ECSA Qualified Security Analyst

Security University

Prerequisites and What to bring:
TCPIP and Linux, intermediate to advanced experience or education with security, testing, and vulnerability assessment, Windows and Linux. 1 year of IT Security experience.

The ECSA class is security testing and more. Certification, Process and Report Writing in 4 days.

The ECSA and LPT class is "how to test" and "how to report" to management network vulnerabilities. The ECSA class presented together with the LPT allows your team to spend 4 days and gain the tactical security skills to be a Qualified License Penetration Tester. The LPT labs from 5PM-8PM are separate from ECSA, you can stay and learn more - or go network with friends after the ECSA class ends at 5PM.

We use highly qualified SME instructors that know hacking and pen testing. This tactical ECSA class has MORE LABS focused on advanced vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, reporting and the knowledge to pass the ECSA test. You will gain the mind set used by both security testers and hackers alike. In 4 days, you will pass your ECSA exam and be prepared to write detailed and executive reports for management.

Each day you will spend 3 hrs in labs practicing how to gain access to unauthorized information with current exploitation tools and processes. Learn the tactical business skills necessary to perform valid security testing regardless of the architecture of the target network.

Course Structure:
This is a four-day course.

There will be 3 hours of optional hacking attacks every night in addition to ECSA hands on labs. If your taking the LPT Test you'll want to stay for these labs. Perform every stage of an actual security assessment/penetration test in a target rich, controlled classroom environment. Penetration concepts you will master during this hands on class...

Licensed Penetration Tester
Security University and Black Hat have been flooded with requests to include the LPT workshop "Test" at Black Hat USA 2007. This LPT "Test" is only available to ECSA registered attendees and takes place immediately after the ECSA exam on the last day of the ECSA class.

The LPT Test is an additional "workshop test fee" that lasts between 3-4 hours and is not a part of the ECSA class. The Black Hat LPT Test special will be $1600, 45% off the retail LPT workshop fee of $2,995 and is available only to those who complete the ECSA course at Black Hat USA 2007. The LPT Test will begin after the ECSA exam is completed in the same room. Pizza will be served to keep you focused on your targets. Don't miss this once in a life time opportunity to be one of the group to get your Black Hat LPT EC-Certification.

The LPT "Test" is gathering the documentation of the "LPT Test" target (information) and creating an executive and detailed report for management about network weaknesses, vulnerabilities and recommendations to improve risk. You will use your newly learned penetration testing skills (in teams) to escalate privileges and gather information on 4-6 LPT test boxes. After the 3-4 hours of gathering target information, you will take the documented information your team gathered and on your own, produce a complete Penetration Testing Report including an executive and detailed report for management to be delivered to your client, Security University by 12AM, Monday, August 6, 2007.
