Overview

A security operations centre (SOC) is a facility operating 24 x 7 x 365, where enterprise information systems (data centres, servers, networks, desktops and other endpoints) are monitored, assessed, and defended around the clock. SOC Analysts are the backbone for the operations of a SOC. This course prepares you to be ready for the real-world challenges of a SOC Analyst.

Skills Covered

As more enterprises guided by the current state of cybersecurity, compliance and regulations are either setting up their own SOC or outsourcing SOC activities to MSSPs, there is an acute shortage of SOC Analysts / Professionals who understand all the SOC technologies and how to handle them to achieve cyber-resilience for customers.

  •  Gain in-depth knowledge of security threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, attackers’ behavior, cyber kill chain, SOC processes, procedures, technologies, and automation workflows
  •  Understand the MITRE ATT&CK Framework and able to identify attacker techniques, tactics, and procedures (TTP) to investigate indicators of compromise (IOCs) and provide automated / manual responses to eliminate the attack/incident
  •  Understand SOC and its processes, roles, responsibilities and implementation models
  •  Able to monitor and work on alerts generated based on various log sources. Ex: IDS/IPS, AV, EDR, Firewall, Network Monitoring applications, etc.
  •  Gain in-depth knowledge on all the latest defense technologies that are used in next generation SOC deployments. Ex : NGAV, SIEM, EDR, XDR, SOAR, TI, UEBA, IAM/PAM, etc.
  •  Gain knowledge of Incident Response Methodology, processes and in-depth knowledge on how to integrate SOC processes with Incident Response processes and learn how to automate them as a single workflow
  •  Able to understand the concepts of Threat Intelligence and gain in-depth knowledge on how to integrate Threat Intelligence with the SIEM, SOAR, EDR and other SOC technologies to reduce the Mean time to Detect (MTTD) and Mean time to Respond (MTTR)

Who Should Attend

Cybersecurity Analysts, Network and Security Administrators, Entry-level cybersecurity professionals, New recruits into a SOC environment.
