Overview

An Advanced Infrastructure Hacking class, new for 2019, designed for those who wish to push their knowledge. The fast-paced class teaches the audience a wealth of hacking techniques to compromise various operating systems and networking devices. The class will cover advanced penetration techniques to achieve exploitation and will familiarise you with hacking of common operating systems, networking devices and much more. From hacking Domain Controllers to local root, VLAN Hopping to VoIP Hacking, we have got everything covered. Latest exploits, highly relevant. Teaching a wide variety of offensive hacking techniques. Written by real Pen Testers with a world conference reputation (BlackHat, AppSec, OWASP, Defcon etc).

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

CPD points can be claimed for NCSC accredited courses at the rate of 1 point per hour of training for NCSC accredited courses (up to a maximum of 15 points).

Target Audience

The class is ideal for those preparing for CREST CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST and other similar industry certifications, as well as those who perform Penetration Testing on infrastructure as a day job and wish to add to their existing skillset.

Prerequisites

Whether you are Penetration Testing, Red Teaming, or hoping to gain a better understanding of managing vulnerabilities in your environment, understanding advanced hacking techniques for infrastructure devices and systems is critical. The Advanced Infrastructure class will get the attendees familiarised with a wealth of hacking techniques for common Operating Systems and networking devices. We recommend the delegates have completed the Art of Hacking course (QATAOH) before attending this course. While prior Pen Testing experience is not a strict requirement, a prior use of common hacking tools such as Metasploit is recommended for this class. Solid Linux skills and Windows OS knowledge is essential.

This course will be suitable for delegates interested in the SANS Institute course SEC560: Network Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking.
