I'm your Instructor, Rahm Warner.
Please visit Cyberia Diet For more information on the security plus certification and many others,
this is the introductory video for domain one on threats, attacks and vulnerabilities.
This domain is worth 21% on the security plus exam.
The first domain deals with basic need of every information security professional, being able to recognize and understand the different sources of threats, types of attacks and vulnerabilities that maybe seeing on systems. And that may be exploited.
For instance, given a scenario which will here quite often throughout security Plus,
given a scenario, candidates must be ableto to analyze indicators of compromise
IOC and determine the types of malware.
Is it a virus is a Trojan? Is it a were? Is it ransomware ready to encrypt company data and asked for Bitcoin?

tactics, active reconnaissance, passive reconnaissance, escalation of privilege and so forth associated with pen testing. Other concepts in this domain, including explaining vulnerability scanning types of vulnerabilities, such as race conditions improper and put an error handling
untrained users. Memory, buffer overflows, architecture, design weaknesses,

There are six sections in domain one, but you see listed on your screen.
We'll have multiple videos to discuss each of these sections.
