Hacker Tools, Techniques, and Incident Handling (SEC504) Online Training
This intermediate SEC504 training prepares learners to detect and respond to threats that your company will inevitably face in the digital realm, deploying a dynamic response according to the attack.
It's a cliche to claim that the best defense is a strong offense, but in the case of digital security it's a cliche that's as true as it's ever been. One of the most fundamental skills a security administrator can gain is an understanding of the tools that hostile actors use to penetrate networks and extract valuable information.
This training on hacker tools, techniques and incident handling is about recognizing the strengths and limitations of tools that will be deployed against you and your network so that you can prevent them before they occur, stop them when they do, and understand what happened afterward.
After finishing the videos in this SEC504 training, you'll know how to detect and respond to threats that your company will inevitably face in the digital realm, deploying a dynamic response according to the attack.
For anyone who leads an IT team, this Cyber Security training can be used to onboard new security admins, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cyber Security reference resource.
