If you ever wanted to become a penetration tester (Pentester) or if you want to learn offensive techniques to improve your defensive skill set then this workshop is for you. Whether you are new to penetration testing or have zero knowledge this is still the workshop for you. This workshop will guide you on the right path on what it takes to become a successful penetration tester.

This workshop is part of a collection of notes created during our primary instructor’s, Tyrone E. Wilson, time as an inspiring information security professional. For the last four years, Wilson has collected the necessary notes and transcribed successful tools and techniques. Wilson’s passion has always been to help educate others aspiring to also become successful information security practitioners. This Workshop is a small portion of that.

By no means will we be able to address all of the penetration testing topics, tools, techniques and methodologies in the allotted time. As always, it is up to you to perform the additional research and self-study in order continue and maintain a successful understanding of penetration testing. We hope you enjoy all the provided content and look forward to working with you in the future.
