The course provides students with the experience needed to defend against cyberattacks for IoT devices
GAINESVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ITPro, ACI Learning’s platform for self-paced online IT training and certification platform, today announced the availability of a new course, Intro to IoT Pentesting. This intermediate level pentesting course is designed to teach specific skills needed to work with IoT devices, and covers basic concepts of IoT pentesting and necessary tools, software, and physical connections. The course includes several hands-on demos of IoT pentesting in action, and is intended for learners with a general understanding of pentesting techniques.
IoT devices are a potential attack vector for hackers looking to gain a foothold inside a network, and pentesting is an important step to fortifying an organization’s defenses. To support organizations in their fight against this growing threat, ITPro’s pentesting course prepares students that have an existing foundation in cybersecurity with general pentesting technical knowledge for real world applications by putting their skills into practice. While ITPro’s Intro to IoT Pentesting course is not a certification-based course, it would be well suited for anyone who recently completed a CompTIA Pentest+ course or another similar course, like Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).
“The proliferation of IoT devices, both at home and in the office, has significantly expanded attack vectors that can be used against individuals and organizations. You may be forced to use some of these gadgets even though they don’t always have the same level of built-in security you’d like for devices on your corporate network,” said Daniel Lowrie, Edutainer at ITPro. “By penetration testing these devices on your own network, you’re able to more effectively assess potential vulnerabilities and improve your security posture. This course will teach users the tricks of the pentesting trade specific to IoT devices so they can see things from the attacker’s perspective and take corrective measures to secure their data.”
The Intro to IoT Pentesting course material will be available to ITPro subscribers via the ITPro platform, which includes the website, mobile apps, Roku app, and Apple TV. The course is the latest example of ITProTV’s mission to blend engaging entertainment and cutting-edge technology with IT education. With more than 375 combined certifications held by ITPro’s Edutainers and Instructors, organizations and industry professionals trust ITPro for staying up to date on the latest IT trends and certifications.
