Internal Audit Training, IT Audit Training Courses, Information Security Training - CPE Interactive

Continuing Professional Education for Audit, Assurance, & Info Security

Course Description

In this intensive hands-on course, you will learn how to detect, assess, and exploit numerous CyberSecurity vulnerabilities that stem from improper software configuration, software inconsistencies, and design flaws within an overall network infrastructure and applications. You will also examine useful methods for uncovering wired and wireless network backdoors. Working through a series of hands-on exercises, you will discover the most common CyberSecurity mistakes made by vendors, administrators, and users, and master proven tactics for thwarting them.

You will discover methods for locating and confirming frequently exploited Web and other TCP/IP application vulnerabilities. You will get proven tips on building a powerful CyberSecurity testing tool kit using both freeware and commercial tool alternatives that will let you test for frequently exploited TCP/IP network and computing platform-specific security vulnerabilities. In addition, you will review a detailed analysis of a wide array of CyberSecurity testing tools for use on both Windows and Linux workstations.
