Module 11: Testing the Infrastructure

What You’ll Learn

This is where we actually test the system which we do by threat detection, social engineering, attacking websites, and attacking mobile applications. We also cover the risk, vulnerability impact and privacy issues.


In this module we will take a look at all the practical applications of attacking your own infrastructure to help defend it. We will teach you how to identify your organizations own weaknesses such that you can help mitigate weaknesses and help define what changes need to be made.
