CSA covers a module dedicated to rapid incident detection with Threat Intelligence. The module also imparts knowledge on integrating Threat Intelligence feeds into SIEM for enhanced threat detection.

5. Elaborate Understanding of SIEM Deployment

It covers 45 elaborated use cases which are widely used across all the SIEM deployments.

6. Promotes Hands-On Learning

CSA being a practically-driven program, offers hands-on experience on incident monitoring, detection, triaging, and analysis. It also covers containment, eradication, recovery, and reporting of the security incidents. To that end, there are 80 tools incorporated into the training.

7. Lab Environment Simulates a Realtime Environment

There are 22 labs in total in the CSA program, which demonstrates processes aligned to the SOC Workflow. These include, but are not restricted to, activites such as:

  • Modus operandi of different type of attacks at application, network and host level to understand thier IOCs
  • Working of local and centralized logging concepts which demonstrates how logs are pulled from the different devices on the network to facilitate incident monitoring, detection, and analysis
  • Examples of SIEM use case development for detecting application, network and host level incidents using various SIEM tools
  • Triaging of alerts to provide rapid incident detection and response
  • Prioritization and escalation of incidents by generating incident ticket
  • The containment of incidents
  • The eradication of incidents
  • The recovery from the incidents
  • Creating report of the incidents
