Continuous Monitoring And Security Operations



Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations will teach you how to strengthen your skills to undertake that proactive approach. Security monitoring is the automated process of collecting and analyzing indicators of potential security threats, then triaging these threats with the appropriate action.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Analyze a security architecture for deficiencies

  • Apply the principles learned in the course to design a defensible security architecture

  • Understand the importance of a detection-dominant security architecture and Security Operations Centers (SOC)

  • Identify the key components of Network Security Monitoring (NSM)/Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM)/Continuous Monitoring (CM)

  • Determine appropriate security monitoring needs for organizations of all sizes

  • Implement robust Network Security Monitoring/Continuous Security Monitoring

  • Determine requisite monitoring capabilities for a SOC environment

Targeted Audience

  • IT professionals

  • Security professionals

  • Auditors

  • Site administrators

  • General management

  • Anyone tasked with managing and protecting the integrity of the network infrastructure

  • Anyone already familiar and involved with IT/cyber/digital security and seeking to build on their fundamental principles of security.
