As a speaker at numerous cybersecurity conferences, including BSIDES Harrisburg, BSIDES Long Island, and Harrisburg University Cyber Security Summit, he has consistently shared his expertise on penetration testing and ethical hacking with the community.
In this book, you will gain valuable insights from Brandon's wide-ranging experience as he covers essential topics such as risk assessment models, methodologies, and processes. Through hands-on examples and exercises, you will learn how to conduct mission-focused data risk assessments and provide strategic and tactical recommendations to senior leaders on mitigating risks to your organization's data.
In this section, we will explore post-exploitation with Metasploit, focusing on the main features of Meterpreter and the use of shells outside of Metasploit. Post-exploitation refers to the actions taken after gaining unauthorized access to a system. The goal is to maintain control, gather valuable information, and, in some cases, pivot to other systems within the network. Meterpreter is a powerful post-exploitation tool included in Metasploit. It provides advanced features and functionalities that facilitate information gathering, privilege escalation, maintaining access, and more. Meterpreter runs in memory, making it difficult to detect by antivirus software.
Key benefits of "Risk Identification by Penetration Testing" include:
A comprehensive introduction to penetration testing for students at all levels
Expert insights from a recognized authority in the field
Real-world examples and practical exercises to reinforce key concepts
The ideal companion for a 7-week college course on penetration testing
