Hacking Enterprises – 2021 Edition

This is a three-day training. It takes place online on March 29 to 31, 2021.

This is an immersive hands-on course aimed at a technical audience. Over the 3 days we will fully compromise a simulated enterprise covering a multitude of TTP’s. The training is based around modern operating systems, using modern techniques and emphasising the exploitation of configuration weaknesses rather than throwing traditional exploits. This means logical thinking and creativity will definitely be put to the test.

Students will access a cloud-based LAB configured with multiple networks, some easily accessible, others not so. Course material and exercise content has been designed to reflect real-world challenges and students will perform numerous hands-on exercises including executing exploitative phishing campaigns against our simulated users to gain access to new networks, in turn bringing new challenges including IPv6 exploitation, subverting AMSI and AWL, passphrase cracking, pivoting, lateral movement, OOB persistence mechanisms and much more!

We also like to do things with a difference. You’ll be provided access to an in LAB Elastic instance, where logs from all targets get pushed and processed. This allows you, whether an attacker or defender, to understand the types of artefacts your attacks leave and how you might catch or be caught in the real world.

Also included

We realise that training courses are limited for time and therefore students are also provided with the following:

  • Completion certificate

  • 14-day extended LAB access after the course finishes

  • 14-day access to a CTF platform with subnets/hosts not seen during training!

  • Discord support channel access where our security consultants are available

  • Overview on using the in-LAB ELK stack

  • Offensive OSINT

  • Enumerating and exploiting IPv6 targets

  • Pivoting, routing, tunnelling and SOCKS proxies

  • Application enumeration and exploitation via pivots

  • Linux living off the land and post exploitation

  • Kubernetes and container security

Day 2

  • Exploitative phishing against our simulated enterprise users

  • Living off the land tricks and techniques in Windows

  • P@ssw0rd and p@ssphras3 cracking

  • Windows exploitation and privilege escalation techniques

  • Windows Defender/AMSI and UAC bypasses

  • Situational awareness and domain reconnaissance

  • RDP hijacking

Day 3

  • Bypassing AWL (AppLocker, PowerShell CLM and Group Policy)

Who should attend this training

This training is suited to a variety of students, including:

  • Penetration testers / Red Team operators

  • SOC analysts

  • Security professionals

  • IT Support, administrative and network personnel


  • A firm familiarity of Windows and Linux command line syntax

  • Understanding of networking concepts

  • Previous pentesting and/or SOC experience is advantageous, but not required


  • Students will need to bring a laptop to which they have administrative/root access, running either Windows, Linux or Mac operating systems.

  • Students will need to have access to VNC, SSH and OpenVPN clients on their laptop (these can be installed at the start of the training).
