Interested in Pen testing and hacking? You want the CPENT

Feb 2020 by MARIA FORSBERG

A successful penetration test in an enterprise network requires the ability to attack, exploit, evade, and defend against threats. The EC-Certified Council's Penetration Tester (CPENT) program teaches you how to do this.

 

 

Live practice ranges like CPENT's will teach you to take your hacking skills to the next level by teaching you how to hack IoT and OT systems, how to write and build your tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot and also customize scripts/exploits to get into the innermost segments of the network.

It's not a computer game simulation; this accurately represents an enterprise network that presents the most recent challenges to the pen tester. CPENT range consists of entire network segments. There are numerous layers of network segmentation. The CPENT course teaches candidates how to navigate these layers. Once access is acquired in one segment, a candidate will know the latest pivoting techniques required for accessing the next.

However, the objectives and segments are progressive in nature, so once you get into one machine or sector, the following one will be considerably more challenging.

How To Prepare For The CPEN

A proctored examination is necessary for all online GIAC Certification tests. Remote proctoring is available through ProctorU, while PearsonVUE offers onsite proctoring.

Make An Index Of Your Study

Everyone approaches test preparation in their way. Making an index of the books you plan to bring is the usual technique to study for a CPENT exam because they are open book exams. Make a list of all the materials you will be needing at the exam center and arrange them according to how important they are.

Use Your CPENT Practice Test

Two practice tests are included in the cost of taking the CPENT exam. The CPENT website has an online version of these tests. Preparation for the real test is greatly aided by taking the practice exams.

You may expect the same style and time limit at the proctored exam center, and the practice exams will also provide you with feedback on the exam topics. Instant feedback on wrong answers is also available during practice exams. You can also test the quality of your index by taking a sample exam using only your index and books (no internet).

Examine the CPENT Exam Syllabus, Format, And Question Types To Prepare For The Exam

Make an effective study strategy by obtaining official information regarding the exam's syllabus and format. You can prepare for the CPENT exam with the help of this information. To avoid wasting time, focus only on material likely to appear in the exam.

Prepare for the CPENT Exam By Conducting A Self-assessment

GIAC Certified Penetration Tester study time is limited, so plan your daily schedule accordingly. To prepare for the GPEN exam, sit quietly and work hard every day. Studying for the CPENT exam one morning and passing it the next day is not an option. If you want to pass the CPENT test the first time, you need to study every day, or alternatively join a 5-day instructor-led programme:
