SOC Analyst Prep Workshop
May 18 @ 8:30 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm
Are you an aspiring SOC Analyst? SOC (Security Operations Center) Analysts specialize in identifying and utilizing defensive skills and techniques. Especially with today’s complex technical attacks, SOC Analysts are highly sought after in the Cybersecurity field. SOC Analysts mitigate and remedy the damages done by these technical exploits with proficient use of industry tools. This course will feature these tools and techniques in preparation to defend against the offensive approaches that are taught in our Pentester Prep course.
Our lead instructor, Tyrone E. Wilson, will be returning to his roots to do a deep dive into the SOC structure within this workshop, as the defensive side is where it all began for him. With all the collected notes over the years of his experiences and accomplishments, he would like to give back to the cyber community by sharing his knowledge to successfully demonstrate the use of these tools and defensive techniques.
The ENTIRE CLASS will work as a team of SOC Analysts/Incident Responders that will address several scenarios. Before we begin, we drive home the fact that teamwork and constant communication is a must in order to be successful. The class must enumerate the current network environment to identify all of the hosts, ports, services, and vulnerabilities. As the class moves forward through these tasks we will begin to identify and talk about common threats, attacks, and vulnerability testing. As time progresses students will also identify SIEM tools such as Security Onion and Splunk.
