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.
