Cyber Security Penetration Testing

    About the Programme

    Offensive Security (also known as cyberwarfare / penetration testing), is one of the most fascinating technological aspects in the world cybersecurity. Aimed for the talented and creative, OS is one of the most important fields of the five core professions in information security.

    Pedagogically speaking, Hacking studies and PT studies are ironically among the most hacked fields in the world of cybersecurity. It is not possible to study this profession “as you go”, or by taking a short course.

    This unique profession has several characteristics: code skills, understanding of the basics of OS, networking, Linux, and most importantly: it requires the investment of many hours in deep and extensive learning, accompanied by a great deal of hands-on practice.

    This Hacking studies programme will teach you a lot more than just how to do SQL Injections. The programme is designed to transform IT professionals into offensive security personnel. It will train your SOC operators to look at things from a hacker’s perspective. Your web application testers will understand what other attack vectors they can use and, more importantly – how to communicate with businesses and stakeholders. Running a web application test is nice, but if your report and methodology do not exist you will end up no better than a Nessus or Accunetix scan.

    Here you will gain the knowledge, methodologies, and hands-on experience to enhance your cybersecurity skills and to advance your team’s capabilities to deal with real cyber challenges and threats.

    Itzik was my instructor at See-Security’s HDE course. This guy is the best. From his unique way of thinking, his knowledge and experience in the field, to his elegant teaching style – it was a privilege to learn from him! I felt as though my success was a personal goal for him, he is always there to give an advice, help, connect you to the right people, or just to motivate you. Though the course material was very good, the best part of it for me was Itzik. Thanks for everything!
