Additional Self-Learning Course "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 one new course on the self-learning platform tryhackme.

This basic course deals with vulnerability scanning using the Greenbone Cloud Services.
The course is suitable for anyone who wants to work with the Greenbone vulnerability management cloud solution for the first time. No previous knowledge is necessary!

In the course, we use the GCS TRIAL and a total of 10 tasks lead us from the account creation to a first scan to a report evaluation.

The following content is part of the course:

  • Introduction to vulnerability management
  • Setting up a free account
  • Getting to know the platform interface
  • Configuring and running a first scan – split into external and internal scans
  • Reading and understanding reports

The course code is: gcsforstarters
