Become a Certified Penetration Testing Engineer

This CPTE Certified Penetration Testing Engineer course covers everything you need to know about becoming a Certified Penetration Testing Engineer. Career Path: Professional roles include Ethical Hackers, Security Consultants, System Administrators, and Chief Security Officers.

Hello,

Don't know if there is a solution like this, but I am looking for a software or tool that I can use to have the programmers collaborating in software development, history software versions, privileges to access codes, able to assign programmer to specific codes, possibility to have start/end-dates for each software to developed that has been assign, possibility to have at least 2 o 3 programmers work with the code simultaneously (and when done, the software tool would merge all changes into the code) and finally some sort of history of each code on who have worked on it, who started it, who finished it.  The programmers work with VB. Net.

Thank you very much for you help.

Hi guys

I got the ITIL foundation 2011 a while ago. I'd like to do the practitioner exam now. However, I can't find anything here that says whether I can now take the latest ITIL practitioner based on the 2011 foundation I have?

Does anybody here know whether I would have to take the foundation again?

Cheers
Yash

We are restructuring the ownership of documents with new staff/teams being formed.

We currently have IT Applications teams (who run IT Quality Management & still running it), IT Security Governance
(new team), IT Infra Ops.

In general practice (or commonly adopted out there), which team or person owns the 4 documents below:
1. IT Application Delivery Framework :  applications PM, IT Security governance, IT Quality Managemt, or ?
2. Vendor & Contract Management Framework : applications team, IT Security governance, IT Procurement or ?
     (a mix of IT applications, infra, security vendors but most of the vendors are applications vendors)
3. Project Management Methodology : applications PM, IT Quality Management, IT Security governance or ?
4. DR Plan : We don't have a DR team;  so hv to choose betw IT Ops, applications team, IT Security governance or ?

Any authoritative references (eg: NIST, big four consulting firms papers) will be helpful.

My issue or question is about software development in genereal.

I am currently studying software development and will be studying software engineering shortly. At the same time I am doing an internship have been asked to create an employee database with Microsoft Access. As I am developing this by myself, I will doing it the traditional way: software elicitation/Analysis/requirements/implementation - the way taught at university.

This morning, I was asked by my boss how long it will take me to complete this project. As I am doing it for the first time in such a structured way, I would appreciate it if I could get some feedback from you guys how long it can take to complete a smaller Access project -  either each phase of development (following IEEE format) or for the entire project.

Although my boss has worked in (big) projects, they apparently never worked in structured way: not agile, spiral, waterfall etc.. Although the product works, I thought that not only is important to deliver a quality product, but also add quality how I work.

Could it be possible that my approach is too structured and some Projects are indeed never done in a structured way?
Or that what is taught in software development/engineering is not applied in real projects - in other words too theoretical?

Thanks for your feedback

Hi Experts,

I have been approached by a group of 8 companies to provide for them an information exchange portal. Here they would store files, documents and posts, organized by category and sub category, and a bulletin board with latest news and events posted by the users.

The companies indicated that SharePoint wont’t work because the each have their own domain, and they need this solution to be independent from any of them. They also want to restrict each company to 3 users, and if another company wants to join, the admin of 3 other companies need to approve.

My question is - would this be a development project (I'm a PHP developer); or a sourcing project, where there is something pre-made that can be adjusted? What would a  bull park cost be for this?

Thank you.

I am building a deck and need to sketch out the final stages of the project to scale.  Is there a free, shareable way to do this online?

It looks like the picture below right now.  The plan is to further stabilize the sub-floor and then put self-adhesive roll out roofing material over the top of it.

How do I sketch this out online, complete with a picture, so that it can be shared?

I am building a timeline. I have several tasks where the resources work 10 hour days 4 days a week. I built a custom calendar to reflect this. I have the approximate work hours needed to complete the tasks. I assigned the custom calendar to the resources and the tasks that are only done in 10 hour shifts/4 days a week. I entered the work hours and the number of  resources. It is calculating the duration for this work still based on 8 hour work days and a 5 day work week.
Is there any way to get it to calculate based on the 4 day work week and 10 hour work day?
I have Microsoft Project 2016.

Dears,

I am in the process of learning Software requirements gathering (using the BABOK) and the IREB standards.

I am to use a tool and the ones I have come across (actually they were recommended by the trainers) are Visual Paradigm and Sparx System.

I found Sparx to be a little bit too complex, yet Visual Paradigm is not "that easy" too !
So I am confused and since there is some effort needed (learning curve) I would like to hear about experts about the right tool to choose.

The projects I will be working on (mapping in the tool) are mid-size projects. But I need to be able to do all the "actions" project management, database design, UML, use case, testing scenarios...etc...

I work in events and facilities management for a University and often have multiple projects to track as well as multiple work orders open with various other departments on campus (i.e., IT, facilities, custodial, dining, security, etc.). I'm looking for a better way to track and manage all these various and disparate projects. I'm fairly savvy with excel and am starting to get in to the more advanced features, but I want to make sure I use the right tool for the job. Based on the software I already have access to due to institutional licenses, my choices come down to Microsoft Excel, Access, or Project.

I'm looking for advice and opinions on which of the three would be the best choice. I don't mind a learning curve and don't mind doing front end work, as long as the payoff in the end is worth it. The main things I'm looking for are:

•Tracking work orders from multiple different departments. If I can create something in VBA to take the automatic emails I get through outlook every time I submit a work order and input the information into whichever program I end up using, so much the better.
•Assign employees to different projects either as the person heading it up or as the person that needs to follow up to make sure that the other department completes the work.
•Create reports to see project progress and timelines.
•Ability to set task dependencies.
•Ability to create multiple parts for each project/task.
•Ability to attach or link to supporting documentation.
