Reviews

Wilhelm has created the ultimate handbook for becoming a pen tester. This is going to help launch many a career. - Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst, IT-Harvest Professional Penetration Testing covers everything from ethical concerns, to advance concepts, to setting up your own custom laboratory. It is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide at penetration testing that I have seen. Tom Wilhelm is a true expert in the field who not only is in the trenches on a daily basis, but also takes the time to instruct others on the ways and means of pen testing. -Frank Thornton, Owner, Blackthorn Systems
