The EC-Council's Certified Penetration Tester (CPENT) program is an engaging, informative, and expertly designed course that aims to help you master your Penetration Testing (pen-testing) skills. Recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE), this penetrating testing course offers a comprehensive curriculum that encompasses innovative techniques and methodologies for tackling real-world threat scenarios.
In this penetration testing certification course, you will gain an understanding of a wide range of topics, such as how to write your own exploits, build custom tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot to access hidden networks and customize scripts/exploits to penetrate the most secure segments of a network. Pen testing is a practice that goes beyond ethical hacking by incorporating elements of exploitation, risk measurement, reporting, and executive communication.
Securing advanced domains such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Operational Technology (OT), and Cloud has become increasingly more difficult for cybersecurity professionals as there is a shortage of expertise in this area, and CPENT ranges are dynamic and constantly evolving to reflect live networks' changing targets and technology. Expert penetration testers must continually develop their skills in advanced tools, techniques, and methodologies to conduct effective penetration tests in enterprise network environments and protect against current and future cybersecurity threats.
Enrollment in this course includes a voucher that provides prepaid access to sit for the certifying pen testing certification exam once you are eligible.
Note: We continually add new targets and defenses throughout the lifetime of this CPENT penetration testing course to ensure its relevance.
