CompTIA PenTest+: Planning for an Engagement
Discover how penetration testing exposes weaknesses in security. During this course, you will learn all about the CompTIA PenTest+ exam. Begin by getting to know your audience and the rules of engagement for penetration tests. Next, compare resources, requirements, and budgets. Observe how to conduct an impact analysis and trace remediation timelines. Learn how to review disclaimers and confirm engagement support resources; consider technical constraints, and examine contracts and agreements, such as statements of work. Evaluate environmental differences between clients. Finally, learn why it is important to get written authorization instead of an oral agreement, before the execution of a penetration test.

CompTIA PenTest+: Scoping an Engagement
How far does a security test need to go? This course shows you how to set the scope of a security penetration test. Begin by identifying security assessment types, how to select security targets, and how to determine the testing scope strategy. Next, you will determine who tests the security and learn how to confirm their test methods. Discover how to review the test outcome to determine the level of acceptable risks, risk impacts, and risk treatments. Learn how to avoid scope creep with clients, and identify threat actors and agents. Conclude by aligning tests to regulations and standards, such as PCI DSS, FISMA, MARS-E, HIPAA, SOX, and ISO.
