About the Course

Cyber-attacks, breaches, and incidents continue to grow. The sophistication and complexity of these attacks continue to evolve. More than ever organizations need to plan, prepare, and defend against a potential cyber incident. Security Operation Centers (SOCs) act as an organization's front-line defense against cyber incidents. SOC analyst accomplishes this by monitoring and responding to network and host anomalies, performing an in-depth analysis of suspicious events, and when necessary, aiding in forensic investigations. This course is designed to be a primer for anyone planning on taking the EC-Council CSA course. We will discuss the structure, organization, and general daily activities of SOC analysts. We will also look at several defensive tools including SEIMs, IDS, and IPS. We will talk about event monitoring and vulnerability management. Finally, we will talk about what to expect when an incident happens....

Perfect explanations. The only problem with the course was outdated and incomplete explanation on how to install SecurityOnion.

This was not a well-done course. The videos were okay, for the most part, but the class is mostly just theory. There is no hands-on at all. It starts off by wanting students to install Security Onion, but it's never used in the entire course, so it's pointless to waste time and energy installing it, unless the person plans on learning more about it after the course on their own time. What really brings the course down for me, though, is how poorly done the quizzes are. They have numerous writing issues, such as misspelled words, bad grammar, and bad writing mechanics. I can tell that they were written by someone whose first language isn't English, and no one bothered to proofread them to make sure that they were written correctly. In addition, there were at least two questions where the correct answers weren't accepted. Maybe this course is better on the EC-Council's website, but here on Coursera, it's virtually useless.
