In Detail

Technology continues to evolve more rapidly than ever, and the demand for enterprises to continuously update their policies is more vital than ever. No longer are attackers continuing to throw sophisticated attacks that can cripple a business (ex. Ransomware) at the largest companies. Small and medium-sized businesses are no longer safe, and in many cases after a cyber-attack, companies are rarely prepared for future incidents.

In this course, we’ll cover threat and vulnerability management. We introduce you to the core components of comprehensive vulnerability assessment, and provide the hands-on instruction necessary to produce a vigorous defensive strategy from day one.

The course is focused on equipping information security personnel from midsize to large organizations charged with effectively and efficiently securing a few hundred or more systems. By the end of the course, you’ll build a solid base around the entire vulnerability management process including the understanding of vulnerabilities, identifying and ranking the security issues, and recommending solutions to remediate the security issues. This process will also help to prevent security breaches.


This video course is for ethical hackers, penetration testers, cyber security professionals, network engineers, web security specialists, application security experts and information security professionals, and administrators.
