This course is introduction to Wi-Fi security testing and is meant for engineers that requires theoretical and practical knowledge to conduct security assessment on corporate and other Wi-Fi networks. Absolvents will gain practical overview of attacks used by hackers, so they are able to perform security test of Wi-Fi infrastructure on their own and improve its configuration and security posture.
