In this studious edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) Chris Maddalena joins me to discuss how to prepare for the OSCP certification.

Chris (@cmaddalena) returns to talk about how he got his OSCP. He didn't get it on his first attempt. He did learn from his first attempt, though, and passed the exam on his second attempt. He was willing to come on the podcast to describe his experience and provide tips for others looking to acquire the certification. The exam is not easy. It's a 24-hour exam that includes writing a report as well as performing a penetration test. Preparation for the exam is very important.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is the OSCP and OSCE
  • Why someone should pursue the OSCP
  • What is the test like
  • How Chris' first attempt went
