This course teaches you how to recognize the various stages of attacks and intrusions: scanning, exploits, elevation of privilege, trojans and backdoors. Every attack is different. The source of an attack might be an automated tool, a script kiddy, or a security expert working for a foreign government, and the source strongly effects the style and timing of the attack.
