The Cybersecurity Operations course provides the fundamental knowledge and skills that are required for a Security Analyst to work in an enterprise's Security Operations Centre (SOC). The skills developed are those that are needed to monitor and detect as well as investigate, analyze and report on security events. The Cybersecurity Operations course will allow students develop knowledge and use tools to protect enterprise network systems, as well as detect existing cybersecurity risks, threats and vulnerabilities in those enterprise systems. Although there are no requirements for Cybersecurity Operations, it is strongly recommended that students have a background in Networking, Linux and Windows prior to taking the course.
