NATO CCD COE holds technical courses each year to bring together and train computer and network security specialists from its sponsoring nations and partners. The list of courses is now public and registration for the Botnet Infiltration Training and also IT Systems Attack and Defence is now open.
IT Systems Attack and Defence course will take place from 3rd to 7th of October this year and it will be instructed by Mr Kaur Kasak and CPT Roman Palík from NATO CCD COE. This is a practical 5 day introductory course considering the methods and tools used by the attackers to gain access to IT systems and the potential countermeasures to cope with those attacks. The course will cover different topics following the typical attack phases: reconnaissance, scanning, gaining access and privilege escalation, maintaining access, hiding tracks.
The course has been designed for novice network and system administrators, and security specialists. In general the expected audience should consist of persons who have good background in information technology gained whether from studies in university or by practical experiences or both. On the other hand we expect these individuals do not have knowledge and good practical know-how about security problems of computer networks and applications. Professional security practitioners or penetration testers with years of experience are not the target audience this course.
