Enterprise Security Fundamentals

Microsoft via edX

Overview

According to the Wall Street Journal, "All IT Jobs Are Cybersecurity Jobs Now."

In this course, we examine the concept of Red team - Blue team security professionals. You will practice Red team versus Blue team exercises, where one group of security pros--the red team--attacks some part or parts of a company's security infrastructure, and an opposing group--the blue team--defends against the attack. Both teams work to strengthen a company's defenses.

You'll learn how both the red and blue teams help the business attain a higher level of security, something the securityindustry is now calling the Purple team.

Note: These courses will retire in June. Please enroll only if you are able to finish your coursework in time.
