Information Sharing and Analysis Center

India's leading non-profit foundation advancing national cyber security and professional ethics at workplace


Datacenter Security Professional (ICDS)

The program is intended to provide a first hand experience in understanding a hack attack, malware creation, spreading and anti malware evasion. It will also provide an insight as to how a data center could take steps to recognize and react to a cyber attack through malwares and protect its clients from phishing, social engineering, DDoS and other cyber attacks.
The approach of this workshop would be in the manner of Offensive Security, so as to understand better the way to deal with a hack/malware attack. This approach would make sure that the right defense mechanisms are thought and applied for.
At the end a thoughtful insight is given into the needs of SOC and practices to improve the outcome of SOC setup.
