Fundamentals of Physical Penetration Testing

The "Fundamentals of Physical Security Penetration Testing" course is a two day class designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the principles, methodologies, and techniques involved in assessing and exploiting physical security vulnerabilities within an organization's facilities. This hands-on training program covers key aspects of physical security testing, including open-source intelligence (OSINT) gathering, on-site reconnaissance, attack planning, identifying weak perimeter controls, gaining unauthorized access to target facilities, and conducting network attacks from within.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course, participants will:

  • Understand Physical Security Fundamentals: Gain an in-depth knowledge of the foundational concepts of physical security, including security layers, access controls, intrusion detection, and surveillance systems.

  • OSINT Techniques: Learn how to leverage open-source intelligence tools and methods to gather information about target organizations, personnel, physical locations, and potential vulnerabilities.

  • Conduct On-Site Reconnaissance: Explore the art of on-site reconnaissance, including techniques for covertly gathering information through physical presence, social engineering, and observation.

  • Develop Attack Plans: Discover how to formulate effective attack plans by analyzing collected intelligence, identifying entry points, evaluating potential security gaps, and outlining step-by-step procedures.

  • Identify Weak Perimeter Controls: Learn to assess and exploit weak points in perimeter security controls, such as access points, barriers, locks, and alarms.

  • Simulate Unauthorized Access: Gain practical experience in bypassing physical security measures, such as locks, card readers, and biometric systems, to gain unauthorized entry into target facilities.

  • Conduct Internal Network Attacks: Understand the techniques for pivoting from physical access to launching network attacks from within the compromised facility, simulating real-world breach scenarios.

  • Practice Ethical Hacking: Emphasize the importance of ethical behavior and legal considerations throughout the penetration testing process, ensuring compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

  • Hands-On Training: Engage in hands-on labs, simulated scenarios, and practical exercises to reinforce the concepts taught in the course, fostering skill development and real-world application.

  • Case Studies and Examples: Analyze real-world case studies and examples of successful physical security breaches, enabling participants to understand the impact of vulnerabilities and the importance of robust security measures.

  • Risk Mitigation Strategies: Explore strategies for organizations to mitigate physical security risks, including implementing effective access controls, surveillance systems, personnel training, and incident response plans.

  • Reporting and Documentation: Develop the skills to create clear, concise, and detailed reports that communicate assessment findings, vulnerabilities, and recommended remediation steps to stakeholders.

Who Should Attend:

This course is ideal for professionals in the fields of information security, physical security, risk management, IT operations, and compliance. It is suitable for security consultants, penetration testers, security analysts, system administrators, and anyone seeking to enhance their knowledge of physical security assessment and penetration testing techniques.

Participants should have a basic understanding of information security concepts and networking fundamentals. Familiarity with ethical hacking and penetration testing concepts will be beneficial but is not mandatory.

$500 per student - group and corporate discounts are available.

Note: This course emphasizes ethical behavior and the responsible use of knowledge gained. Participants are expected to adhere to legal and ethical standards while conducting physical security assessments. The course does not endorse or encourage illegal activities.
