COURSE OVERVIEW

Python for Cyber Security Professionals is a new 5 day course offered by the ACCS designed to teach both Red and Blue Team members how to harness the power of the Python programming language. Instruction will be provided through a mixture of theory lessons, small practical exercises and major in-class programming assignments known as Toolkit Development (TKD) sessions. Each TKD is designed to provide the student with a tool suitable for immediate deployment upon their return to the workplace, nuanced for their particular requirements. The final day consists of a 7 hour combined practical assessment and TKD activity. Alumni will be formally recognised as ACCS Python Developers, and leave the course with cutting edge knowledge as well as a deployable toolkit of Python programs.
