Incident Response and Risk Management

This is a CSI Linux Incident Response and CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) combined course.  In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to pass the CySA+ along with gaining key skills that will allow you to test security and identify risks.  It is suggested you use CSI Linux because there are many labs in this course.  

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+ examination is designed for IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts, or threat intelligence analysts. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization with the end goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization.”

  • This course will teach you the fundamental principles of using threat and vulnerability analysis tools plus digital forensic tools 
  • Aimed at IT professionals with (or seeking) job roles such as IT Security Analyst, Security Operations Center (SOC) Analyst, Vulnerability Analyst, Cybersecurity Specialist, Threat Intelligence Analyst, and Security Engineer
Objectives
  • Identify tools and techniques to use to perform an environmental reconnaissance of a target network or security system.
  • Collect, analyze, and interpret security data from multiple log and monitoring sources.
  • Use network host and web application vulnerability assessment tools and interpret the results to provide effective mitigation.
  • Understand and remediate identity management, authentication, and access control issues.
  • Participate in a senior role within an incident response team and use forensic tools to identify the source of an attack.
  • Understand the use of frameworks, policies, and procedures and report on security architecture with recommendations for effective compensating controls

Penetration Testing and Exploitation

Knowing how to think like the enemy is a massive advantage when trying to defend against or track them down.  This course focuses on the offensive side of security while preparing you for the CSI Linux Penetration Testing and Exploitation, EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEHv11), and CompTIA's Pentest+ certifications.  By the end of the training, you will have learned the base process of conducting a penetration test risk assessment to identify and take advantage of weaknesses and vulnerabilities.  You will also have access to a large test back to help you prepare for the three certifications listed above.

Pivoting and Tunneling Traffic

This course covers how to communicate system to system during an assessment.  One of the biggest challenges is that you found a vulnerability to exploit, but you run into a road block...  The firewall is blocking incoming connections outside the vulnerable port or you don't have a static IP address.  As ethical hackers and pen testers, we may be working out of a hotel room at night.  How can you connect to the target systems on the inside of their network?  This course explains the challenges in depth and walks through solutions to many of these common challenges.

Security+ Online Training
