Who should attend

Technical staff members who manage or support networked information systems and have

  • two years of practical experience with networked systems or equivalent training/education
  • some degree of familiarity with the ISO/OSI 7-layered reference model as well as TCP/IP, and major network operating systems such as Windows and Linux

About the course

This four day hands-on course is designed to increase the knowledge and skills of technical staff charged with administering and securing information systems and networks. Cybersecurity topics such as network monitoring, intrusion detection and response, digital forensics, and threat hunting will offer a comprehensive defense-in-depth experience. Each participant will have direct administrative access to a wide variety of networked systems which will be leveraged throughout the course. Instruction will consist of cybersecurity tool demonstrations, individual labs, and team-based exercises modeled from real-world threat scenarios.

As part of an internal security team, you will use a set of already deployed cybersecurity tools to detect and respond to malicious activity on your network. A series of quizzes and automated checks will be used to prompt your investigation and evaluate your understanding of the ongoing events. Three team-based scenarios will be used along with several individual hands-on exercises to build critical cyber skills. This course also provides hands-on experience with some latest developments in cybersecurity to include threat hunting and remote live forensics.
