Very impressed with the lab environment. Course is packed with Information and exciting challenges. Excellent Content and in-depth presentation. Loved the practice timing and walk-through. The extended lab access is helpful to practice after the class. Delegate, BlackHat USA 2018
This course was exactly as described. It delivered good, solid information on the current state of infrastructure hacking at the rapid pace promised. This was a great way to get back into this area after years away from it.Delegate, Black Hat USA 2016
Very excellent course, highly recommend even for those new to Pen Testing! Great work & EffortDelegate, Black Hat USA 2016
Compressing 4 days of material is very hard to do. I have to say that this class did it well. My brain hurts, not because the class was bad but because it was very, very good. The instructor was well versed in the subject and the assistance was effective. I really appreciate the "recap" after every section. Top notch. The course was exactly as described.Delegate, Black Hat USA 2016
It provided me with the latest Information Security research & developmentDelegate, Black Hat USA 2016
Took this course as the 4-day was full, and was prepared for a fast-paced nightmare! On the contrary this course was well planned for the timescales. Happy with the solution. Delegate, Black Hat USA 2016

Who Should Take This Class?

The course is ideal for those preparing for CREST CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST and other similar industry certifications, as well as those who perform Penetration Testing on infrastructure as a day job and wish to add to their existing skill set.

Student Requirements

The only requirement for this class is that you bring your own laptop and have admin/root access. During the class, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-the-art hacklab which is hosted in our datacentre in the UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab, so you don’t need to bring any VMs with you. all you need is to install the VPN client and you are good to go!
