Course Summary

To minimize costly security breaches, organizations need to evaluate the risk in their enterprise from an array of vulnerabilities. In this training course, you learn how to expose infrastructure, server, and desktop vulnerabilities, create and interpret reports, configure vulnerability scanners, detect points of exposure, and prevent network exploitation.

Course Objective:

You Will Learn How To

  • Detect and respond to vulnerabilities, and minimise exposure to security breaches
  • Employ real-world exploits and evaluate their effect on your systems
  • Configure vulnerability scanners to identify weaknesses
  • Analyse the results of vulnerability scans
  • Establish an efficient strategy for vulnerability management
