Course Overview:

TechNow has worked worldwide enterprise infrastructures for over 30 years and has developed demos and labs to exemplify the techniques required to demonstrate technologies that effectively support CTI.  This course integrates well with our courses TN-575: Open Source Network Security Monitoring and TN-865: Wireshark Network Traffic and Security Analysis .

TechNow develops Cyber Ranges and makes them available for conferences in support of annual meetings for Cyber Threat Response Teams.  Developing scenarios and reacting to them appropriately is a big part of the value in understanding the contexts required to comprehend valuable CTI.   As with many advanced TechNow security courses, there is a large hands-on ratio.  This course helps Cyber Protection Teams (CPT), Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO), and Mission Defense Teams (MDT) to collect, analyze and apply targeted cyber intelligence to defensive operations in order to proactively act on and tune response to attacks by cyber adversaries.  CPT, DCO, and MDT can take preemptive action by utilizing CTI, understanding CTI tools, techniques and procedures (TTPs) needed to generate and consume timely and relevant intelligence to improve resilience and prevention.

This course focuses on the collection, classification, and exploitation of knowledge about adversaries and their TTPs. .  MDT puts us close the mission and helps define the internal context to be analyzed against the CTI.  TechNow pushes the student to truly understand how to think about and use CTI to make a difference.

Attendees to TN-905: Cyber Threat Intelligence Analysis will receive TechNow approved course materials and expert instruction.

Course Overview:

This course is instructed with an instructor in the classroom with provided lab equipment and Cyber Range.

Students enrolled in the Certified Network Defender course, will gain a detailed understanding and hands on ability to function in real life situations involving network defense. They will gain the technical depth required to actively design a secure network in your organization. This program will be akin to learning math instead of just using a calculator.

This course gives you the fundamental understanding of the true construct of data transfer, network technologies, software technologies so that you understand how networks operate, understand what software is automating and how to analyze the subject material.

You will learn how to protect, detect and respond to, and predict threats on the network.  This builds upon the typical knowledge and skills of Network Administrators in network components, traffic, performance and utilization, network topology, system locations, and security policies.

You will learn network defense fundamentals, the application of network security controls, protocols, perimeter appliances, secure IDS, VPN and firewall configuration. You will then learn the intricacies of network traffic signature, analysis and vulnerability scanning which will help you when you design greater network security policies and successful incident response plans. These skills will help you foster resiliency and continuity of operations during attacks.

This course supports a certification that is DoD approved 8570 Baseline Certificate and meets DoD 8140/8570 training requirements.

Course Overview:

TN-542: Establishing a Security Operations Center (SOC) People, Processes, and Technologies is the big picture overview of a SOC, other courses provide a deep dive into the technologies that a SOC may utilize. This course addresses the internal workings of staff, skills required, required authorizations, internal agreements, and setting appropriate expectation levels of a SOC within budget constraints. A SOC is not a one size fits all, the instructor has decades of security experience and brings to the table opportunities to discuss what can work within constraints. Many organizations are coming to the realization that some level of a SOC is now required and to learn just what decisions need to be made: Out-sourced, In-sourced, budgets, capabilities and many more. Students leave with a worksheet of how to progress when they get back to their organization.

TN-542: Establishing a Security Operations Center (SOC) People, Processes, and Technologies – Is a course that incorporates lecture, demos, and group exercises for standing up a Security Operations Center (SOC). Students learn strategies and resources required to deploy, build, and run Network Security Monitoring (NSM) and work roles and flows for a SOC. No network is bullet proof and when attackers access your network, this course will show you options and resources to build a security net to detect, contain, and control the attacker. Examples on what it takes to architect an NSM solution to identify sophisticated attackers and a response strategy. Properly implemented detection and response technologies is integral to incident response and provides the responders timely information and tools to react to the incident. Effective demonstrations are given of Open Source technologies that build up a SOC, but any software can be used and demonstrations are provided to demonstrate technology families not push a specific solution.

TN-542: Establishing a Security Operations Center (SOC) People, Processes, and Technologies demonstrations utilize a cyber range that gives each student in-depth knowledge of monitoring live systems to include: Cisco, Windows, Linux, IoT, and Firewalls; and software and services to provide orchestrate Incident Response, Intelligence Analysis, and Hunt Operations.

Attendees to TN-542: Establishing a Security Operations Center (SOC) People, Processes, and Technologies class will receive TechNow approved course materials and expert instruction.
