Learn Cybersecurity

Learning cybersecurity is the process of acquiring knowledge and skills to protect computer systems, networks, and digital assets from various threats and vulnerabilities. In today’s interconnected world, where data and information play a crucial role in business, government, and personal life, cybersecurity has become essential to safeguard sensitive information and maintain the integrity and availability of digital resources. Through this journey, you will be exposed to various concepts of cybersecurity including Security Operation Center (SOC). SOC analyst plays a pivotal role in safeguarding organisation’s digital assets and sensitive information.

Role to Offensive Security

Offensive security, often referred to as ethical hacking or penetration testing, is a cybersecurity discipline that focuses on actively probing and testing computer systems, networks, and applications with the intent of identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses. The primary objective of offensive security is to find and address security flaws before malicious hackers can exploit them, thereby strengthening an organization’s overall security posture. This path provides hands-on experience with basic offensive security techniques, tools, and procedures in a dedicated lab environment.
