ARLINGTON, Va., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyber security company, Lunarline, Inc., has launched a new course to provide Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing training to information technology and cyber security professionals. Vulnerability scanning and security audits alone will not ensure the security of an organization because they only test for currently known vulnerabilities with little to no analysis of how these vulnerabilities may be exploited. To ensure that systems are adequately protected, administrators must probe networks and assess the security posture for vulnerabilities and exposed surfaces while attempting to exploit them. Penetration testing fills a vital organizational need by confirming information security policies are both adequate and sufficiently implemented to protect against novel attacks.
This class has previously been provided to DoD customers and is now available to government employees and commercial customers alike. This 4-day Ethical Hacking course provides students with intermediate level training in hacking and penetration testing techniques. The training immerses each student into a hands-on interactive environment where they will learn how to scan, hack, and conduct penetration testing for the purpose of securing networks and information systems. The training course is instructor led by an experienced instructor and provides the students with practical exercises in the skills needed to test and protect today's sensitive networks and information systems. The course includes a combination of lecture and exercises and is designed around a virtual lab environment with scenarios that provide for robust and realistic hands-on experiences in dealing with a range of topic areas.
Lunarline's primary training facility is located in Arlington, VA. Lunarline also offers a mobile option to teach at a client site with as little as 6 students. For course descriptions, dates, and more information, visit www.schoolofcybersecurity.com or call Melissa Dawson at (571) 481-9307.
