TrainACE’s Cyber Threat Counter Exploitation training course will use tested security techniques and real-world case studies to teach students how to expose, pursue, and prosecute the perpetrators of APTs (advanced persistent threats). Students will develop a sense of how to assess a network’s vulnerabilities, zero in on specific targets, and block intruders in an effective manner. Students will also learn how to set up digital traps, misdirect and divert attackers, configure honeypots, mitigate encrypted crimeware, and identify malicious software groups. This course will also go over legal and ethical issues, operational vetting, and security team management to fully round out the training.
