Course Description

Explore the use of security controls with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in this 14-video course, which examines anatomy of security controls, from common to advanced and complex. You will discover how to test and monitor security controls, including the most basic quick-win controls for several control types. Key concepts covered here include security controls in relation to the overall NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and how security controls are relevant in SecOps; the major security control types and components of a security control; and defensive and quick-win controls for major control types. Next, learn how they are compromised, and steps for root cause analysis; learn the CIS critical security controls and how they are implemented; and observe how to assess security controls, including establishing security metrics for risk management framework and reporting. Learn how to investigate security controls when one fails and describe how to mitigate outcomes; learn processes of auditing security controls; and learn potential risk scenarios and how to mitigate and respond using security controls, including how to test controls to effectively respond.
