience with the windows or linux command line. However, we're used to meeting students at their level.

At a minimum, students need a computer with a web browser they are comfortable using. As all the practicals are hosted in the cloud, and the class web portal is used to deliver content. If possible, students should bring a laptop with Kali Linux either installed or running in a VM under a user with administrative rights. This lets students set up their environment to take home with them, and can make the course a little more comfortable.

  • Access to our web class portal containing slides, practicals, walkthroughs and tools and prerequisites. This is accessible after the training.
  • Access to your own individual lab with numerous targets and capabilities, used for the practicals.
