I accepted the open door to take the CompTIA PenTest+ beta confirmation exam. CompTIA plans this to be another seller unbiased moderate affirmation between CompTIA’s Security+ and the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP). This affirmation sits close by the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+). Like other CompTIA exams, this exam comprises of both different decision and execution based inquiries and my exam had an aggregate of 110 inquiries and 5 of the inquiries were execution based. The aggregate test time dispensed for the beta exam was 165 minutes. CompTIA intends to discharge the last test of the year in 3Q2018, so the cosmetics might be somewhat adjusted when the exam is discharged to people in general.
Be set up to see inquiries from these classifications:
Assaults and Exploits
Infiltration Testing Tools
Lines of Communication
The execution construct questions depend with respect to the test taker’s capacity to break down scraps of log records and, utilizing that data, to decide the assault. On the off chance that you know about Security+, these inquiries are significantly more itemized and expect hands on encounter so get ready yourself and spending plan your opportunity. The numerous decision questions did not have the run of the mill CompTIA wording flavor. It was comparative yet the cushion was absent. You won’t see the “Joe the administrator was asked by the CIO to… ” and rather the inquiries were more to the point.
For the individuals who depend on DoD 8570 confirmations, I accept this will wind up being affirmed for different occupation classes. Comptia’s CySA+ was affirmed for Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSSP) – Analyst, CSSP – Incident Responder, CSSP – Infrastructure Support, CSSP – Auditor, Information Assurance Technician Level II so it is likely that PenTest+ will likewise be endorsed.
In the event that you might want to take your risk with the $50 beta exam it is as yet open until the point when 400 individuals take it or April 25, 2018. On the off chance that you might want to hold up I prescribe keeping eyes open for the arrival of the last test of the year in 3Q2018.
