SOC Analysts are highly sought-after individuals, who identify compromised machines and malicious actors. These individuals utilize defensive security skills and techniques that are commonly used in the industry, while working to mitigate any damages that may have occurred. In this training, participants will oversee a network that is currently under attack. They will be taught various strategies to help defend against several attack scenarios. A few of the tools and technologies that participants will explore includes Security Onion, Wireshark, Splunk and Nessus. By no means is the course and its objectives all encompassing. As a participant, it is highly recommended that you perform additional research and self-study to continue and maintain your established knowledge and toolkit.
