Course Calendar

Security Operations Center (SOC) Best Practices

Remote via Zoom

The SOC is the first line of defense. As such, improving its capabilities will directly affect your organization’s ability to respond to threats and incidents. This course will teach students the essential skills they’ll need to excel as SOC analysts. Students will gain first-hand experience working with commonly used tools, processes and data flows. Plus, they’ll explore incident response techniques, threat modeling, and reporting procedures. Since turnover is a common challenge for SOCs, this course will teach techniques to avoid burnout. The workflow automation techniques taught in this course are designed to increase productivity while reducing stress.
This course can be used for continuing education credits for organizations including (ISC)2, EC Council, CompTIA, PMI, ISACA, and more. This course will also prime students to pursue their CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySa+) certification.
