>> Welcome back to cyber
00:00
Linux Fundamentals for security practitioners.
00:00
I'm your instructor, Corey Holzer.
00:00
Now we enter Module 4.
00:00
Congratulations, you now have
00:00
the fundamental skills you will
00:00
need to work with Linux effectively.
00:00
In this module, our focus shifts to
00:00
what you can do next to expand your knowledge of Linux,
00:00
as well as your review of what this course entails.
00:00
You've completed the Linux fundamentals course,
00:00
but it was by no means exhaustive.
00:00
In this lesson, we'll look at how you can continue in
00:00
your journey in the realm of
00:00
Linux and expand your knowledge of it.
00:00
The objective of this lesson is to look at
00:00
potential next steps for expanding your Linux knowledge.
00:00
Let me start with what cyber has to offer you.
00:00
We recently launched a Linux hardening course,
00:00
taught by myself, where we walked through
00:00
the various methods of making a Linux host more secure.
00:00
We also offer a certification preparation course
00:00
for Comte Linux certification exam.
00:00
We have numerous live experiences
00:00
of varying difficulties,
00:00
where you can gain more experience with
00:00
the various tasks you may have to use Linux for.
00:00
There are a plethora of resources
00:00
available to you where you can learn more about Linux.
00:00
There are many sides you can
00:00
find official documentation,
00:00
or the manual pages for commands.
00:00
Stacking exchanges are great questions
00:00
and answers or forum,
00:00
where you can ask questions of
00:00
other Linux savvy individuals.
00:00
They will respond with
00:00
the potential solutions to the problem you're facing.
00:00
Already offers digital and searchable reference books
00:00
you can research.
00:00
Their books are also available in print if you need
00:00
the tactile feel of the printed page in your hand.
00:00
You can also find Linux user groups
00:00
in cities around the world.
00:00
Here you can meet with Linux hobbyists in your area.
00:00
Of course, with the COVID-19 pandemic,
00:00
the availability of this form of support may vary.
00:00
Keep in mind that Linux has been
00:00
around for almost 30 years.
00:00
Someone has probably dealt with
00:00
the same problem you're facing,
00:00
and asked the same questions that you are.
00:00
So there's a good chance you will
00:00
find the answer out there on the net.
00:00
There are many Linux-specific certifications
00:00
you may want to consider in the future.
00:00
Some like Linux plus or agnostic Linux certifications,
00:00
meaning the knowledge they test are not
00:00
specifically related to a single distribution.
00:00
Conversely, there are some,
00:00
like the Red Hat certifications
00:00
that focus on a single distribution.
00:00
Remember, while this course uses Ubuntu,
00:00
it will apply to all flavors of Linux.
00:00
One thing I want to point out,
00:00
the Linux Foundation offer
00:00
certifications on various aspects of Linux,
00:00
from Linux administration to
00:00
specific elements of Linux
00:00
like Kubernetes and other technologies.
00:00
In this lesson, we covered
00:00
the various resources and learning opportunities,
00:00
you should consider while
00:00
pursuing more knowledge in Linux.
00:00
Thanks, I'll see you in the next lesson.
