This course is designed to help organizations build a robust security architecture using Azure Security Services, Azure Security, and Operations Management.

During this course, you will learn about security incident response strategies. You will investigate how to effectively prioritize the response to a security incident. You will build a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) and you will learn how to prepare a Security Incident Report. Plus you will explore threat modelling using the NIST Framework.

Additionally, you will be introduced to Azure Security Services, including: Azure Public Cloud Services; Azure Networking; Network Access Control; Secure Remote Access; Cross Premises Connectivity; and VNET Peering. You will also learn about Azure Security and Operations Management using Azure Security Center, Azure Backup, and Azure Log Analytics.

Once you have completed this course, you will have a good understanding of what comprises a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) and how to prioritize actions for a security incident response. You will know how to manage post-incident activity to prevent recurrence. Plus, you will be able to build security architecture using Azure.

This FutureSkills Prime course comprises two purposely designed modules that take you on a carefully defined learning journey.

It is a self-paced course, which means it is not run to a fixed schedule with regard to completing modules or submitting assignments. To give you an idea of how long the course takes to complete, it is anticipated that if you work 2 hours per week, you will complete the course in 3 weeks. However, as long as the course is completed by the end of your enrollment, you can work at your own pace. And don’t worry, you’re not alone! You will be encouraged to stay connected with your learning community and mentors through the course discussion space.

The materials for each module are accessible from the start of the course and will remain available for the duration of your enrollment. Methods of learning and assessment will include videos, reading material, and online exam questions.

As part of our mentoring service you will have access to valuable guidance and support throughout the course. We provide a dedicated discussion space where you can ask questions, chat with your peers, and resolve issues. Depending on the payment plan you have chosen, you may also have access to live classes and webinars, which are an excellent opportunity to discuss problems with your mentor and ask questions. Mentoring services will vary across packages.

Once you have successfully completed the course, you will earn your Certificate of Completion.

After completing this first course, you will be able to:

  • Effectively prioritize the response to a security incident.
  • Build a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT).
  • Develop an incident response action plan.
  • Carry out post-incident activity.
  • Create security architecture using Azure Security Services, Azure Security, and Operations Management.

This course has been carefully designed to enable learners to build skills and learn best practices for a security incident response. This includes learning how to form a well-defined Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). You will gain a good grasp of the CSIRT process and the duties and responsibilities of a CSIRT. You will also learn how to establish a standard operating procedure (SOP) for dealing with a security event. 

Once you’ve completed this course, you will be able to use the knowledge you’ve gained to strengthen your present cybersecurity environment. You will understand how to use Microsoft Azure security services to secure vital data in the Azure cloud. Plus, you will have mastered the terminology, tools, and techniques required to create a secure resilient cloud service. 

They are important to maintain the security of your information assets. With the help of information security devices, you may effectively address and manage the aftermath of a security breach. 

An organization's vulnerability to ever-growing assaults is often exacerbated by outdated security software and mismanaged security devices. In certain cases, information technology teams are unable to keep up with the rapidly changing nature of cyberattacks and their other obligations. Up to date information security protocols and devices will help to mitigate the risks involved with running outdated software and procedures. 

It is critical for businesses to have a specialized team/individual who handles their information security devices. Application security analysts are well-equipped to carry out this task effectively. Their primary responsibility is to evaluate enterprise security devices and apps in order to detect vulnerabilities. They are also in charge of keeping an eye on the organization's traffic and logs for signs of potential threats. 

With respect to key business applications, a security analyst must master the best practices in the domain of "Security Incident Response (SIR)." 

This FutureSkills Prime course is self-paced, which means that you can work at a pace that suits you. It does not follow a predetermined timetable, unlike scheduled live sessions. You are free to work at your own speed if you complete the modules and the course before the deadline.
