About the Course

Cybersecurity is broken up into two years, Cybersecurity 1 and Cybersecurity 2. Cybersecurity 2 picks up where Cybersecurity 1 left off. In this course, students will dive deeper into the cybersecurity world. They will assess various types of attacks, from coding and application attacks. Students will examine numerous risk management tools and how to use them to secure systems. The course also has a strong focus on cryptography and PKI, the building blocks for creating confidentiality. Finally, students will examine various management policies that companies can implement to create a secure environment. At the end, students will create some major artifacts and demonstrate cyber defense in a hands on environment.
