Penetration Testing SharePoint

by Liam Cleary

There's a lot more to securing the SharePoint environment than you realize--you need to correctly configure and test it. This course will take you through the steps, the tools, and the process of penetration testing your SharePoint environment.

What you'll learn

Creating a SharePoint environment is now almost a common occurrence in most organizations. Setting it up correctly, using least privilege, securing the perimeter and the front end are often overlooked. Too often people simply just expect SharePoint to take care of all the security, when in reality they need to correctly configure and test it. In this course, Penetration Testing SharePoint, you'll learn how to perform a penetration test that specifically identifies security holes and related issues. First, you'll learn how to map the SharePoint environment. Next, you'll learn how to scan the SharePoint network and widen the attack vector. Finally, you'll attack SharePoint yourself, testing how well you've managed to secure it. By the end of this course, you'll know how to perform a penetration test in SharePoint, and more importantly, you'll be able to ensure that your content and site are safe from potential security or data breaches.
