The Course

The Certified SOC Analyst (CSA) course is and important step to joining a security operations center (SOC). The course trains current and aspiring Tier I and Tier II SOC analysts to add to their proficiency in performing entry-level and intermediate-level operations.

The course leverages our trainers who are some of the best in the industry. You will be able to acquire trending and in-demand technical skills. The course aims to enhance your career opportunities by providing the platform to gain extensive knowledge with enhanced level capabilities for dynamically contributing to a SOC team. The self-paced online course thoroughly covers the fundamentals of SOC operations, before relaying the knowledge of log management and correlation, SIEM deployment, advanced incident detection, and incident response. Additionally, you will learn to manage various SOC processes and to collaborate with CSIRT at the time of need.

 

Why this course?

As the security landscape is expanding, a SOC team offers high quality IT-security services to actively detect potential cyber threats/attacks and quickly respond to security incidents. Organizations need skilled SOC Analysts who can serve as the front-line defenders, warning other professionals of emerging and present cyber threats.

The lab-intensive CSA program employs a holistic approach to deliver elementary as well as advanced knowledge of how to identify and validate intrusion attempts. You will learn to use SIEM solutions and predictive capabilities using threat intelligence. You will learn the practical aspect of SIEM by using advanced and most frequently used tools. You will learn to perform enhanced threat detection using the predictive capabilities of Threat Intelligence.

As cyber risks continue to evolve, players from an expanding number of sectors experience unsafe cyber environments.

Enterprises need advanced cybersecurity solutions along with traditional methods of defense to handle ever more sophisticated threats. To counter the threats, practicing good cybersecurity hygiene and implementing an appropriate line of defense, including incorporating a SOC have become reasonable solutions. The SOC team must provide “follow-the-sun” coverage for performing security monitoring, security incident management, vulnerability management, security device management, and network flow monitoring.

A SOC Analyst continuously monitors and detects potential threats, triages, and appropriately escalates the alerts. Processes such as monitoring, detection, analysis, and triaging will lose their effectiveness, ultimately negatively affecting the organization, without a SOC in place.
