Certified Simulated Attack Specialist (CCSAS)

Certified Simulated Attack Specialist (CCSAS)

  • Course Objectives

    • Understand how to perform a red-team simulated attack exercise from planning, through execution to delivery and lateral movement.
    • Identify the tools that you will need to successfully run a simulated attack exercise.
    • Consider the risks to client’s systems from executing a simulated attack and be able to list some measures you can take to minimise these risks.
    • Learn how to identify and exploit weaknesses on the internal network whilst minimising the chance of discovery.
    • Test yourself against a real-life exercise.


    Course Outlines

    • This course is designed to introduce you to the techniques used to simulate advanced attacks against client’s networks.
    • The focus will be on executing the tactics used by real threat groups in the wild such as spear-phishing and browser based attacks, followed by operating covertly within a client’s network.
    • These simulations are sometimes referred to as “red-teaming”.
    • It covers exploitation of the human factor to gain a foothold on clients’ networks, how to establish communications in modern corporate networks and how to exploit weaknesses within internal networks from outside the perimeter.
    • The course will focus primarily on corporate Windows networks with common security controls in place, including detective and monitoring controls.
