Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Bobby Rogers, and welcome to the Information Security Manager: Information Security Incident Management course. I'm a cybersecurity analyst, and I work as a contractor securing information systems and data for the US government specializing in cyber risk management. Cybersecurity incidents happen every day, and unfortunately, many of them aren't detected or responded to until it is too late to contain the damage. Often this is because an organization does not have the people with the skills necessary to respond effectively. This leads to data breaches, as well as legal liability and loss of reputation for the organization. That's why we've produced this course, to help you gain the knowledge and learn the skills necessary to respond to cybersecurity incidents. In this course, you will learn about building an incident response team, responding to and containing incidents, incident forensics, and preventing future incidents. By the end of this course, you'll know how incident management works and how an incident response program functions. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with security concepts and terminology including basic knowledge of cyberattacks and network defense. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into more advanced topics with courses on computer forensics, security management, and advanced cyber incident management. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn incident management with the Information Security Manager: Information Security Incident Management course, from Pluralsight.
