Cybersecurity – System vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks

The CyberSecurity - System vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks training course allows you to test and understand the main security breaches on networks and IT systems.
Its goal is to learn the cyber threats and use the common 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 :

  • The juridical aspects of cyberattacks
  • Networks penetration methods
  • Network scanning techniques
  • Techniques to assess vulnerabilities
  • Intrusion and attack methods
  • Network exploitation techniques
  • Password attack techniques
  • Web and WiFi attack techniques
  • Common hardening rules to apply
