Protect your network from cyber attacks. Malcolm Shore shows how to use the latest tools to discourage and combat hackers, phishers, and snoops attempting to infiltrate your Windows and Linux systems. Learn what forms cyber attacks can take, and the two most common types of protection you can build into your system: antivirus protection and firewalls. Then learn how to scan your network for suspicious files, detect intruders with Netcat, and identify vulnerabilities at the host level with Nessus scans. Malcolm also shows how to avoid common security mistakes and monitor packet-level activity on your network.
Hi, my name is Malcolm Shore, and welcome to Practical Cyber Security. This course is about the common tools used to identify vulnerabilities in networks and systems which might be exploited in a cyber attack. I'll start by taking a look at the two most common security tools, Antivirus, and Firewalls. Then I'll look at how hackers profile a network to check where systems are connected, what services are open, and what software is running.
I'll use two popular tools, Nmap and Netcat. I'll then demonstrate the Nessus and Vega scanners to check open services for vulnerabilities. Finally, I'll use Wireshark Packet Capture Tool, to monitor and analyze the raw packets being sent across the network. When you finish this course, you'll have a great understanding of how to profile and protect your network, how to check whether it could be compromised, and how to monitor the activity on it. So let's get started with Practical Cybersecurity.
