Knowing how to hack is becoming a critical skill for managing vulnerabilities in your environment. If you’re not seeking out gaps in your network, someone else will be.

Check Point now offer a multi-part Hacking Point program, with courses ranging from those targeted at entry level beginners, to advanced level web and infrastructure hacking for more experienced testers.

The goal of this program is to provide students with deep knowledge in cutting-edge Cyber Security threats.

As a starting point for absolute novices, the one-day Hacking 101 course is a perfect entry level for students with a background in programming and networking who would like to learn more about the types of risks and vulnerabilities that can be found and exploited in corporate networks.

Once you understand the basics, the 5-day ‘Art of Hacking’ course offers those with moderate experience in system administration, web development or basic penetration testing, the chance to gain practical experience on real world infrastructure and web application scenarios.

You can learn the basics of infrastructure hacking and exploits; before moving on to specific Unix, Database and common application vulnerabilities; rounding part one off with a focused day on hacking the Windows operating system.

Part two of the course is the Web Hacking module, which demonstrates how hackers gather their information and build an attack using injection techniques, flaws, files and other hacks. Revealing how hackers can leverage weaknesses in common web platforms.

For those who already perform penetration testing on infrastructure and are looking to specialise, and anyone taking Crest CCT (ICE), CHECK (CTL), TIGER SST, and other similar industry certifications, there are two additional 5-day courses available.

‘Advance Web Hacking’ and ‘Advanced Infrastructure Hacking’.

These courses offer a much deeper dive into advanced identification and exploitation techniques used on corporate vulnerabilities, and includes real world examples of bug bounties, exploits and penetration testing outcomes seen by experts in the field.

Completion of the Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course helps to prepare you for the Crest Certified Tester (CCT) exam, there is also an optional examination for the foundation stage to demonstrate knowledge in both web and infrastructure hacking.

These courses are delivered by Check Point, in collaboration with ‘Not So Secure’ and can be taken remotely anywhere in the world.
