Why should you take the course?
This course is based on real experiences using Nmap in security tests on a huge variety of networks. I've been using Nmap for years as a systems administrator and now as penetration tester. I am constantly assessing networks and trying to find the hosts and systems that in networks that I've never seen before. I may have a week to go through a network with the possibility of tens of thousands of hosts and no documentation available to me. Because of this, I've had to learn how to get the most out of Nmap and do so in a way that does not disrupt my clients' networks. This is the experience that I am sharing with you in this course!
