The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the use of Kali Linux to perform a penetration test against a target system in a controlled lab environment. The material is approached from the perspective of what an actual penetration tester would do in a real-life penetration testing scenario. 

This is the fourth and final module in the Cyber-Physical Industry course; however, it can be taught as a standalone module.  The purpose of this module is to introduce students to physical and cognitive ergonomics (human factors), and explain why this discipline is so critical for cybersecurity management.
