OBJECTIVE OF HANDS-ON LABORATORY SCENARIOS

This is an intensive hands-on class. Students may spend 20 hours or more performing labs that walk them through a real world Pen Testing model. Labs begin with simple activities and move on to more complex procedures. During labs, students move through a detailed Lab Guide containing screen shots, commands to be typed, and steps students should take. Students will make use of scores of traditional and cutting edge Pen Testing tools (GUI and command line, Windows and Linux) as they make their way through Mile2’s time-tested methodology. Students can be confident that as new methods arise in the security world; our labs are updated to reflect them.
