Security is scary.
It's our job as IT managers, admins, developers of one kind or another, or even security professionals to ensure that our applications and services are running smoothly. And that includes maintaining safe and reliable connectivity for our teams and end users. But no matter how many best practices and automated monitoring solutions we adopt, there'll always be another threat trying to ruin your day.
You know you and your team should be doing a better job incorporating security into everything you do, but there are just so many threats out there and just so much to know. Where should you even begin?
In this short course, you'll learn about the core principles driving modern cybersecurity operations. We'll talk about how to perform comprehensive risk assessments for your infrastructure, develop protocols for risk control, and build effective plans for incident management and recovery.
When you're done, you won't have any specific new skills for using log analysis, penetration testing, or vulnerability assessment tools. Instead I'll give you a big picture view of what processes you'll need to adopt so that you'll know which tools are right for you, and so you can be confident you're not leaving anything out.
