Penetration Testing and Hacking

Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or Web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.

This hands-on training course is designed to teach the participant to become a penetration tester and to conduct hacking in an ethical manner. As security personnel, it is your responsibility to find the system vulnerabilities and weaknesses before they are exploited by the unethical hacker and implement countermeasures.
