CompTIA Pen Test+
A penetration test (pen test) is an authorized simulated computer attack to evaluate
security. Penetration testers use the same tools, techniques, and processes as attackers to
find weaknesses in a system. CompTIA PenTest+ digital badge earners learn to develop penetration testing skills
that will enable the IT professional to identify information systems vulnerabilities
by effectively applying remediation techniques for those vulnerabilities.
