Network Security Threatscape, Session 1 -  Introduction

In this first session, we'll learn some of the terminology for discussing "threatscape": vulnerability, exploit, threat and risk, and more. We'll also cover common attacks seen in our networks today, such as "Denial of Service (DoS)" and "Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)" attacks. And, we'll review some common spoofing attacks, like IP spoofing and MAC address spoofing. This session is a great place to start toward understanding the basics of network security and sets you up for Session 2.

Building on Session 1, the second session will cover additional types including: reflection and amplification attacks, social media, engineering, phishing and password attacks. By the end of Session 1 and Session 2, you'll have a good sense of several different types of attacks that you'll need to protect against in a network security career.


Network Security Threatscape, Session 3 - Continuation of Attack Types and Tools
November 30th at 9:00am PT

In Session 3, we'll continue adding to our understanding of other types of attacks, like malware.

And finally, we'll conclude the series by looking at some hacking tools that can be used for penetration testing for understanding network vulnerabilities.
