Security Cyber Analytics

The world has converged today, especially with everything and everyone connected across the cyber space. Every day, massive data is exchanged across the cyber world, a lot of which is highly sensitive information that needs to be protected from all sorts of cybercrimes. Cybersecurity is a must-have for information security and IT professionals, in order to safeguard their business interests. Monitoring and threat detection are crucial if businesses are to stay ahead of the curve. Security Analytics is an approach to cybersecurity focused on the analysis of data to produce proactive security measures.

Star Security Cyber Analytics is a thorough training program that will teach learners to spot vulnerabilities, fend off attacks, and immediately respond to emergencies. The program explains the use of various security analytics tools to implement real-time monitoring of servers, endpoints and network traffic, consolidate and coordinate diverse event data from application and network logs, and perform forensic analysis to better understand attack methods and system vulnerabilities.
