Training program

CompTIA PenTest is a certification for cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with identifying, exploiting, reporting, and managing vulnerabilities on a network. PenTest assesses the most up-to-date penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment and management skills necessary to determine the resiliency of the network against attacks. Successful candidates will also have the skills required to customize assessment frameworks to effectively collaborate on, report findings, and communicate recommended strategies to improve the overall state of IT security.

Topics covered:

  • Newer techniques for pen-testing an expanded attack surface
  • Emphasis on demonstrating an ethical hacking mindset given various scenarios
  • More focus on the hands-on tasks and automation required for vulnerability management
  • More focus on code analysis to emphasize the growing need to identify and analyze code during a penetration test (Note: Code development is not included on CompTIA PenTest+)
