Certified SecOps Professional Training Overview

This Certified SecOps Professional training course provides delegates with a comprehensive understanding of the main principles of SecOps. SecOps is a governance approach that requires IT Security and IT Operations teams to cooperate for the purpose of mitigating cyber threats more swiftly and effectively. The collaboration ensures teams share strategies and accountability to determine the likelihood of vulnerabilities being disclosed. Essentially, SecOps is about beating hackers to the exposure so that breaches are prevented.

Organisations of today are constantly having to protect against cybersecurity attacks and react to breaches in an appropriate manner. The teams of people responsible for the general preservation of security systems are positioned in Security Operations Centers (SOCs), which will be explored during this SecOps training course. Delegates will acquire knowledge of how a SOC operates, including how they assess incidents, what techniques they use to monitor network security and the tools they adopt to identify where cyber threats are present.

As well as this, during Certified SecOps Professional training, individuals will receive a detailed introduction to SecOps, which will explain what SecOps is and what its objectives are. Delegates will also become familiar with the SOC playbook and will learn how to react to security incidents appropriately. Following this, an investigation of security violations will take place, whereby topics such as the characteristics of common attacks, malicious activity, and suspicious behaviour will feature. Additionally, delegates will gain knowledge of how to analyse vulnerabilities and formulate a plan designed for incident response.

Thus, by attainment of this SecOps Professional certification, delegates will have gained a sufficient understanding of the functions of SecOps, and possess the ability to effectively protect from and respond to security weaknesses.
