Career, certification and Salary

Career, certification and Salary – CREST Penetration Tester.

There are many articles available about Career, certification and Salary in relation to Crest Registered Tester (CRT). Firstly, you have to know what advantages this course offers you and after that, what is a CRT. The course can be led by an instructor, face to face, or you can attend it from anywhere. And that’s cool, isn’t it? Another cool thing is that we guarantee you the exam pass and even  if you don’t pass from the first attempt, you can try it later for free.  If you are not  satisfied with this course, you can join another one. Also, you will  learn a lot of  skills and get  a great certification. Our offer includes 5 days of training, examination fees, slides or course material, a classroom training (or you can attend from anywhere) and a training with skilled specialists. Now we want to tell you more about what Crest CRT means. CRT is a Crest registered tester or a Penetration Tester.

A Penetration test or a pen test is an approved  simulated cyberattack on a computer system, executed to test the safety of the system. This is not the same thing as a vulnerability evaluation. The test is played  to detect vulnerabilities, including the chance for unauthorized parties to reach system data or strengths, providing a complete risk assessment. Why do you need to know if you want to join a Penetration Tester course? The fact that you should have a good knowledge of computer operating systems and in this course you will learn a lot of new and interesting facts. 

Pen testing can imply  a wanted breaching for many  application systems in order to reveal the weak points, like  inputs that are exposed to code attacks. The results delivered  by the penetration test can be applied to fine-tune your WAF security policies and repair identified issues. A Penetration Tester training allows you to learn about the five stages of a pen testing.

These five important stages are: planning  and observation, scanning, gaining access, maintaining access and analysis and WAF configuration. In the first stage, the planning and the observation, you have to establish   the goals of a test, including the systems to be examined  and to check the  best methods you should use. As a Penetration tester you must collect intelligence (like a mail server or domain names), so you can find out how a target acts and what weak spots can occur.

The second stage is called scanning, an important stage when you have to figure out  how the target application will respond to different intrusion attempts. The analysis can be also  static or dynamic. The static analysis refers to studying  application’s code so you can  evaluate  the mode  it acts while operating. And the dynamic one means that you must analyse an application’s code in a running state, so the second type of analyse offers a real-time outlook into an application’s execution. Gaining access is another stage of a pen testing, in which you may try and utilise these vulnerabilities, usually by stealing data, intercepting traffic, to find out the problem they can produce.

Maintaining access has the goal to check  if the problem can be used to fulfil a lasting existence in the exploited system. The objective is to simulate  complex and persistent threats, which frequently stand in a system for a long time  in order to grab an organization’s confidential information. The last stage or step is the configuration, in which you make a report with important results, like the exploited vulnerabilities, the confidential data accessed and how many  times the Pen Tester was allowed  to stay  in the system unobserved.

A Penetration testing has many significant methods, like internal testing, external testing, targeted testing, blind testing and double-blind testing.  Within an internal testing, a pen tester has to fake an outbreak  by a harmful insider. Of course, he can break through an application behind its firewall.

External penetration tests point the resources of a company that are noticeable on the internet, like the  web application, email or domain name servers (DNS). The main purpose is to enter and obtain precious information. When we speak about targeted testing, you should know that is a team work, because the tester and security personnel work together and support one another. This is a valued practice exercise that generates a security team with realtime response from a hacker’s position.

Blind testing means that a pen tester has  only the name of the targeted company. The  security employees have now a clear look into how application attack  performs. The last method for a Penetration testing is the double-blind testing. Now security staff can’t anticipate the simulated attack. Just like in reality, they don’t have the time to prepare a defense before an unexpected attack. 

Let’s talk now about the skills required for a penetration tester. What do you should know and what skills or competencies do you must own? First of all, you must own very good spoken and written communication so you can point out your methods to a technical and non-technical public. Secondly, you have to be capable to design and perform tests while taking into account the customer’s preferences. Another important skill  which you have to take into account is the capacity to be creative and to have good time management and managerial aptitudes to meet customer deadlines and of course, wishes. 

Careers and certification, training courses is population for System administrators, law enforcement officers,  detectives, aspiring information security personnel who wants  to be part of a Pen Test team or who is considering a career in Penetration Testing. The salary for a Pen Tester is amongst  some of the very best, you can get,  because you have  to think outside the box and you must commit to permanently upgrading your technical information base. So be prepared to enter the fascinating world of testing and find out new things that will help you develop professionally. Penetration Tester course  is created especially for you and if you think you’re ready, we expect you in our team!
