Acronis Cloud Tech Associate Advanced Security with EDR

In English

 Unlock the full potential of your team with Acronis Academy's premium sales and technical training, complete with certifications, valued at $999 per company annually.

Welcome to Acronis #CyberFit Cloud Tech Associate Advanced Security with EDR! This comprehensive course is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of endpoint protection and detection techniques. When you complete the course, you’ll be empowered to safeguard your organization's assets from file-based malware attacks and respond swiftly to security incidents.

Course Overview

This course will explore the deployment of an endpoint protection platform (EPP) to proactively prevent file-based malware attacks and detect and mitigate malicious activity. We will also delve into advanced detection techniques, including signature-based detection and behavioral analysis, to ensure comprehensive threat identification and mitigation.

An emphasis will be placed on critical features of cloud-managed EPP solutions, including continuous monitoring, remote remediation, and data collection. You’ll also learn about cloud data-assisted solutions, which eliminate the need for local databases and allow endpoint agents to check a cloud resource for up-to-date threat verdicts.

Additionally, the course will explore how the the convergence of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and EPP tools enables faster detection and optimal automated response. You will learn how to detect security incidents, contain incidents at the endpoint, investigate events and provide remediation guidance.

Finally, we will explore Managed Detection and Response (MDR), an outsourced threat hunting and response service that reduces the burden on internal IT and enhances a business’s security posture. This course also provides a comprehensive overview of key cybersecurity terms and concepts, including cyber risk, cyberthreats, cyberattacks, compromises, breaches, living-off-the-land attacks, IOCs, events, incidents, alerts, the MITRE ATT&CK framework and the NIST framework.
