🔒I have completed Security Blue Team's "Introduction to Vulnerability Management" course! 💻🎓(5/6)This course covered a range of essential tools, among those, Nessus, a powerful vulnerability scanning tool, impressed me with its extensive database and robust report creation capabilities. The course also included other valuable tools such as Nmap for network scanning, WPScan for WordPress vulnerability detection, Metasploitable 2 for simulating vulnerable systems, and OpenVAS for comprehensive vulnerability assessment. The capstone project involved conducting a vulnerability scan using Nessus, analyzing the results to determine critical issues, and suggesting appropriate remediation steps in a comprehensive vulnerability report. The knowledge gained from the course equips me to proactively identify and manage vulnerabilities within complex security landscapes.#SecurityBlueTeam #VulnerabilityManagement #Nessus #Nmap #WPScan #Metasploitable2 #OpenVAS #Cybersecurity #learningandgrowing
