Vulnerability Risk Management


Course Summary

Managing your vulnerabilities is an important part of risk mitigation, but it’s only effective if it’s timely and holistic. In this course, you’ll learn how to use the Elastic Stack to centrally store and query your vulnerability data in real time. You will also learn how to ingest, model, explore, visualize, and alert on vulnerability scan data that could potentially span a cluster of hundreds of nodes using different features of the Elastic Stack. After completing this course, you'll be able to easily manage your system vulnerabilities from a centralized location.
