Workshop: SE Pentest Track

This three-day track takes you through the process of conducting 3 of the main aspects of a remote SE Pentest. Due to the nature of what we are doing during this class, there is very limited seating and this class is capped off at 25 people. Each day builds on the next so it is required to attend all three days, and is not a la carte.

Day 3:  Phishing

Considered the most used and deadliest vector for all social engineering attacks, it is critical you understand all aspects of phishing.

You will learn:

  • What is phishing?
  • The psychology of phishing
  • How to set up a corporate phishing program
  • Using all the data from days 1 and 2 you will develop 4 levels of a single phish against your target

At the end of this course, those who graduate will be given a certificate of passing if they can accomplish all 3 days of work while remaining within the boundaries and the rules of the class
