Detecting and Mitigating Attacks Using Your Network Infrastructure

Learn leading network security practices from experts who develop these techniques and put them to practical use.

Overview

Security engineering teams often focus on the security of networked workstations, servers and applications, neglecting the network itself. Many networks also receive only rudimentary security implementations that are often deployed inconsistently. These scenarios not only fail to completely protect the network from the threats of today, they fail to fully utilize the network to detect and mitigate attacks against the computing infrastructure of an organization.

During this course students will learn leading network security practices from experts who develop these techniques and put them to practical use. The techniques covered in this course are not limited to those typically thought of as “security features”; this course will detail how to leverage innate network functionality—such as routing protocols and NetFlow—to provide a full range of attack identification and mitigation capabilities. This course is organized around a proven six phase approach to incident response, which moves from preparation through post mortem, and includes extensive demonstrations and hands-on lab work.
