Certified Simulated Attack Manager (CCSAM)

Certified Simulated Attack Manager (CCSAM)

  • Course Objectives

    • Understand the steps required to simulate an advanced cyber-attack, including planning, execution and clean-up.
    • Gain knowledge of tactics used by real-life attackers and how these can be safely simulated.
    • Discuss the risks of performing simulated attacks and actions that can be taken to mitigate these risks.
    • Develop your knowledge of the CCASP/CREST code of ethics and how this applies to executing simulated attacks.


    Course Outlines

    • The CCSAM is designed for people running and overseeing simulated attack exercises.
    • It will cover the theoretical aspects of executing simulated attacks, sometimes known as “red-teaming”, together with common tactics used by attackers.
    • The focus will be on the methodology, techniques and procedures that would be needed to execute a simulated attack.
    • It will cover what can go wrong in executing a simulated attack and how to manage these risks.
