Cyber Threats Detection and Mitigation Training Course with Hands-on Labs

Networking Signature Development Understood with this Cyber Threats Detection and Mitigation Training

Cyber Threats Detection and Mitigation Training, Cyber threats are increasing at an alarming rate every year and the ability for organizations to defend against full-scaled distributed attacks quickly and effectively is becoming more and more difficult. In order to be safe and secure on today’s Internet, organizations must learn to become more automated. This means being capable of characterizing attacks across hundreds or even thousands of IP sessions and improving their ability to recognize attack commonalities. With intrusion detection systems and trained network security auditors, organizations have a reliable means to prioritize, and isolate only the most critical threats in real time.

Taught by leaders in network defense who work in the computer security industry, this Cyber Threats Detection and Mitigation Training course demonstrates how to defend large scale network infrastructure by building and maintaining intrusion detection systems, network security auditing, and incident response techniques.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Cyber Threats Detection and Mitigation Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
