code: C)PSH | version: v1

This C)PSH - Certified PowerShell Hacker course  is  an  intense  few  days covering   the   keys   to   hacking   with PowerShell. We    know    that    most companies  have  an  Active  Directory infrastructure that manages authentication   and   authorization   to most  devices  and  objects  within  the organization.  Many  use  PowerShell  to speed  up  and  simplify  management, which only makes sense. Did youknow that  a  large  percentage  of  hacks  over the   last   year   included   PowerShell based  attacks? Well they  did,  which  is why  we  spend 4days  learning  how  to hack  like  the  pros  using  nothing  but what   is   already   available to us   in Windows  or  now  in  open  source  code on Mac and Linux! The course is based on   real   world   implementations   of   a windows  infrastructure  along  with  real world  penetration  testing  techniques. You will leave with a real strong skill set to help test your windows environment like never before. An attendee will also walk away with a strong skill set on how to   help   prevent   these   attacks   from happening in the first place! Here are just a few things you will take away from this course:

  • Detailed Lab Manual
  • VMs for performing labs on your own
  • New ideas on testing your own AD infrastructure
  • Attacks you can use immediately
  • How to secure against PowerShell attacks

Upon Completion:

Upon completion, the Certified PowerShell Hacker candidate will be able to competently take the CPSH exam.
