In this Penetration Testing training course you learn how hackers compromise operating systems and evade antivirus software. You will learn to discover weaknesses in your own network by using the same mindset and methods as hackers. You then acquire the skills to test and exploit your defenses and implement countermeasures to reduce risk in your enterprise.
