Counter cyber-attacks more effectively by adopting the mindset and simulating the actions of an attacker
Dates

  • TBA

Time

9.00am – 5.00pm

Duration

9 Days

Course Overview

Organisations are investing in cybersecurity solutions and strategy. However, the only way to ensure these are functional is by testing them. Therefore, skillful pen-testers who can simulate attacks and determine ways to infiltrate the network undetected are needed.

In this module, participants will learn about the cyber kill chain and practice using it through a series of steps and components.

Participants will analyse case studies and, most importantly, understand the attacker’s mindset and way of thinking. An analyst who can think like an attacker can better identify possible weaknesses, spot anomalies, define alerts and understand the attacker’s behavior during investigation.

Learning Outcomes

With a good understanding of the attacker’s mindset and the possible actions the attacker might take, cybersecurity analysts will be better equipped to identify the actions taken by the attacker during an investigation and more quickly locate the attacker’s assets.

This course will teach the learner to be an active member of the red team and look for vulnerabilities in the network.

The course will teach learners on:

  • Mastering the network kill chain
  • Obtaining a deep understanding of each of the attacker’s steps
  • Gaining practical experience in attack tools and techniques
  • Obtaining familiarity with case studies
  • Understanding the attacker’s mindset

Topics

  • Cyber kill-chain
  • External reconnaissance
  • Initial compromise (credentials, hashes, client-side exploits)
  • Initial reconnaissance
  • Initial foothold (privilege escalation, persistence)
  • Lateral movements (fingerprinting, pivoting)
  • Establish foothold (command and control, multi-staging)
  • Network/endpoint evasion
  • Protocol vulnerabilities

Who Should Attend

  • Cyber Security Analyst
  • Red Team member

Prerequisite

  • Python programming experience
  • Networking experience
  • Operating system experience

Course Highlight

This course provides significant hands-on experience with real life case studies. Techniques and tools taught are immediately useful in your day-to-day work.

Insight from Instructor

“A talented pen tester could simulate a potential attacker and find possible threats, holes and security breaches. Thanks to the pen testers work, the security team could cover those breaches and better protect the network.

This course will cover the entire cyber kill-chain, the students will gain hands on experience with the different parts of an attack and will practice the attacker’s mind set.

With the technical skills and with the attacker’s thinking and point of view, the analysts could better assess the network and find security threats real attackers might use.”
