Loads of Knowledge

This is a deep dive workshop on Active Directory services security, a must-go for administrators, security officers and architects. It is delivered by one of the best people in the market in the security field – with practical knowledge from tons of successful projects, many years of real-world experience, great teaching skills and no mercy for misconfigurations or insecure solutions.

This workshop will present you the critical tasks performed by skilled attacker or pentester against Active Directory and its key components. The course focuses on attacks and security of Windows identity solutions.

Exploits are not the only way to get to the systems! We will go through the operating systems’ builtin problems and explore how they can be beneficial for hackers! One of the most important things to conduct a successful attack is to understand how the targets work. To the bones! Afterwards everything is clear and the tool is just a matter of our need.

The workshop covers all aspects of Active Directory identity security from the hacker’s mind perspective! Our goal is to show and teach you what kind of mechanisms are allowing to get inside the infrastructure and how to get into organization. You will gain penetration tester’s knowledge and tools.

To get more practice we offer three extra weeks of labs online!

Our students say…

“All of their classes are based on their real world experience with the products, not just the typical Official Curriculum style classes that teach you things for an exam, but that you never use. You’ll find that all of the material you’ll lrarn in the class will be used, at some point, in your security career.”
