Ethical hacking is the art of using these penetration testing techniques to identify and repair the latest vulnerabilities in a system to make sure it is secure. Malicious hackers use these same techniques to find the same vulnerabilities except they exploit the vulnerabilities giving them access to the businesses’ network. Once in-side, hackers can access private information, such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, and social security numbers of clients and employees.

It’s very likely this data will be held for ransom or sold off on a black market. Hackers are constantly looking for new companies they can exploit; when they come across yours, will they be able to gain access? Certified Penetration Testing Engineers are the solution to prevent this from happening to businesses they serve.

This course also enhances the business skills needed to identify protection opportunities, justify testing activities and optimize security controls appropriate to the business needs in order to reduce business risk.
The C)PTE’s foundation is built firmly upon proven, hands-on, penetration testing methodologies utilized by our international group of vulnerability consultants. Mile2 trainers keep abreast of their field by practicing what they teach; we believe that an equal emphasis on theoretical and real world experience is essential for effective knowledge trans-fer to you, the student.

Students will:
 Have knowledge to perform penetration test
 Have knowledge to accurately report on their findings from examinations
 Be ready to sit for the C)PTE Exam.
