Don't Miss Out On Practical Cybersecurity Training at Black Hat USA
Often designed exclusively for Black Hat, each of these hands-on Training courses is designed to quickly bring you up to speed on a key area of cybersecurity.
With one week to go until this year's all-digital Black Hat USA cybersecurity conference, now's the time to comb through the schedule and finalize your plans so you get the most out of attending the event.
With that in mind, organizers want to quickly highlight some of the excellent Training opportunities still available for Black Hat USA attendees to attend. Often designed exclusively for Black Hat, each of these deeply technical hands-on courses is crafted to quickly bring you up to speed on topics ranging from broader offensive security to the latest in penetration testing, infrastructure hacking, mobile application security, vehicle hacking, and everything in between.
For example, there's still some seats left in Basic Infrastructure Hacking, a popular entry-level infrastructure security and testing class that familiarizes you with the basics of network hacking. A number of tools and techniques will be taught during this class, and you'll have plenty of opportunities to practice what you've learned, so this is a great first step into the world of ethical hacking and pentesting.
If you're more interested in cloud security, consider signing up for Black Hat USA's 2-day Training on Hacking and Securing Cloud Infrastructure. Designed for anyone with a need to understand and manage vulnerabilities in a cloud environment, this course will teach you relevant hacking techniques and how to protect yourself from them. Expect to walk away with a firm understanding of the weaknesses and attacks that may be used to compromise various cloud services and infrastructure.
More comprehensive learning opportunities await those who can commit to a 4-day Training, but hurry; many are already at max capacity, and some of the popular ones will likely fill up before next week's event. A Complete Practical Approach to Malware Analysis and Memory Forensics (2020 Edition), for example, will teach you the fundamentals of malware analysis, reverse engineering, Windows internals, and techniques to perform malware hunting and rootkit investigations of real-world memory samples using the open-source advanced memory forensics framework Volatility.
This Training covers analysis and investigation of various real-world malware samples and infected memory images (crimewares, APT malwares, Rootkits, etc.), and attendees can look forward to hands-on labs designed to give you a better understanding of the subject.
If you'd rather learn to compromise, and control Wi-Fi networks, Unplugged: Modern Wi-Fi Hacking is your course! Learning modern Wi-Fi hacking can be a pain, with lots of outdated techniques and impractical advice; if you want to really understand what's going on, and master the attacks in such a way that you can vary them when you encounter real-world complexities, this 4-day Training will teach you what you need to know.
This course is highly practical, with concepts taught through theory delivered while your hands are on the keyboard, and semi-self directed practicals at the end of each section to reinforce the learning. Don't miss out!
Register now for this year's fully virtual Black Hat USA, still scheduled to take place August 1st through 6th, and get more information about the event on the Black Hat website.
