  • Includes Assessment
  • Earns a Badge
Understanding the characteristics of various types of attacks goes a long way in helping cybersecurity analysts prevent and detect malicious activity. Knowledge of techniques and attacks, such as buffer overflows and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, facilitates mitigation planning. In this course, you will begin by exploring SYN flood attacks and their relationship with the three-way Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) handshake. Next, you will spoof network traffic and discover different types of buffer overflow attacks. Then you will investigate DDoS attack mitigations and run a denial-of-service (DoS) attack against a website. Finally, you will compromise a client web browser, run a structured query language (SQL) injection and reverse shell attack, and crack Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) passwords. This course can be used to prepare for the ISACA(r) Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC(r)) certification.
