Certified Network Infiltration & Assessment Specialist (C-NIAS)
Instructor-Led Online Training
The ability to conduct network reconnaissance, discovery, and enumeration is a critical core competency required for both defensive and offensive cybersecurity operations. In defensive mode these skills are used to identify vulnerabilities, defend network assets, and protect organizational operations from threats posed by malicious actors. During offensive cyber operations these skills are employed to identify high-value network targets for exploitation missions and penetration testing. Regardless of the implementation, Information Security professionals tasked with these missions must possess a strong foundation of technical knowledge, analytical expertise, and the intuition to implement solutions in ways that align with strategic organizational objectives.
