CompTIA PenTest+


Course Description

CompTIA PenTest+ is a certification for intermediate skills level cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with hands-on penetration testing to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network. PenTest+ is unique because our certification requires a candidate to demonstrate the hands-on ability and knowledge to test devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers.

• Conduct information gathering using appropriate techniques

• Perform a vulnerability scan.

• Analyse vulnerability scan results

• Explain the process of leveraging information to prepare for exploitation.

• Explain weaknesses related to specialised systems

• Compare and contrast social engineering attacks

• Exploit network-based vulnerabilities

• Exploit wireless and RF-based vulnerabilities

• Exploit application-based vulnerabilities

• Exploit local host vulnerabilities

• Summarise physical security attacks related to facilities

• Perform post-exploitation techniques

• Use Nmap to conduct information gathering exercises

• Compare and contrast various use cases of tools

• Analyse tool output or data related to a penetration test

• Analyse a basic script (limited to Bash, Python, Ruby, and PowerShell) Reporting and Communication

• Use report writing and handling best practices

• Explain post-report delivery activities

• Recommend mitigation strategies for discovered vulnerabilities

• Explain the importance of communication during the penetration testing process
