SaluteMyjob, in partnership with IBM and Corsham Institute runs a free Cyber Security Training Course aimed at veterans and reservists, looking to work in a support and operations environment. 

Students will learn to navigate the IBM QRadar user interface and how to investigate offences. You will search and analyse the information from which QRadar concluded as suspicious activity and conduct hands-on exercises to reinforce the skills learned. The course covers system configuration, data source configuration, and remote networks and services configuration.

Module 1: Foundation

The first two days will introduce you to the IBM QRadar product. You will learn to log events and network flow data from thousands of devices, endpoints and applications distributed throughout a network. It normalises and correlates raw data to identify security offences, and uses an advanced Sense Analytics engine to baseline normal behaviour, detect anomalies, uncover advanced threats and remove false positives.

The IBM QRadar Foundation:

  • Provides real-time visibility to the entire IT infrastructure for threat detection and prioritisation.
  • Reduces and prioritises alerts to focus security analyst investigations on an actionable list of suspected, high probability incidents.
  • Enables more effective threat management while producing detailed data access and user activity reports.
  • Offers multi-tenancy and a master console to help managed service providers provide security intelligence solutions in a cost-effective manner.

Module 2: Administration

The second 2 days builds on the foundation course, covering system configuration, data source configuration, and remote networks and services configuration. This will be followed by one day of practical ‘Cyberkombat’ training.
