Advanced Infrastructure Hacking
Our Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course is designed for those who wish to push their knowledge. Whether you are Pen Testing, Red Teaming or trying to get a better understanding of managing vulnerabilities in your environment, understanding advanced hacking techniques is critical.
This course teaches the audience a wealth of advanced Pen Testing techniques, from the neat, to the new, to the ridiculous, to compromise modern Operating Systems, networking devices and Cloud environments. From hacking Domain Controllers to local root, to VLAN Hopping, to VoIP Hacking, to compromising Cloud account keys, we have got everything covered.
Who should attend
System Administrators, SOC Analysts, Penetration Testers, Network Engineers, security enthusiasts and anyone who wants to take their skills to next level.
While prior pen testing experience is not a strict requirement, familiarity with both Linux and Windows command line syntax will be greatly beneficial and a reasonable technical understanding of computers and networking in general is assumed. Some hands-on experience with tools commonly used by hackers, such as Nmap, NetCat, or Metasploit, will also be beneficial.
The course is ideal for those preparing for CREST CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST and other similar industry certifications, as well as those who perform Penetration Testing on infrastructure as a day job and wish to add to their existing skill set.
Harden your organisation’s infrastructure and make it a less attractive target for attackers by building a team that can identify, test, and recommend remediations for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations throughout your environments.
Trained delegates can:
- Perform security testing that uses complex attack chaining across Windows (local), Active Directory, Linux, and common cloud environments
- Design this testing around real-world attacker behaviour and tooling to ensure its relevance to the threats facing your organisation
- Identify misconfigurations from network level to system level
- Understand the business impact of misconfigurations and vulnerabilities and articulate this to key stakeholders
- Implement logging and monitoring processes to detect live attacks
- Take on greater responsibility in the team and become an advocate of security in the wider business
During the course, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-art Hacklab which is hosted in our data-center in the UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab, accessed using SSH. So, you don’t need to bring any VMs with you. All you need is admin access to install the VPN client and once connected, you are good to go!
Attendees may optionally come prepared with an OpenVPN client (e.g. OpenVPN Client for Windows, we suggest Tunnelblick for Mac, the OpenVPN client is often included natively for Linux but may need installing/updating) and an SSH client (e.g. PuTTY for Windows, generally included natively for Linux/Mac) installed.
