Cybersecurity – IDS / IPS Deployment & OPS

The security of information systems and network infrastructures is becoming more and more complicated nowadays. The purpose of the training is to highlight the benefits of the deploying a IDS / IPS sensor within your IT infrastructure and to explore the functionalities offered by IDS / IPS systems to facilitate the management of security related events The training methodology puts practice at the heart of learning to improve the acquisition of experience and knowledge.


Several hands-on exercises are performed through CYBELS Cyber Range platform, virtualizing information systems and reflecting realistic network architectures.
Each student has a pentester computer and their own IT System at their disposal on CYBELS Cyber Range.
He is able to access numerous equipment (PCs, routers, probes, firewalls, servers, proxies …).
The course also embeds feedback from Thales experience on Cybersecurity tools, devices, projects and solutions


After the course, the students know :

  • Deploy and administrate a IDS / IPS
  • Manage the correlation
  • Write signature
