CompTIA PenTest+ is a certification for intermediate skills level cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with hands-on penetration testing to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network. Skills covered in this training include:
• Planning and scoping
• Information gathering and vulnerability identification
• Attacks and exploits
• Penetration testing tools
• Reporting and communication
While CySA+ focuses on defense through incident detection and response, PenTest+ teaches you offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment. It’s important for cybersecurity professionals to have both offensive and defensive skills.
