Cybersecurity – Advanced Pentesting

The « CyberSecurity – Advanced Pentesting » training course allows you to go deeper in pentesting security breaches on networks and IT systems. Its goal is to improve the Ethical Hacking techniques in order to assess the impacts and to ensure a better protection on systems against cybercriminality. The training methodology puts practice at the heart of learning to improve the acquisition of experience and knowledge.


Several hands-on exercises are performed through CYBELS Cyber Range platform, virtualizing information systems and reflecting realistic network architectures.
Each student has a pentester computer and their own IT System at their disposal on CYBELS Cyber Range.
He is able to access numerous equipment (PCs, routers, probes, firewalls, servers, proxies …).
The course also embeds feedback from Thales experience on Cybersecurity tools, devices, projects and solutions


After the course, the students know :

  • Network advanced scanning techniques
  • Techniques to assess new vulnerabilities
  • Intrusion and attack recent methods
  • Network exploitation recent techniques
  • Common hardening rules to apply
