Two more Self-Learning Courses: "How to Automate Scans" and "GCS for Starters"

After we presented our first self-learning course “GSM for Starters” in August (see First Self-Learning Course "GSM for Starters"), we are happy to announce two more courses on the self-learning platform tryhackme.

Advanced Course: How to Automate Scans
This course deals with the advanced topic of automating scans using schedules and alerts.
The course is suitable for anyone who already completed the basic course “GSM for Starters”.

The following content is part of the course:

  • Introduction to vulnerability management
