In today’s complex security landscape, it is not enough for infosec teams to set firewall rules and IDSs and hope for the best. Organizations need to have a clear understanding of their threat landscape, what data and systems they’re protecting, where the data resides, which assets are most valuable, and how to fine tune defensive controls as the threats and the company’s focus change. To make this all happen, security professionals must continually test and assess their network and applications through a combination of manual and automated techniques to ensure controls are working properly and delivering actionable alerts. The old adage, “You cannot manage what you do not measure” is truer now than ever.

In this two-day class, attendees will learn and practice hands-on, real-world assessment techniques. From working with vulnerability scanners to ensuring compliance to industry standards, attendees will explore the techniques and procedures followed by effective security professionals. Some of the highlights will include learning how to weed out false positives and catch false negatives, mapping the network and assets using the map to identify system vulnerabilities and testing authorizations and permissions. At the completion of this course, security professionals will be able to ensure a comprehensive ongoing security assessment practice for their organization.
