Hi all! first time posting. I have used the ELK stack for security purposes "Security Onion" & "HELK" distros. I was looking into deepening my threat hunting & security abilities by training for the Kibana Data Analyst course and taking some of the Security Analytics courses.
I see prerequisites for the Kibana Data Analyst such as the Elasticsearch Engineer 1 materials. The Security Analytics courses pre-req's are Kibana Data Analyst and Elasticsearch Engineer.
Is it absolutely necessary to get that deep into elasticsearch engineering materials in order to complete the Kibana Data Analyst or the Security Analytics courses?
I am just interested in the Kibana Data Analyst and the Security courses, in order to deepen my skill set in analyzing data. I don't really care about building ELK infrastructures as I am more on the data analysis & hunting spectrum.
