Organizations often spend a lot of money on security but still fail to properly respond to attacks. The reason is organizations often focus on doing good things but not focused on the right things that really matter. The newly updated and rewritten Security Essentials: SEC 401, shows you how to win by having a proper approach to Response. Detection is important but has minimal value if proper response is not taken. The ultimate goal of security is to control the overall damage and response is a critical component. Incident response is an area that is often discussed in security but very rarely properly implemented. Learn from cyber security expert and SEC401 course author, Dr. Eric Cole,on how to design, implement, verify and validate a proper approach to response. Learn how to use metrics to proper measure, assess and improve your overall defensive approach to security. No matter your experience or background, this webcast will not only show you how to properly perform response, but also how SEC401 can help improve your skills and take your career to the next level.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • How to build a proper incident response program
  • Performing gap analysis to improve your current plan
  • The 6 steps for effective response
  • How threat hunting fits into proactive incident response
  • Common mistakes in response and how to avoid them
