To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course covers advanced topics in network security and intrusion detection. In-depth coverage of perimeter protection and firewall designs. Advanced Intrusion Detection and IDS/IPS design and implementation. Students will be familiarized with network monitoring and security tools and use them to perform traffic and IDS signature analysis, and network forensics. Also covered will be reverse engineering and machine code analysis techniques. These will be used to analyze malicious code and malware.
Due to the current COVID situation, this course will run ONLINE for the Spring/Summer term. *Please note: courses in Spring/Summer will still have ‘time’ / ‘location’ indicated on the course pages (system can’t change these). Unless the courses are cancelled or indicated otherwise by the PA or instructors, most will plan to run ONLINE this term. This course is for students accepted into the Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity Programs. Students who have been accepted into the DF&C program where this course is a part of the matrix may register without any further approvals.
