What you will learn

This learning path begins with an overview of intrusion detection and then dives into the data required to build various detection use cases and various open-source tools and frameworks for building and tuning your detections. Throughout the path, we will review the various aspects and frameworks that comprise intrusion detection techniques (network- and host-based) and explore real world use-cases and examples of detection methodology. At the end of this path, you will have the necessary skills to craft meaningful detections that can aid in identifying malicious activity within your organization’s environment.
