A&A Process, Vulnerability Scanning & Pentesting -$2000

If you ever wanted to become a Security Control Assessor, ISSO Support Analyst, vulnerability Assessor, Penetration Tester (Pentester) or if you want to learn offensive techniques to improve your defensive skill set then this course is for you. Whether you are new to cybersecurity or penetration testing or have zero knowledge this is ideal skills for you to have. Our Robust training course will guide you on the right path on what it takes to become a successful IT Security Analyst.
Regulations require that Federal agencies undergo a detailed and systematic security assessment process to demonstrate compliance with standards. This is known as the Assessment and Authorization (A&A) formerly called Certification and Accreditation (C&A). Due to increased incidence of cyber-attacks, private organizations are leveraging the cybersecurity standards set forth by the government to protect their assets as well as to be eligible to do business with the government institutions.

Imo-Tech Training will provide you with the needed training and exposure to prepare you for a role in this growing and demanding cybersecurity field. You will be trained on the process of Security Control Assessments (SCA), ISSO support processes, Vulnerability Scanning and Penetration Testing.
This course is focused on the practical side of the control testing, the vulnerability scanning and the penetration testing without neglecting the theory behind each section. You will first learn how to set up a lab (Kali Linux, Ubuntu, Metasploitable and Windows Operating Systems) and install needed software and applications (nmap, Nessus, Maltego, Metasploit and so on) to practice vulnerability scanning and penetration testing on your own machine.
Although challenging, you can still get through if you are new to cybersecurity. Along with working with classmates we also provide student handouts. The only hardware you will need is a laptop.
