Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm
Duration: 9 Days
The Linux operating system is used on most network devices and security appliances. Thus, a cybersecurity practitioner who is not familiar with Linux, will be unable to effectively defend these systems, increasing the potential threat level of the network.
This course is suitable for participants who have limited to no Linux experience as they will be introduced to the Linux operating system and will learn about its components, usage and logs.
Future cybersecurity analysts who possess a good understanding and familiarity of Linux will be more adept at defending, investigating and identifying anomalies as well as attacks over Linux-based systems.
This module is part of Higher Certificate of Cyber Security (Foundation).
Being a very common and popular operating system (especially for servers that are highly targeted by attackers), any cybersecurity analyst must know how to use, monitor and investigate Linux machines which this course will equip the learner with.
The course enables learners to:
- Gain practical experience using Linux systems
- Learn how to efficiently handle Linux files
- Obtain familiarity with Linux logs
- Write Bash scripts
- Gain experience in Linux’s network aspects (sniffing, logs, services)
- Introduction to Linux
- CLI basics
- Users Management
- User Settings
- Bash Scripting
- Common network services
- Network logs and networking in Bash
Who Should Attend
Cyber Security Analyst
- Python programming experience
- Network or IT background
