Over the past four years, we have had the pleasure of educating some of the most exceptional and diverse students from around the world through our Advanced Practical Social Engineering (APSE) class. The APSE class provides an introduction to the art and science of social engineering and has evolved over time. Each year we added new content, the most up-to-date research, and even an afternoon “spy school” format for homework. So, in addition to learning directly from social engineering practitioners, students are given the opportunity to immediately practice new knowledge, making it a unique, applied experience.
One of the questions we are asked most often is, “What’s the next step for graduates of APSE?” As the threat posed by social engineering has grown, so has our curriculum. We are very excited to announce the release of our Master’s Level Social Engineering class – a breakthrough course designed to teach advanced social engineering penetration testing techniques through a totally immersive experience – an actual SE engagement on live targets!
Students will be required to apply the knowledge they acquired in APSE to perform deep OSINT and attack planning. Then the instructors will guide them through all stages of an SE engagement. The class will move on to phishing, vishing, and even onsite impersonation with specific goals to accomplish in a very limited amount of time. Throughout the week, Chris will be sharing his techniques, experience, and the most current research to assist the students in honing and mastering their SE pentesting skills.
Social-Engineer is committed to bringing you the finest curriculum available in the field of social engineering. As such, this class can only be made available once a year, exclusively to graduates of APSE, as foundational skills and knowledge will be necessary for this course. In addition, we must limit class size to only 12 students to ensure all receive the opportunity to participate in every aspect of the training.
Our first class will be held in Orlando, FL 29 Feb – 04 March 2016 for graduates of APSE. We hope to see you there!
