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.
