Course description

The analysis you perform on log data is important, but it tends to remain static. Most of the intelligence you'll be gathering and analyzing from logs will be actionable only after the event is either underway or already finished. So, to complement this static analysis, you need something a bit more dynamic. That's why, in this lesson, you'll take a more active approach to analyzing your organizational assets.
