Offensive Methodology & Analysis (OMA)

Course Length:



$7500 per person


This two-week OMA course teaches the essentials of remote network exploitation by demonstrating offensive methodologies in a coherent framework. You will receive an in-depth look at the essentials of remote network exploitation, from scanning and enumeration of a network space down to performing client-side attacks, which are quickly becoming the most reliable vector into target networks.

In this class, you will use real exploits against simulated targets. For example, you will perform spear-phishing attacks against email addresses found in your scenario. Our remote target computers will check their email and open your exploit attachments and links. All exploits are performed in a realistic network with routing, public IP addresses and domain names. Note: Our network is safely sandboxed to prevent any accidents.

What you will learn:

  • How to analyze remote networks
  • What the domain controller does
  • How to find credentials
  • How to expand access across a network
  • How to develop strategies to protect and defend networks and information
