Training course outline

Existing solutions in proactive network defence often rely on monitoring solutions that generate alerts and respond based on pre-defined parameters that validate the presence of active threats. Organisations use these solutions to protect from known or unknown attacks and mitigate the impact of vulnerabilities exploited locally or remotely. The plethora of these solutions and interoperability issues between them causes integration challenges within existing security operations centres (SoCs). Security orchestration solutions promise to deliver better threat analysis and active response to security incidents. This course introduces security orchestration principles, tools, and techniques to automate the identification of suspicious activities to ensure seamless integration of security solutions in modern security operation centres.
