The VAPTX (Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Expert) course offers comprehensive knowledge and expertise on significant attack vectors. It provides hands-on scenarios to practice and execute these attacks.

The training delves deeper than simple scanning for easy vulnerabilities, focusing on modeling the techniques used by advanced attackers. Participants learn how to identify and exploit significant flaws in a target environment, as well as demonstrate the associated business risks.

This course is recommended for individuals in the following roles:

  • Penetration Testers
  • Network Security Engineers
  • IT Security professionals with a technical background

Will I Receive a Certificate?

Upon successfully meeting the requirements of the final practical certification test, you will receive a certificate as a “Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing Expert.” This certification will validate your expertise in the field and acknowledge your achievement of the VAPTX certification.

Course Content Overview:

The VAPTX training covers a range of practical exercises, including identifying vulnerabilities, pinpointing potential points of exploit failure, identifying data leakage entry points, verifying security controls, documenting and remediating vulnerabilities, and more. The course will teach you how to conduct thorough reconnaissance, exploit target systems to gain access, assess real business risks, and perform penetration testing on vulnerable target machines. Through these exercises, you will demonstrate your mastery of the subject matter.
