Are you considering cybersecurity, especially penetration testing as a career option?
This training and coaching program is designed to bridge the gap between traditional infosec training and the real-world security requirements of corporate security environments, with a focus on application security.
Our goal at Exfil Security is to give candidates both personalized application security training and coaching from an information security professional in order to prepare them for real-world cybersecurity testing and/or placement in the field of application security.
Why a Career in Cybersecurity is the Next BIG Thing
