This five-day course is designed to provide participants with practical techniques for protecting the security of an organization's information assets and resources, beginning with concepts and proceeding on to technical implementations.
The course focuses on understanding and applying the concept of survivability through the effective management of risk, threats, policy, system configuration, availability, and personnel. The course also provides a technical foundation for working with TCP/IP security and cryptography. The final section of the course helps participants learn to design a secure network architecture managing host systems, securing network services and infrastructure, working with firewalls, and understanding functions of a security operations center.
The principles, strategies, and practices covered are applicable to most system platforms and network environments. To illustrate important concepts and security technologies, demonstrations and exercises will include implementations applicable to Linux and Windows systems as well as Cisco Internetworking equipment.
The course involves extensive hands-on laboratories utilizing heterogeneous network environment, scenario-based exercises, lecture/briefings, and open discussion to help participants develop their understanding of the problems and strategies for securing information systems and networks.
Hands-on labs and demonstrations include subjects such as: IPv6 Configuration and Risks, Analyzing Log Events and Alerts, Implementing Mail Security, and DNSSEC, as well as personal and enterprise firewalls, and hardening of Linux, Windows, and Cisco platforms in both wireless and cabled networks. Each student will have the use of a laptop for the duration of the course, as well as access to a wide variety of networked systems.
This CERT incident handling course, which provides a well-rounded understanding of incident handling practices and functions, can be used to prepare for the CERT-Certified Incident Handler Certification.
