Powering up on PowerShell!

Instructor: Fernando Tomlinson

Duration: 2 Hours

As a cybersecurity professional, learning a new programming/scripting language can be a daunting task and finding suitable training could be just as difficult. Available training either focuses too much on the programming/scripting aspect, not enough on using it from a cybersecurity vantage point or not enough hands-on immersion of Microsoft PowerShell in a Windows environment. Why PowerShell? Well, it's one of the most versatile languages today whether it's from system administration or attacker reconnaissance, escalation, exfiltration, or lateral movement. This training looks to scratch the surface on the usage of the language. In addition, we will explore avenues to improve or hone your skills with realistic blue and red team scenarios in a game format with hands-on immersion.
