Certificate in Penetration Testing


The need for highly skilled individuals to harden systems as a security measure is paramount. This is due to the rising cyber incidents that are posing threats to business environments, different organizations, and even critical infrastructure affecting a country.


A penetration tester subjects a system or a range of systems to real-life security tests. The penetration tester can perform specified attacks in high detail depending on the objectives sought. Advanced techniques, tools, and utilities are used to achieve this by a security consultant. Generally, this exercise is aimed at evaluating the level and effectiveness of systems hardening to advise on the existing vulnerabilities.
