Assessing Network Vulnerabilities 4-Day Course
Security professionals are overwhelmed by abundant security advisories, intrusion and firewall alerts, and vulnerability reports. Knowledge of actual hacking techniques and scenarios permits a more effective response against the growing threats from Internet access and presence. The 4-day instructor led course exposes students to exploits and teaches them how to run vulnerability scans to better secure networks, servers and workstations.
What you will learn is how to:
- Assess the risk to your systems from vulnerabilities and exploit
- Conduct vulnerability scans of your networks, servers and workstations
- Integrate advisories and alerts into your security practices and procedures
- Respond to evolving risk levels by prioritizing your defensive resources
- Manage an ongoing vulnerability assessment process
