Blue Team Boot Camp: Defending Against Hackers
What you'll learn
- Students will learn fundamental cyber-security principles that will allow them to defend their network against hackers of all skill sets.
- Students will obtains hands-on knowledge that is applicable to real-world environments.
- Experience with Microsoft Windows and/or Linux operating systems
- Experience with computer networking is also preferred, but not required.
Are you interested in becoming a cybersecurity professional? Unfortunately, the market is saturated with courses and text that pertain to becoming a penetration tester, red teamer, and ethical hacker. That concept motivated me to create a comprehensive course that is geared towards the exact opposite. Defensive cybersecurity is just as in-demand as the offensive counterpart and provides the same type of rewarding career. Unlike the red team, defensive cybersecurity has many more sub-fields that allow you to explore different aspects of this career path. In this comprehensive condensed course, you will learn all of the information security principles alongside new technologies that professionals are using to stop hackers from breaching their network.
Who this course is for:
- People interested in starting a career in cybersecurity
- People who desire to learn about effective defense tactics that can mitigate average threat actors and hackers
- People who are passionate about cybersecurity, defensive security, and information security.
I’ve been using computers since the early age of six. When I was 13, I began to study certain computing topics more in-depth. I started learning the concept of packet-switched networks while writing scripts in a Pascal-based language via an IDE known as SCAR Divi.
I then began to focus on common web-based vulnerabilities. From there I transitioned into learning general cyber security topics and started to become proficient in different programming languages, network security, and endpoint hardening. Over the years I continued to assimilate these topics, while I acquired more knowledge in generalized networking, penetration testing, and risk analysis alongside my primary focus of defensive security.
To this day, I continue to further my education in every possible way including but not limited to attending conferences, listening to podcasts, and actively participating in the information security community. I also participate in cyber security clubs and regularly engage in non-competitive CTF challenges such as Hack The Box. My passion for this field only continues to grow stronger.
