- [Jerod] Are we secure? How many times has someone in leadership asked you that question? How comfortable were you with the answer? If you want an answer you can trust, one that you can back up with real data, then you need to know how to perform a security assessment. You can learn how to prepare for, execute and deliver a security assessment using the same frameworks and tools used by security professionals all over the world. In my LinkedIn Learning course, I show you how to conduct five distinct types of security assessments, as well as how to use the security tools that you'll be expected to use in the field.
So join me, Jerod Brennan, in my course about the essentials of security testing.
