Incident Handling and Hacking Techniques

Course description

This course enables participants to turn the tables on computer attackers by helping you understand their tactics and strategies by providing participants with hands on experience in finding vulnerabilities and discovering intrusions, and equipping you with a comprehensive incident handling plan. It addresses the latest cutting-edge insidious attack vectors, the “oldie-but-goodie” attacks that are still prevalent, and everything in between. Instead of merely teaching a few hack attack tricks, this course provides a time-tested, step-by-step process to respond to computer incidents and a detailed description of how attackers undermine systems so the participants can prevent, detect, and respond to them. Participants will experience practical workshop that focuses on scanning, exploiting, and defending systems. Participants will benefit by understanding how to design, build, and operate their systems to thwart attacks. This course also addresses incident handling methods used when information security is compromised.
