What

On this 4-day GIAC Intrusion Analyst Certification course, you'll develop the competence to configure and monitor detection systems as well as understand, interpret and analyse network traffic and log files.

This course is aimed at professionals responsible for network and host monitoring, traffic analysis and intrusion detection. Some of the skills you'll learn include:
