These networks offer similar possibilities for attackers and defenders, as they would have when testing or protecting real corporate infrastructure. During the training, attendees will first take on the roles of (un)ethical hackers. In this phase of the course, trainees will learnget to know basics of security testing and will have a chance to try attacking networks, web applications and even end users (scripts which simulate user actions and reactions are part of the Polygon subsystem). In second part of the course, trainees will be tasked with the responsibilities of security specialits who defend corporate networks. They will learn to detect malicious network traffic with the help of their own IPS signatures, detect malware on endpoints or analyze suspicious e-mails and their attachments.
