Training and certification for Core Impact users

Core Security Technologies : 28 July, 2009  (Company News)
IT security professionals using Core Impact from Core Security Technologies can now benefit from training and certification programs available worldwide
Core Security Technologies, provider of Core Impact, the most comprehensive product for proactive enterprise security testing, has unveiled a worldwide training and certification program for its industry-leading penetration testing software. This all-new program will teach both end users and trainers alike how to best utilize the market's only commercial-grade product for automated penetration testing, Core Impact.

Featured program tracks will cater to two groups: professional trainers seeking to instruct others on how to conduct penetrating tests using Core Impact and Core Impact users who want to more effectively make use of the product to secure their IT infrastructures. Only a few, select organizations have been invited to participate as training partners. Additionally, only trainers who undergo a rigorous examination process will be approved as Core Impact Certified Trainers (CICT). Students who attend the instructor-led, 2-day class and pass the final exam will be recognized as a Core Impact Certified Professional (CICP).

Andrew Whitaker, senior instructor at Training Camp, one of the first organizations to join the program, said, "There's still a surprising amount of confusion in the marketplace about what constitutes a penetration test, specifically, as opposed to a vulnerability scan. Training and certification programs like Core Security's are critical to help build awareness about the specific benefits of this fundamentally important security process and to ensure best practices among more experienced testing and vulnerability management practitioners."

Core Security's training and certification program involves participation in intensive, on-site instruction, including labs and exercises built around practical use case scenarios. By the time training is completed, users will have a firm grasp of all of the capabilities of Core Impact and will be able to actively assess their network's, endpoint's and web applications' defences to manage related IT security risks.

"While I've been using Core Impact software for some time, the training course helped me understand not only how much more I could get out of the product, but how to rapidly expand my personal skill set as a penetration tester," said Steve Povolny, a CICP class participant and IT Security manager at a major retailer.

"Given that Core Security's products are the de facto standard for penetration testing software, we're offering full training and certification courses built around our market-leading technology and our experiences in the field," said Mark Hatton, CEO of Core Security. "Many users are only scratching the surface of what they can achieve utilizing Core Impact to validate their overall IT security standing. Through this program, we aim to provide attendees with a wealth of hands-on experience and practical knowledge so that they can derive maximum value from the entire penetration testing process."
