Security is always a concern, and with major security holes like Shellshock and Heartbleed being announced regularly, it’s more critical than ever to secure the data you are liable for. This course will walk you through the many risks and threats that exist, show you how to use best practices and other open-source tools to mitigate or counteract those threats, and teach you what you need to know to detect and recover from those attacks that do happen.

Course Description

Linux Foundation instructor Dominic Duval talks about our Linux security training course.

This advanced, completely hands-on course adopts a highly technical approach to cover important security techniques and tools. By providing visibility both into attack vectors and possible security holes, this course provides you a complete guide on how to mitigate security risks in any Linux environment.

You’ll get direct experience with:

  • Assessing security risks in your enterprise Linux environment.
  • The best techniques and tools to increase security.
  • Server hardening
  • Deploying monitoring and attack detection tools.
  • Gaining visibility into possible vulnerabilities.
  • Developing your Linux security policy and response strategy.
  • Configuring your systems for compliance with HIPAA, DISA STIG, etc.
  • And more.
