Kaspersky unveils new online cybersecurity training:‘Security Operations and Threat Hunting’
Woburn, MA – September 1, 2022 — Developed by Kaspersky’s own specialists, ‘Security Operations and Threat Hunting’ is a new course in Kaspersky’s Expert Training portfolio that helps businesses enhance or even build a security operations center (SOC) from scratch, and improve SOC’s and security team skills in threat hunting, incident detection and investigation. The course guides users through the SOC structure, threat intelligence, and relevant attacks, while the on-demand format and virtual hands-on labs allow training with the student’s own pace.
This new training opportunity offers a comprehensive guide facilitated
by experienced course leaders, including the head of Kaspersky SOC, the head of
Kaspersky SOC Consulting, and an SOC analyst and researcher. In addition to security
operations center’s structure, expert roles, processes, and tools the training focuses
on modern attacks’ tactics, techniques and procedures for Windows, Linux and
networks, and how to deal with them.
Attacks such as Windows credentials dumping and exploitation through services, Golden and Silver tickets, Linux capabilities abuse, spoofing, and more will be covered.
Participants will gain a clear understanding of the SOC as part of cyber defense strategy, and learn also how to plan and organize security monitoring and use threat intelligence services, detect and investigate malicious activity with the ELK stack. This knowledge and skillset will be relevant to any specialist involved in security operations and threat hunting, including SOC professionals with both middle and advanced levels of expertise.
The training provides six-month access to the course and 100 hours of hands-on labs. Students can take it when and wherever they like within six months after access code activation.
“Enterprises need to bridge the expertise gap and increase the effectiveness of their security operations,” comments Sergey Soldatov, head of Kaspersky SOC. “While the question of additional investment is always sensitive, the online education may be the solution to achieve their goals. Keeping in mind this business challenge, we developed several expert training courses on threat hunting, incident response and malware analysis, along with this new one. Kaspersky expert training brings together our recent expertise and the convenient on-demand format so students can combine education process with their work duties. The course also helps individual experts improve personal skills to unlock more career opportunities.”
