As a security professional, you need to test non-technical attack vectors within our engagement. We’ll look at different tools that we can use to bypass locks, motion sensors and even users themselves.
Security professionals tend to focus on the technical aspects of attacks and forget that infrastructures can be compromised by the non-technical hacks. If non-technical attacks such as social engineering and physical security testing are within the scope of your pen-testing engagement, you will want to hold off on moving into active reconnaissance. In this course, Performing Non-Technical Tests for CompTIA PenTest+, you will gain the ability to truly evaluate the non-technical (digital) aspects of a penetration test. First, you will learn how social engineering can manipulate users into doing things they normally wouldn’t do. Next, you will discover how easy it is to implement a USB drop and how effective it still is today. Finally, you will explore how to circumvent the physical security controls in place. When you’re finished with this course, you will increase your skills and knowledge as a security professional needed to perform non-technical penetration tests.
