This course explores the general concepts of threat mitigation for SecOps (security and operations) engineers. In this 13 videos, learners will observe the three basic concepts for threat mitigation and threat intelligence: identification, prevention, and responses. This course examines acceptable risk levels. You will analyze malware classification, such as viruses, worms, logic bombs, and backdoor software. You will learn to mitigation malware, and threats to websites; and examine types of ransomware, including Cryptolocker, Cryptowall, WannaCry, and Bad Rabbit, as well as explore possible solutions. You will learn how DoS (denial of service) is conducted, and see examples of specific attacks; then examine cross-Site Scripting, parameter traversal, and cross-Site Request Forgery. You will learn to address insider threats, and how to mitigate social engineering, phishing, and insecure protocols. Learners will examine how to integrate analysis into mitigating these threats. Finally, this course explores cyberthreat intelligence, and suggests that you subscribe to the National Vulnerability Database, and its feeds.
