  • Identifying and assessing security threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities (e.g., malware, application and network attacks, and vectors)
  • Recognizing the importance of architecture and design (e.g., security concepts in an enterprise environment, virtualization, and cloud computing concepts)
  • Implementing security solutions based on real-world scenarios (e.g., secure protocols, host or application solutions, secure network design, wireless and mobile solutions)
  • Applying cybersecurity solutions to the cloud and utilizing Threat Intelligence Testing
  • Implementing identity and account management controls, authenticating and authorizing solutions, and public key infrastructure
  • Choosing appropriate operations and incident responses (e.g., policies, processes, procedures, and data sources to support investigations)
  • Applying mitigation techniques and understanding key aspects of digital forensics
  • Governance, risk, and compliance (e.g., risk management, privacy and sensitive data concepts)

Methods of instruction: There are 8 different possible exercises that can be used in a module. Some examples include: threats and controls, case studies, risk analysis practice, and reading review. Technical labs will require basic skills in operating systems and virtualization. As soon as students become too comfortable, the instructor will switch methods.
