8.Exploring Protocol Analyzers

In this lesson, we will be exploring the concept of protocol analyzers, examining what they are, their functions and showing how it helps network engineers and other IT personnel to better understand network traffic. Also conducting a lab demo using Wireshark to conduct forensics on network protocol such as DNS, ARP, UDP, TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS.

1.Principles of Network Security

In this lesson, we will be exploring the principles of networking, network security threats & attack, network vulnerabilities, highlighting the difference between threats, malware, vulnerability and risks, examine the evolution of common security threats. Exploring different types of attacks and the tools used by threat actors, highlighting the different stages of network attacks, exploring common malware Behaviours and common ways of identifying network security threats.

2.Risk of Network Attacks

In this Lesson, we will be exploring in-depth attacks that could occur within the OSI model, highlighting some reasons why networks and data are attacked, also looking at the impacts of network attacks on business. Examine the war against cybercrime, exploring the mission of security operations centre (SOC), highlighting the roles people play in a SOC environment, and also focus on the technologies in the SOC environment and lastly, we will conducting a Lab showing how to extract an executable from a PCAP with Wireshark.

3.Exploring Industrial Espionage

In this lesson, we will be exploring the concept of Industrial espionage, examining some Industrial espionage example, highlighting some impact of Industrial espionage on business, exploring threat Landscape, In-depth focus on ransomware as a service(RaaS), examining Wanna Cry ransomware, it's Characteristics, identify the common Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) for common ransomware. And lastly conducting a lab demonstration to how to extract an Executable from a PCAP on Wireshark.

4.Examine Threat Landscape in-depth

In this lesson, we will be exploring the concept of Pervasive Ransomware Threat in-depth where we will be highlighting on some RAAS operations, examine some common trends, activities, tactics, techniques, and procedures in Cybercrime, and lastly, we will conduct a lab demonstration showing how to map a network using network mapping tools.
