Focal Point - Hacker Methodologies Security Professional

New – Hacker Methodologies for Security Professionals teaches you the processes threat actors use to break into organizations’ networks and steal their most sensitive data. Utilizing industry-standard penetration testing and auditing software, you will learn to identify, scan, and enumerate target systems; correlate services to vulnerabilities and exploits; employ exploits to gain access to the target systems; elevate privileges; propagate through the network; and cover their tracks within a target network. This course is focused primarily on Linux and Windows operating systems, so students should be comfortable with both.
