Certified Security Analyst Course & Boot Camp

Course Description

SecureNinja's EC Council Certified Security Analyst, ECSA training and certification boot camp is an advanced ethical hacking training certification that complements the CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) certification by exploring the analytical phase of ethical hacking. This boot camp is also taught by our very own ninja instructors available in Washington DC, San Diego CA, and Live Online. While the Certified Ethical Hacker certification exposes the learner to hacking tools and technologies, the Certified Security Analyst course takes it a step further by exploring how to analyze the outcome from these tools and technologies. Through groundbreaking network penetration testing methods and techniques, this pen testing computer security certification helps students perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the information security of the infrastructure.

This makes the Certified Security Analyst "Pen Testing" certification a relevant milestone toward achieving EC Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester, which also ingrains the learner in the business aspect of network penetration testing. The Licensed Penetration Tester standardizes the knowledge base for network penetration testing professionals by incorporating the best practices followed by experienced experts in the field.

The objective of Certified Security Analyst “pen testing” certification is to add value to experienced Information security professionals by providing computer security training that will help them analyze the outcomes of their Vulnerability Assessments. Network Penetration Testing Training leads the learner into the advanced stages of ethical hacking. 
Advanced Penetration Testing and Security Analysis
The Certified Security Analyst “pen testing” program is a computer security certification designed to teach Information Security Professionals the advanced uses of the available methodologies, tools, and techniques expected from a premier ethical hacking training and are required to perform comprehensive information security pen tests.  Students will learn how to design, secure and test networks to protect your organization from the threats hackers and crackers pose. By teaching the Licensed Penetration Tester, LPT methodology and groundbreaking techniques for security and penetration testing, this class will help you perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the security of your infrastructure.

The Certified Penetration Testing Professional (CPENT) was created by EC-Council to ensure the IT professional has the knowledge and skills needed to conduct penetration testing in an enterprise network environment that must be attacked, exploited, evaded, and defended across a broad spectrum of “Network Zones”. The CPENT certified professional will also know how to write exploits, build tools, conduct advanced binary exploitation double pivots to access hidden networks.

Yes, the CPENT certification is an advanced-level certification.

No, the CPENT is not an entry-level certification.

The CPENT certification is for advanced penetration testers who have the knowledge of ethical hackers and can apply penetration testing techniques

Yes, the CPENT certification is the next step after getting the CEH certification.  It’s also the first certification in the industry that assess multiple disciplines and not just one or two specialty types.
