Log management company Humio has announced a new log management certification course. The course is divided into six one-hour sessions that will take place between March 4 and April 22. Topics covered will include log management planning and design, centralized log collection, security integration, threat management and forensics using log data, system observability, and cost reduction techniques.

Course instructors come from companies like Humio, IBM, Instana, Lunar, SOC Prime, and Vijilan Security. 

“Logging everything changes everything because high-fidelity data lets you understand real problems as they are unfolding,” said Kresten Krab Thorup, CTO and co-founder of Humio. “We designed this course to take attendees well beyond the ‘intro to logging’ concepts to help them understand the true benefits of modern log management principles when implemented correctly across the enterprise.”
