Analyzing Network Data


Course Summary

Network security monitoring (NSM) takes a bird’s-eye view of an organization, with the mindset that a threat actor will eventually need to cross a network boundary in order to accomplish their objective. In this course, you will learn about the principles of NSM, common tools (Bro and Suricata), and how to leverage the Elastic Stack for analytics. After completing this class, you’ll be able to use the Elastic Stack to harden your network security by reducing time to detection.
