If your organization has an Internet connection and one or two
disgruntled employees (and whose doesn't!), your computer systems will
get attacked. From the five, ten, or even one hundred daily probes
against your Internet infrastructure to the malicious insider slowly
creeping through your most vital information assets, attackers are
targeting your systems with increasing viciousness and stealth.
By helping you understand attackers' tactics and strategies in detail,
giving you hands-on experience in finding vulnerabilities and
discovering intrusions, and equipping you with a comprehensive incident
handling plan, the in-depth information in this course helps you turn
the tables on computer attackers. This course addresses the latest
cutting-edge insidious attack vectors and the "oldie-but-goodie" attacks
that are still so prevalent, and everything in between. Instead of
merely teaching a few hack attack tricks, this course includes a
time-tested, step-by-step process for responding to computer incidents,
a detailed description of how attackers undermine systems so you can
prepare, detect, and respond to them, and a hands-on workshop for
discovering holes before the bad guys do. Additionally, the course
explores the legal issues associated with responding to computer
attacks, including employee monitoring, working with law enforcement,
and handling evidence.
This challenging course is particularly well suited to individuals who
lead or are a part of an incident handling team. Furthermore, general
security practitioners, system administrators, and security architects
will benefit by understanding how to design, build, and operate their
systems to prevent, detect, and respond to attacks.
