Students will come away with the required knowledge to begin assessing their environments for security issues and an understanding of common techniques used by attackers.
Incident Detection and Threat Hunting
Students will learn techniques to detect and investigate potentially malicious activity using an open-source SIEM platform. In hands-on “purple-team” exercises, students will learn to detect and defend against techniques demonstrated in the Security Assessments course. This will include a review of logs and forensic examination of network traffic.
Incident Response Exercises
