When you consider just a few of the consequences of a security breach - your proprietary information completely accessible, hefty fines for security lapses, news headlines about your company's security breach, it becomes obvious: An in-depth and thorough understanding of cyber security fundamentals and best practices is absolutely necessary.
In this cybersecurity course, you will gain a global perspective of the challenges of designing a secure system, touching on all the cyber roles needed to provide a cohesive security solution. Through lecture, labs, and breakout discussion groups, you will learn about current threat trends across the Internet and their impact on organizational security. You will review standard cybersecurity terminology and compliance requirements, examine sample exploits, and gain hands-on experience mitigating controls. In a contained lab environment, you will work with live viruses, including botnets, worms, and Trojans.
In addition to technical cybersecurity components, you will learn and explore the non-technical aspects of cybersecurity necessary to mitigate risk and lessen exposure, including risk management, threat determination, disaster recovery, security policy management, and business continuity planning. This course provides an excellent foundation for those proceeding to CISSP, CEH, CISA, or CISM training
