Taught by an expert in information technology and cybersecurity with over 20 years of experience, this course is a fun way to learn what you need to know to pass the CompTIA Pentest+ (PT0-001) exam or to better prepare yourself to serve on your organization's cyber defense team or as an independent penetration tester.
The CompTIA Pentest+ (PT0-001) certification is an intermediate-level vendor-neutral certification that validates your knowledge and ability to plan/scope an assessment, understand the legal/compliance requirements, perform vulnerability scanning/penetration tests, and analyze/report on your findings. This certification was released on July 31, 2018 by CompTIA to fill a gap between the foundational-level CompTIA Security+ exam (for those with about 1 year in the field) and the advanced-level CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (for those with at least 5 years in the field). The CompTIA Pentest+ (PT0-001) exam is focused on the technical, hands-on details of the cybersecurity field, including how to emulate a cyber threat, infiltrate a secure network architecture, and conduct a penetration test against your organizational networks (with permission, of course).
This course is designed for penetration testers, IT Security analysts, vulnerability analysts and testers, network security operations personnel, or anyone who is trying to get a better understanding of the concepts involved in conducting a penetration test and its associated toolsets.
The CompTIA Pentest+ (PT0-001) exam covers FIVE domains:
15%: Planning and Scoping
22%: Information Gathering and Vulnerability Identification
30%: Attacks and Exploits
17%: Penetration Testing Tools
16%: Reporting and Communication
** Each video lecture comes with a downloadable PDF of all the lecture notes for your offline study needs **
