The importance of cyber security

No business is safe from cybercrime, and cyberattacks can happen when you least expect it. But having the right training can prevent or fix all kinds of nightmare issues. Not only will it keep your customers safe, but your own company data will be safe. And if the worst-case scenario does happen, cyber security training can help you and your team to respond and resolve the problem quickly and easily.

Read on for a brief overview of 5 different cyber security courses available, so you can choose the right training course for you or your team members.

1. Threat Hunting training courses

With new artificial intelligence solutions come new security threats. This course will give you the skills and confidence to fill the technical gap that exists between traditional security platforms and new ones.

The Threat Hunting course will provide you with an in-depth set of challenges incorporating web application security, network security, reverse engineering, network, PCAP analysis and more. Our advanced labs offer a safe environment for IT and security teams to develop their cyber defence skills and put them to the test against the clock.

2. Security Operations Centre (SOC) training courses

Would you like to leverage the SOC (Security Operations Centre) analyst and techniques used in vulnerability management and SIEM (Security Information Event Management) platforms? If so then this training course is for you.

With the Security Operations Centre course, you’ll gain a foundation for assessing and managing cyber risk through effective security incident triage.

3. Security Fundamentals training courses

Providing security in today’s workplace includes a mix of both physical and digital security strategies. In this course, you’ll learn the basics of how to protect everything ranging from your IT network, computer operating system, files and data, to the physical aspects you can manage.
