Cybersecurity is of critical importance given society’s absolute reliance on technology. Demand for cybersecurity and digital investigation skills across organizations and sectors high.
This microcredential consists of three 2-day workshops that, when taken together, provide fundamental cybersecurity training to IT professionals. Students will learn how cyber crimes can affect an organization, how to defend a network, and how to respond to a cyber attack. They will also gain insight into the work of a cybersecurity professional, should they decide to pursue further education to work in the field.
The first workshop, XFSC 7011, teaches the fundamental skills needed to design and maintain secure network environments. Topic include network security, intrusion detection.
The second workshop, XFSC 7021, introduces the concept of penetration testing and the usage of Kali Linux to provide security functions. Students will gain hands on experience with ethical hacking to evaluate the security of a network system.
The third workshop, XFSC 7031, provides an overview of the planning and implementation of contingencies in case of incidents and disaster.
Students will receive a badge for each course completed, and will receive the microcredential upon successful completion of all three workshops.
