NASSCOM claims that the current share of cyber security is US$1.5 billion and that this figure is likely to grow to US$35 billion by 2025. The worldwide cybersecurity market size (as per Gartner) will touch US$170 billion by 2020. Nearly 1,000 startups will emerge in the security domain over the next 10 years.
With the prevalence of cyber security breaches, it is clear that more attention is needed in testing that security defenses are in place and working effectively. This course and certification covers much more than just penetration testing. Certainly, penetration testing is an important part of security testing, but there are many other threats and vulnerabilities that require other security testing approaches
The Certification is helpful in demonstrating the attacker mentality by discovering key information about a target, performing actions on a test application in a protected environment that a malicious person would perform, and understand how evidence of the attack could be deleted.
