The SOC Experience

As cyber attacks continue to rise, companies are seeking to hire well-trained and knowledgeable cybersecurity professionals with hands-on experience to detect the attack and defend the mission. Our company’s course, “The SOC Experience” provides students with the hands-on experience necessary to perform day-to-day operations in a Security Operations Center (SOC) as a Cyber Security Analyst at the Tier 1 level. This engaging course will allow students to log into a simulated network environment and learn hands-on techniques that will enable them to thrive as SOC analysts. In this simulated network environment, students will have the opportunity to work in Splunk, Linux Command Line, Windows Command Line, and more. This course features personalized feedback from instructors as well as assignments that help them to develop their newly gained cybersecurity skills. At the completion of the hands-on portion, students will then engage in a mock interview. Skills are in accordance with the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NIST 800-181 Rv. 1).
