Is your organization secure? In order to answer this question confidently, you need to perform testing to prove that it is indeed secure. However, not all security testing is the same. A risk assessment is not a vulnerability assessment; a penetration test won’t measure compliance. For a successful career, a security analyst needs to understand the many different types of security testing and know when and how to implement them. This course with security architect Jerod Brennen provides the resources you need to set up a testing environment, plan assessments, identify targets, and begin executing security tests. Jerod also helps you analyze test results and draft a report of your findings. Plus, see popular testing framework tools in action, including Nmap, Nessus, Wireshark, Lynis, OWASP ZAP, Aircrack-ng, and hashcat, as run on a Kali Linux virtual machine.
