Very organised and clearly presented. Great having hands-on experience with individuals ready to assist when help is needed

Delegate, Black Hat USA 2016

One of the best classes I have taken in a long time. The contest was on point and kept me engaged. I am new to Cybersecurity after 25 years in App Development and am very pleased with what I have learned

For security and IT decision makers

What’s the real impact of training your team through Claranet Cyber Security?

Start to build the skills and confidence within your team to harden your infrastructure and make your organisation a less attractive target for attackers. Trained delegates can:

  • Use industry-standard tools, like Nmap, Hydra, and Metasploit, to perform penetration testing against your infrastructure.
  • Find and exploit vulnerabilities in your infrastructure, including those that would lead to initial exploitation, attack chaining, privilege escalation, persistence, and more.
  • Identify and recommend remediations for common misconfigurations.
  • Understand and explain infrastructure-based hacking methodology for both Windows and Linux and tie this to attacks across the kill chain.
  • Adapt their approach for different operating systems.
  • Relate security testing and other offensive and defensive measures back to authentic attack vectors.

This is our entry-level infrastructure security testing course and also a recommended pre-requisite course before enrolling for our “Advanced Infrastructure Hacking” course. This foundation course familiarises the delegates with the basics of network hacking. A number of tools and techniques, backed up by a systematic approach on the various phases of hacking will be discussed during this course. If you would like to step into a career of Ethical Hacking / Pen Testing with the right amount of knowledge, this is the right course for you.

  • Introduction into infrastructure testing
  • Gain practical experience with the tools that will last you well into the future
  • Learn core infrastructure techniques
  • Leave with the basics so you can take your testing knowledge forward into our more Advanced Infrastructure topics

This course introduces the attendees with a wealth of hacking tools and techniques crucial in getting started in this dynamic field of hacking. The course begins with laying a foundation for everyone by discussing the basic concepts and gradually builds up to the level where attendees not only use the tools and techniques to hack various components involved in infrastructure hacking, but also walk away with a solid understanding of the concepts on how these tools work and therefore ready to face the real world.
