The new training course provides a deep dive on the attack surface introduced by Azure and how to exploit its vulnerabilities.
Minneapolis, Minnesota – NetSPI, the leader in enterprise penetration testing and attack surface management, today announced Dark Side Ops (DSO) 3: Azure Cloud Pentesting, a new cybersecurity training course focused on Azure cloud penetration testing. Participants will gain a better understanding of potential risks associated with Azure cloud deployments, how to exploit them, and how to prevent and remediate critical cloud vulnerabilities.
As experts anticipateI cloud adoption to soar in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, this course helps cybersecurity, DevOps, and IT professionals better grasp the complexities that accompany Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform. The first public DSO 3: Azure Cloud Pentesting training is scheduled for August 23-24, 2021 and will be conducted virtually. The two-day training session costs $2,000/person.
“It’s no surprise that cloud security was listed as the most important skill needed to pursue a cybersecurity career in the latest (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce StudyII,” said Aaron Shilts, President and CEO at NetSPI. “An emphasis on cloud security education and training is critical as the attack surface grows.”
“Not only does DSO 3: Azure Cloud Pentesting feature a live cloud environment and real-world examples from our extensive cloud penetration testing work, it is also designed and instructed by NetSPI practice director Karl Fosaaen, one of the foremost experts on Azure penetration testing,” Shilts added.
“Traditional network penetration testing processes need to be updated to account for the intricacies introduced by cloud infrastructure,” said Karl Fosaaen, Cloud Practice Director at NetSPI. “Through the training, I’m eager to teach others how level up their on-premise penetration testing skills and apply them to Azure cloud.”
