On this accelerated five day EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) course, you’ll learn to specialise in penetration testing. This interactive and hands-on course utilises EC-Council iLabs, giving you the skills to conduct penetration tests simulating a real-world security environment. You’ll put these skills into context, learning how to use them to protect and defend your business.

The penetration testing skills you’ll learn apply to a wide variety of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments. Using Firebrand’s unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique your expert instructor will immerse you in learning the most up to date attack vectors like SQL injection, XSS, CSRF and DoS. Modules you’ll cover will include:

  • Vulnerability Analysis
  • SQL Penetration Testing Methodology
  • Database Penetration Testing Methodology
  • Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology

You’ll also be prepared for the ECSA exam and skills based competency penetration test and report assessment, which you’re required to submit to EC-Council - and pass - prior to being eligible to sit the ECSA exam. A trial run of this process will be included as part of your accelerated course. You will not sit the ECSA exam as part of this course.

This ECSA course goes beyond the process of penetration testing, also teaching you how to complete a penetration testing report and to adopt the mind-set of a quality penetration tester – always curious to investigate and discover any potential security threat.
