This Certified Penetration Testing Engineer Training (CPTE) course/certification has been validated by the NSA for CNSSI-4013, National Information Assurance Training Standard for System Administrators.
CPTE’s foundation is built firmly upon proven hands-on Penetration Testing methodologies as utilized by our international group of vulnerability consultants. ENO Security trainers keep abreast of their expertise by practicing what they teach; we believe that an equal emphasis on theoretical and real-world experience is essential for effective knowledge transfer to you, the student.
The CPTE presents information based on the 5 Key Elements of Pen Testing; Information Gathering, Scanning, Enumeration, Exploitation, and Reporting. The latest vulnerabilities will be discovered using these tried and true techniques. This course also enhances the business skills needed to identify protection opportunities, justify testing activities, and optimize security controls appropriate to the business needs in order to reduce business risk.
We go far beyond simply teaching you to “Hack” – be prepared to learn penetration testing using advanced persistent threat techniques along with the highest level ethical hacking methodologies. This Certified Penetration Testing Engineer Training (CPTE) Workshop is based on current principles and methods used by malicious hackers. Learn to ‘hack’…live to protect.
