CAST 614 - Advanced Network Defense

Overview:

With this course you can be among the few who transcend the old idea of the hacker having all the fun, take pride being the defender, form an offensive mindset to skillfully orchestrate robust and solid defenses and reinvent popular belief by beating the hacker at his own game.

You will be evaluating advanced hacking methods of defense fortification bringing you closer to establishing perfect security best practices and methodologies you can apply to secure environments. This course provides segmentation and isolation to reduce the effectiveness of the advanced persistent threats.

CAST 614 will cover fundamental areas of fortifying your defenses by discovering methods of developing a secure baseline and how to harden your enterprise architecture from the most advanced attacks. Once a strategy for a fortified perimeter is defined the course moves on to defending against the sophisticated malware that is on the rise today and the importance of live memory analysis and real time monitoring.
