Training and Education

Training and education are vital to the effectiveness of any cyber response capability. How much or how little is required is dependent on the scope, the assessment of the threats and the risk tolerance of your organization.

Cyber Educational Infrastructure & Facility Development

Cyber-attacks and malware are a rapidly evolving threat to security. Customers who have a national focus will want to develop their own personnel and systems to respond to today’s attacks and plan how to handle those that will undoubtedly, come tomorrow. Jump-start courses are very beneficial in order to become quickly involved. Customer personnel who already have some domain skills in networks, telecommunications and operating systems can become very effective quickly. However, a longer term strategy will be required to nurture and grow the team.Developing a national cyber defence capability will not only enable the defence of national infrastructure but have knock-on benefits to the country, including more domestic educational and professional opportunities, increased business security confidence in the region and a safer environment for all. Pinecone Cyber Defence can work in conjunction with national stakeholders and renowned cyber-security university and educational institutes to develop educational infrastructure and facilities to grow your domestic capability.

Customized Training

We offer a range of customized trainings covering some of the most important cyber defence knowledge areas and techniques, including:

  • Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Management Training

Training in how to use and maintain systems for penetration testing and vulnerability management – general aspects and product focussed aspects.

Instant Response Team Training

When an attack happens, time is the most critical factor. Reacting quickly and decisively to an attack will limit the immediate and subsequent damage and losses. It is thus essential to have an instant response team that is able to react immediately and expertly, to contain and avert the attack.

  • "Red Team" Training and Counter-Measures Training

Building up a competent Counter-offensive team (your own Red-team) may be an eventual outcome of your Security Policy and its implementation. This is the flip-side of the cyber defence coin where you may want to be able to counter-attack in order to defend. Counter-measures are aimed at organizations who are not content with just securing and defending their data and infrastructure, but who want to make the next step and fight back. As many governments, but also shady organizations and individuals, prepare for cyber warfare, being able to fight back and engage an attacker can alter the threat and send a strong signal to leave your organization alone. A successful counter measure will discourage any repeat attempts, and is thus a useful prevention technique.

  • Software Development Training

We offer jump-start and ongoing software development training in Deep Packet Inspection, Malware farming and reactive tools.
