Advanced Ethical Hacking Training Boot Camp

Take your penetration testing skills to a new level! The industry’s most advanced ethical hacking training teaches you how to orchestrate and defend against advanced persistent threats (APT) attacks.

Become a Certified Expert Penetration Tester, guaranteed!

Boot camp overview

Modern networks and systems are fully patched, hardened from attack and armored to the hilt with expensive security gear — but the bad guys still get in on a daily basis! How do they do this?

Infosec’s Advanced Ethical Hacking Boot Camp will teach you how to successfully attack fully patched and hardened systems, circumvent common security controls and access confidential data. You’ll bring this knowledge back to your organization so you can formulate ways to defend against these sophisticated attacks. By learning how to fully utilize zero-day attacks that replicate an APT attack, you become an extremely valuable member of any penetration testing team. This course also supports and prepares you for the Certified Penetration Tester (CPT) and Certified Expert Penetration Tester (CEPT) exams.

Hands-on labs

Hundreds of exercises in over 30 separate hands-on labs bring you up to speed with the latest threats to which your organization is most vulnerable. Practice penetration testing in our virtualized environment that simulates a full range of servers and services used in a real company. Learn how to compromise web servers, virtual machines, databases, routers and firewalls, and then put it all together in an unscripted evening Capture the Flag (CTF) exercise.

Nightly capture the flag exercises

CTF exercises are an opportunity for you to practice your hacking skills in a real-world environment. Infosec sets up a mock company that you can freely attack without having to worry about damaging production systems. The purpose of the CTF exercises is to ensure you understand how to apply the skills you learned during the day to a real-world, ethical hacking scenario.
