Modern Wi-Fi Hacking
Wireless networks are the backbone of our day-to-day life. We all rely on them to provide us access but rarely ever think about the access we could achieve through compromising them.
Learning about modern Wi-Fi hacking can be a pain. Several new advances in Wi-Fi security have been released, along with some new attacks. But public literature still has lots of outdated material for technologies we rarely see deployed in the real world anymore. Numerous tools overly rely on automation, and leave you wondering when they don't work, because neither the fundamentals nor the underlying attacks are understood. Even worse, some popular attacks will rarely work in the real world.
Our course will change that and expose you to the fundamentals and the techniques used to approach and attack wireless networks to achieve real world compromise and overcome complexities.

Are you looking to leap into a penetration testing career and gain essential practical hacking skills? Then this course is for you!
This extremely hands-on course is designed to provide you with a complete overview and methodology to start a career in penetration testing. Our core methodologies are instilled throughout this course. You’ll be taken on a immersive journey into the day-to-day tactical operations of a penetration tester.
* Complete methodologies to conduct penetration tests
* Deep dive into the complete attack path of a real world attacker
* Fundamentals to continue a career in the security testing/ethical hacking field
The course starts off with fundamental security knowledge to provide you with a solid technical base to build upon. The attack model starts from an external perspective with the main objective of taking over an organisation. You’ll be exposed to open-source intelligence gathering techniques, external and web application hacking skills and working your way into an organisation, ending with advanced internal network compromises and objective completion. Throughout the course you will gain actual attacker skills and knowledge to apply in real-world scenarios.
This course is highly practical and will provide you with tools and techniques to achieve objectives through the course in our immersive online lab environment.

Practical Hacking Fundamentals
Start your journey into information security with a practical hacking course that will expose you to the technical fundamentals of penetration testing and security practises in the realms of networking, infrastructure, web applications and wireless technologies.
* How to think like a hacker
* Finding vulnerabilities and exploiting them
* How to approach a pentesting methodology in real world scenarios
This is an introductory course for those starting the journey into penetration testing or those working in environments where understanding how hackers think and the tools, tactics and techniques they use are of essence. Learn how to attack, and utilise the concepts to enhance your defensive understandings.
The course presents the background information, technical skills and basic concepts required to those desiring a foundation in the world of information security.
By the end of the course, you will have a good grasp of how vulnerabilities and exploits work, how attackers think about networks and systems, and have compromised several of them, from infrastructure, web applications to Wi-Fi.
This course aims to expose you to the methodologies used by active penetration testers on their day to day journey with clients and assessments.

Applied Web Application Hacking
Most organisations utilise web applications. Due to the exposed nature of web applications and complex business logic they contain, they are a valuable target for attackers. Throughout this course focus will be placed on the various vulnerabilities that could affect web applications.
This course will teach you how to analyse web applications for vulnerabilities and teach you how to exploit them in order improve your understanding of the inner workings and the associated risks.
Practical exposure to hacking web application will provide developers a deeper understanding of the potential threats and issues that could find its way into the development lifecycle and furthermore ensure that penetration testers are well versed with the discovery and exploitation of web related issues.
* Greater understanding of the risks associated with web applications
* A good understanding of the tools and techniques for examining web applications
* Practical skills to exploit a wide variety of web application vulnerabilities
We have been conducting penetration tests against web applications for nearly two decades have pulled out the most relevant and fun hacks we could find into this course.
