CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+: Threat Intelligence
Your organization's security posture is critical to its success-and security technicians must be aware of known and emerging security threats from a variety of sources. Learners begin this 14-video course by exploring various ways for security technicians to keep up-to-date and ahead of the curve. Examine various security intelligence sources and how to use the MITRE corporation's invaluable, trademarked ATT&CK knowledge base. Learners next discuss threat intelligence collection, threat classification for prioritization, and different sources and motivations of IT threats. Not sure what the bug bounty program is? Confused by false positives-mislabeled security alerts-and how to handle them? This course gives you the information you need. Become familiar with the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), which provides a way to allocate or assign a score to a vulnerability: the higher the score, the bigger the threat. Then go on to examine the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). The course helps to prepare learners for CompTIA+ Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) CS0-002 certification exam.
