Overview

This course is designed for IT professionals who want to develop penetration testing skills to enable them to identify information system vulnerabilities and effective remediation techniques for those vulnerabilities. In particular, students who also need practical recommendations for action to properly protect information systems and their contents. This course is also designed for individuals who are preparing to take the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam PT0-001, or who plan to use the PenTest+ as the foundation for more advanced security certifications or career roles.
