Alpine Security Introduces New Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking) Course

St Louis, MO, January 09, 2016 --( Alpine Security has released the 2016 dates for their new Intro to Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking) course. For a limited time, a $250 discount is being offered for the January 28-29 course. This penetration testing course is primarily hands-on. It is highly recommended for anyone seeking to learn penetration testing, preparing for the EC-Council CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) exam, or for cyber security professionals desiring to improve their skills and marketability by gaining exposure to hacker tools and methods.

Alpine's Intro to Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking) course is a 2 day instructor-led course focused on tactics, techniques, and procedures used by both black hat attackers and penetration testers (white hat hackers). The course starts with an overview of hacking incidents, trends, and attacker motivations. The course progresses to penetration testing methodologies. These often overly complicated methodologies, filled with an excessive number of steps, are simplified in this course with an emphasis on the penetration test objective. Each hacking phase of the simplified methodology is demonstrated, discussed, and practiced. Attendees practice penetration testing in a fun and interactive environment with multiple live targets and CTF (Capture the Flag) exercises.

The Intro to Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking) course is an excellent introduction to penetration testing. Emphasis is placed on learning, demonstrating, and practicing the primary tactics - reconnaissance (active and passive), vulnerability discovery and identification, exploitation, and persistence. Numerous methods are covered to include server-side exploits, client-side exploits, man-in-the-middle (MITM), and social engineering.

The 2016 dates for the Intro to Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking) Course are:

- January 28-29 (Th-F), 8am-5pm, 2016
