New Year’s Resolution: Get better at scripting for InfoSec

The New Year's resolution is going to be heavily focused on taking you skills to the next level. Instead of focusing on tools, we'll be focusing on the intermediate and advanced building blocks of IT Security (Shell Scripting, NMap, Scapy, Metasploit, Python, Ruby, and Powershell). All of this material is laser focused on IT Security and geared toward people that don't have a strong programming background.

16 January: Linux Command-line Immersion
- Shell fu
- NMap NSE
- Scapy

18 January: Python for InfoSec Professionals
- Log parsing
- Pcap parsing
- Network Attacks
- Web App Attacks

23 January: Ruby for Metasploit
- Ruby fundamentals
- Metasploit Auxilliary Modules
- Metasploit Post Modules

25 January: PowerShell for InfoSec Professionals
- Powershell fundamentals
- Windows Log parsing
- Offensive powershell

On Sunday of each week you will be assigned a set of tasks that are required to be completed by Friday at midnight EST prior to the start of the next class.

These tasks usually include:

  • Required reading
  • Required videos to watch
  • Required lab exercises to perform

Students will receive

  • 24 hours of CPEs
  • Several virtual machines
  • Courseware slides
  • Lab manual


Each class will be recorded and made available to the students via email. So you can keep up with the class even if you have to miss time, or even a whole day.


Each student will be given access to a Google Group for the class. This will be where students can ask questions outside of the normal class hours, work with other students on lab exercises, homework, and challenges.

A Strategic Security class mentor will be assigned to the Google Group to answer questions (allow 1 day for responses).

A Customer Relationship manager will be assigned to the class to manage questions, and support issues.


On Saturdays (January 16th, 18th, 23rd, 25th, 30th and February 1st if necessary) from 7pm - 9pm EST a live online training session/QA period will be held.

Class Cost

The class cost is $100 for access to all four courses.
