PURPOSE:
This course is the first step to joining a security operations center (SOC) and is especially designed for current and aspiring Tier I and Tier II SOC analysts to achieve proficiency in performing entry-level and intermediate-level operations.

As the security landscape is expanding, a SOC team must offers high-quality IT-security services to detect potential cyber threats/attacks actively and quickly respond to security incidents. Organizations need skilled SOC Analysts who can serve as the front-line defenders, warning other professionals of emerging and present cyber threats.

This two day online workshop will helps the candidate acquire trending and in-demand technical skills through instruction by one of the most experienced trainers in the industry. The course focuses on creating new career opportunities through extensive, thorough knowledge with enhanced level capabilities for dynamically contributing to a SOC team. In this session, we will be covering the key fundamentals of SOC operations, before relaying the knowledge of log management and correlation, SIEM deployment, advanced incident detection, and incident response using SOAR will also be discussed. Additionally, the candidate will learn to manage various SOC processes and collaborate with CSIRT at the time of need and develop the strategy for building an automated Cybersecurity SOC Playbook.

Recent years have witnessed the evolution of cyber risks, creating an unsafe environment for organizations across major business sectors.

To handle these sophisticated threats, enterprises need advanced cybersecurity solutions along with traditional methods of defense. Practicing good cybersecurity hygiene and implementing an appropriate line of defense, and incorporating a security operations center (SOC) has become reasonable solutions. SOC Analysys requires continuous 24x7 coverage for performing security monitoring, security incident management, vulnerability management, security device management, and network flow monitoring.

This course will develop a SOC Analyst who can continuously monitors and detects potential threats, triages the alerts, and appropriately escalates them. Without a SOC analyst, processes such as monitoring, detection, analysis, and triaging will lose their effectiveness, ultimately negatively affecting the organization.

The training course flow will be a mix of lectures & classroom discussions so that participants can have a detailed understanding of various components of cybersecurity technologies.

AFTER COMPLETING THIS WORKSHOP, YOU WILL  BE ABLE TO:
Handle sophisticated threats landscape, enterprises using advanced cybersecurity solutions along with traditional methods of defense. Practicing good cybersecurity hygiene and implementing an appropriate line of defense. This session will enable SOC Analysts with a reasonable knowledge in smartly managing continuous 24x7 coverage for performing security monitoring, security incident management, vulnerability management, security device management, and network flow monitoring. In a nut shell, this course will develop a SOC Analyst who can continuously monitors and detects potential threats, triages the alerts, and appropriately escalating them to the next level, if required.
