Ever wondered what it is like to be on the front line of defense in the Cybersecurity industry? If so, you may be interested in becoming a Security Operations Center (SOC) Analyst.

SOC Analysts are highly sought-after individuals, who identify compromised machines and malicious actors. These individuals utilize defensive security skills and techniques that are commonly used in the industry, while working to mitigate any damages that may have occurred.

In this training, participants will oversee a network that is currently under attack. They will be taught various strategies to help defend against several attack scenarios. A few of the tools and technologies that participants will explore includes Security Onion, Wireshark, Splunk and Nessus. By no means is the course and its objectives all encompassing. As a participant, it is highly recommended that you perform additional research and self-study to continue and maintain your established knowledge and toolkit.  

The provided content is listed below as a guide for the course and is subject to change. We appreciate your support and hope that you enjoy the training. We look forward to your participation and feedback as well.

    I took the Cover6Solutions SOC Analysts workshop and thought it was the most valuable workshops I’ve ever had.

    It spanned across two days and within those two days, I got to learn so much information that I didn’t even learn in college. There is a lot of ‘hands on’ opportunity to practice what you’ve learned in the class.

    Tyrone, the instructor, is highly knowledgeable in the cybersec field. He is very approachable and always willing to help, which made the class more ‘comfortable’ and useful at the same time.

    I highly recommend Cover6 Solutions to anyone who’s looking for cybersec workshops.

    +hands on
    +good pace
    + important information
    +excellent instructor

    Cover6Solutions SOC Analyst prep workshop was a great two-day information packed experience. Tyrone makes sure to explain each topic in depth and plenty of examples, to prepare you for a fun hands on experience on both days, and a Defend the Flag on the second. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to enhance their skills. Keep an open mind and think outside the box! This class will make you think and open your eyes to things we normally would not think of!

    **Side note after attending all of the workshops offered by Cover6, it has helped me to figure out what I want to do specifically Cybersecurity field and I am positive it will help you as well. They are all great workshops. I have repeated the Pentest Prep Workshop and will repeat this one!

    Thank you for a information packed, hands on experience please keep up the great work!

    Hello guys,
    I took a SOC Analyst class with Cover6Solutions and it was amazing. Not a lot of PowerPoint slides but you will have lot of hands on. The instructor, Tyrone gives you what you need for the job so no time to waste. I learned a lot from there in 2 days than the 2 years I spent in my MS in cyber security class.
    If you are looking for a good place to learn the real stuff with hands on , please go to Cover6Solutions.

    Thank you Tyrone!

    From the content to the instructor, the content is impeccable. The training challenges you, keeps you engaged even after class! The instructor is very knowledgeable and provides examples that will stick in your mind forever. He also shares very useful tips and tricks.
    Also, be prepared to take some serious notes, follow him as much as you can and take advantage of the extra material provided once you signup. For people more experienced who fear that this may not be as challenging, the lab is setup for all levels and gives room for creativity on the trainee side.
    Definitely worth it.
