This course covers the basic theory and practice of detecting and preventing intrusions and attacks in cyberspace. The study emphasis is on methods and tools to monitor for and identify system vulnerabilities and threats and prevent attacks.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Describe internal and external intrusion threats and risks.
- Create intrusion event handling procedures.
- Identify current penetration testing tools, technique and procedures.
- Apply current penetration testing tools, technique and procedures.
- Perform network and system discovery and footprinting.
- Describe Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) principles, tools and techniques.
- Evaluate IDS/IPS tools.
- Create IDS/IPS rules and sensors to prevent and detect intrusions.
- Test IDS/IPS rules and sensors.
- Respond to detected intrusions appropriately.
- Internal and external intrusion threats and risks
- Intrusion event handling procedures
- Penetration testing tools, technique and procedures
- Hands-on work on penetration testing
