- [Jerod] Thank you so much…for working through this course with me.…I really hope you find the information you learned…along the way both practical and useful.…There's only so much I can cover…in the time allotted for a course like this one,…but I wouldn't be doing right by you…unless I shared additional resources that might help you…along the way after you wrap up here.…Make sure you check out the resource handout…that accompanies this course.…Now that you're equipped with all…of this security testing knowledge, what's next?…You should put it into practice, that's what.…
Even after nearly two decades…of working in IT and information security,…I still use my home lab on a regular basis.…All of the demos that I shared…in this course were based on my experiences…in corporate and consulting environments,…but you can be sure I ran through them in my lab environment…to make sure they were current, accurate, and relevant…to what you're likely to bump into in your day to day work.…If you don't have a home lab, put one together…
