Network Security & Penetration Test

Customized. Innovative. Effective. Collaborative. Interactive.

Course Description

The goal of the ethical hacking and countermeasures program is to help the organization take pre-emptive measures against malicious attacks by attacking the system himself; all the while staying within legal limits. This philosophy stems from the proven practice of trying to catch a thief, by thinking like a thief. As technology advances and organization depend on technology increasingly, information assets have evolved into critical components of survival.


This course consists of the following modules - Ethics and Legal Issues, Foot printing, Scanning, Enumeration, System Hacking, Trojans and Backdoors, Sniffers, Denial of Service, Social Engineering, Session Hijacking, Hacking Web Servers, Web Application Vulnerabilities, Web Based Password Cracking Techniques, SQL Injection, Hacking Wireless Networks, Virus and Worms, Physical Security, Hacking Linux, IDS, Firewalls and Honeypots, Buffer Overflows, Cryptography, Penetration Testing Methodologies.


Security Officers, Auditors, Security Professionals, Site Administrators, Anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure
