Course Overview

Is it for me?

The routine, operational demands of a busy cybersecurity and IT department can often get in the way of good security strategy and leave you with little time to prepare for the decisions that really matter. If this sounds like your day-to-day, join this short, hands-on experience. It’s designed to take you temporarily out of the ring and put you into the minds of those targeting your organization so you can adopt a more calculated approach. Plus, you can get your hands dirty with our popular virtual labs and learn from experienced, practicing Penetration Testers with a legacy of training at Black Hat as you do it.
