Course Name Threats and Attacks
Category Information Technology & Computers
Description This Threats and Attacks course uses a hands-on approach to examine how the expansion of network technologies has led to advanced techniques and mechanisms used by crackers.

Addressed will be the types of attacks commonly favoured and how to assess the risks of emerging threats. Also discussed will be non-technical attacks, including social engineering techniques and litigation threats.

Topics, learned by hearing lectures from an experienced instructor and completing hands-on assignments, include the benefits of penetration testing, vendor and government opposition to public awareness, scanning networks to find targets, social engineering, circuit level access control, identifying targets via remote fingerprinting and using online vulnerability databases to assess risks.

Once you complete Threats and Attacks, you will be confident in:

• Understanding and using network scanning tools;
• Identifying and assessing vulnerabilities in network services;
• Discussing the risks of limiting public disclosure of security issues;
• Using packet filtering to limit network scans;
• Understanding the risks of vendor influence over government and corporate policies.
