Cybersecurity specialists must be able to identify vulnerabilities and apply security controls to mitigate threats. In this course, you'll learn how to identify the steps attackers take to gain access to resources and examine physical security issues. Next, you'll learn how network segmentation can increase security, how attackers use zombies and botnets, and how common attacks take place. Moving on, you'll explore common hardening techniques, how to scan for vulnerabilities, and how to setup up a WSUS server. Lastly, you'll learn how to use the Metasploit framework and crack WPA2 Wi-Fi passphrases. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) CAS-004 exam.
