Course Description

This 13-video course explores SecOps (security and operations) engineering concepts. Learners will observe how security and operations are fused together, and learn to integrate system infrastructure security with normal business operations by applying engineering principles. Begin by learning the steps for infrastructure hardening of the operating system, including server workstations, routers, devices. You will examine server hardening, including how to turn off unneeded services, and remove unneeded software. Next, learn how to analyze and harden Windows 10, and to use security devices, and implement intrusion detection and prevention systems. You will examine the practical use of IDS (intrusion detection system) to detect activity that appears to be a possible intrusion, to log it, and to notify the administrator. You will then examine IPS (intrusion prevention system), which takes the additional step of shutting down the suspicious activity. Finally, you will explore firewall concepts, including stateless firewalls, how to use SPI (stateful packet inspection), and how to place them to improve your security network.
