    Posted byINE

    Penetration testing is an integral part of cybersecurity, so it’s no surprise that it’s a rapidly growing role. O’Net Online reports that penetration testing roles will grow by almost 35,000 jobs by 2031, a faster-than-average growth rate. Organizations are in search of qualified, certified professionals to join their Red Teams, and you can be one of them with help from INE’s new Junior Penetration Tester (eJPT) certification.

    How Does an eJPT Certification Help You

    A Junior Penetration Tester is an entry-level role on a cybersecurity team that searches for vulnerabilities and attempts to exploit them as a preventative cybersecurity measure. With INE’s release of the eJPT Certification, you can learn and demonstrate mastery of all the necessary skills for the role, at your own pace.

    This certification covers:

    • Assessment Methodologies

    • Host and Network Auditing

    • Host and Network Penetration Testing

    • And Web Application Penetration Testing

    While a Junior Pentester is an entry-level role, it can lead to more advanced positions on a cybersecurity team. Not only does it provide an opportunity for career growth, there’s also a chance for salary growth. Glassdoor documents that as of March 2023, the following salaries apply on average:

    • Junior Penetration Tester Salary: $87,105

    • Penetration Tester Salary: $97,666
