Your course

IT infrastructure is more complex and dynamic than it's ever been demanding comprehensive, up-to-date, and well-rehearsed security skills to match. Join this hands-on, 5-day course to push your infrastructure hacking to the next level and widen your career prospects.

Get your hands dirty with our popular virtual labs and learn from experienced, practicing penetration testers with a legacy of training at Black Hat.

Who's it for?

  • Penetration testers and red teamers
  • Security consultants and architects
  • Network admins with security experience
  • CSIRT/SOC teams/blue teamers
  • Security/IT managers and team leads

This course is suitable for in-house security teams from intermediate to advanced. It's also relevant to other security and IT practitioners and managers who want to understand the current threat landscape and defend their organization.

Delegates must have the following to make the most of the course:

  • Intermediate knowledge of infrastructure application security (at least 2 years' experience)
  • Common command line syntax competency
  • Experience using virtual labs for pentesting and/or offensive research

Top 3 takeaways

  • Many of the latest and most complex infrastructure testing techniques
  • Hacks to use against your organisation's own products
  • Knowledge of how to remediate as well as attack weaknesses in infrastructure  

What you'll learn

This course uses a Defence by Offence methodology based on real world engagements and offensive research (not theory). That means everything we teach has been tried and tested on live environments and in our labs, so you can put it into practice as soon as the training is over. By the end of the course, you'll know:

  • How to think and behave like an advanced, real world threat actor
  • How to identify commonly used vulnerabilities known to have recently caused damage and disruption
  • How to deploy the latest and most common network infrastructure and cloud hacks, (including many novel techniques that can't be detected by scanners)
  • How to analyse vulnerabilities within your own organisation and customise your hacking techniques in response
  • A huge menu of hacks for Windows, Linux, Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), software development systems, and more...

What you'll be doing

You'll be learning hands on:

  • Spending most of the session (~80%) on lab-based exercises
  • Using lab-based flows to explore and hack lifelike web application environments
  • Discussing the impact of the hacks covered with your course trainer

Why it's relevant

As different on-premise and cloud environments shapeshift and converge, the practice of infrastructure security is becoming more complex. Organisations and their security teams can no longer afford to understand the overarching attack surface at a high level. Nor can they rely on the same security practices that worked in the past. What's needed is a thorough, contextual understanding of how and why your architecture and systems get targeted by threat actors, which are at risk, and what happens when those attacks succeed. Our Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course provides delegates with this knowledge and more, by giving them an up-to-date arsenal of advanced offensive testing and remediation skills.

Our syllabuses are revised regularly to reflect the latest in-the-wild hacks and whatever proof of concepts we've been developing through our own research. Because they remain so up to date with the threat landscape and security industry standard, many delegates return every 1-2 years to update their skills and get a refresh.
