CompTIA PenTest+ is a certification for intermediate skills level cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with hands-on penetration testing to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network. Skills covered in this training include:
• Planning and scoping
• Information gathering and vulnerability identification
• Attacks and exploits
• Penetration testing tools
• Reporting and communication
While CySA+ focuses on defense through incident detection and response, PenTest+ teaches you offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment. It’s important for cybersecurity professionals to have both offensive and defensive skills.
As with all PCATT courses, you will have hands-on experiences to learn skills. Professionals who have these skills have jobs as penetration and vulnerability testers, security and vulnerability assessment analysts, and work in the fields of network security operations and application security vulnerability.
CompTIA says their certification “is unique because our certification requires a candidate to demonstrate the hands-on ability and knowledge to test devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers.” Additionally, the exam measures management skills in planning.
The certification exam voucher for PT0-001 and study guide are included in this course. CompTIA PenTest+ meets the ISO 17024 standard.
