LPT is a widely recognized certification that every penetration tester must achieve. LPT is often combined with ECSA as it stands as a prerequisite to apply for Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT). As such, there is no certification specifically designed for LPT.
The certification proves that an individual can protect digital information networks and possesses a detailed knowledge of operating systems, understands secure internet communications and has the ability to code and script.
A security report refers to a documentation that presents security metrics chosen for a specific target audience. The report contains scanned results with easy readability, making others understand the meaning of the results, their relevancy and the fixes required.
The ECSA certification proves that an individual possesses a real world hands-on penetration testing experience covering the testing of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments, and also validates an individual’s ability to document and write penetration testing reports.
A Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) is capable of conducting a full blackbox penetration test of a network including processes such as scanning, enumeration, gaining access, maintaining access and exploiting vulnerabilities. They spend hours trying to find back doors, unguarded accounts and other accesses that hackers can use to enter a company’s digital space in an illegitimate manner.
The average salary that the LPT certification enables candidates to fetch is $85,000 per year, as per a report generated by PayScale.
Also, the average salary for a Penetration Tester is $81,245 per year, as per the same source.
