The access to this course is restricted to Hakin9 Premium or IT Pack Premium Subscription

As the threat landscape continues to shift and change, so too has the information security industry. This course will focus on the area of incident response. The purpose is to introduce incident response to students by illustrating tools, techniques, and procedures that may be used to enhance or contribute to an incident response program. Students will walk away with knowledge of tracking incidents, obtaining indicators of compromise, creating incident response reports, and obtaining artifacts.


Course is self-paced, pre-recorded

18 CPE points
