Enterprise Cybersecurity
Policies and practices for information assurance, incident response, disaster recovery, cost assessment, vulnerability assessment, vulnerability testing, and risk mitigation strategies.

Network & Computer Security
This course provides an in-depth understanding of the concepts of computer and network security. It covers basic cryptography, including symmetric and public key cryptosystems as well as key management and distribution and user authentication. It introduces digital signatures, hash functions, message authentication firewalls and intrusion detection, and operational issues. Students are also introduced to topics such as Physical Security, OS Security, Malware, Network Security, Web Security, Security Models and Distributed-Applications Security.

IT Security: Auditing
Describe and apply information security systems compliance requirements, laws, standards, and framework to create IT infrastructure security audit plans and reports for supporting business, systems, and enterprise continuity. Describe and apply information security systems compliance requirements for User Domain, Workstation and various Network Domains, Remote Access Domain, and Systems and Applications Domains. Enumerate and recommend the qualifications, ethics, and certification organizations for IT security auditors.

Information Assurance
Explain the differences of the various information security domains based on the information security common body of knowledge and to categorize and solidify future security goals. Apply information security principles to create information assurance policies, procedures, and standards for fulfilling investigated gaps. Evaluate an organization's rating for current required security compliance standards.

IT Security: Access Control and Authentication
Describe Access Control and Authentication Policies, Procedures, Standards, and Guidelines for Information Systems and Information Assurance. Apply access control and authentication security principles to assess access risk, physical security, social engineering and human behavioral considerations, and create a plan to mitigate for security solutions. Apply security principles with encryption and cryptography methodologies to implement access control systems.

IT Security: Attack and Defense
Apply security techniques and tools to identify and enumerate common characteristics, processes, and methods that could be used in attacks against systems. Evaluate systems for early detection and identification of possible issues, viruses, and attack mechanisms that could impact their security and functions. Apply security-breaching principles to show how an adversary could take advantage of systems' vulnerabilities to launch an attack against them.

IT Security: Risk Management
Identify and rank the various organizational assets that could be vulnerable to possible network security breaches. Compare and contrast intrusion detection tools, techniques and prevention capabilities on firewalls, routers, switches, sensors, scanners, servers, services, and systems. Evaluate tools, techniques, methods, and components for intrusion prevention network assessment and enumeration, application vulnerability assessment, and corresponding risk assessments, and security assessments of remote maintenance services. Develop an assessment plan to identify, attack, and penetrate intrusion prevention based network systems.

IT Automation
Students learn about IT Automation and the software used to accomplish tasks that can assist administrators in the IT field. The course is primarily based on Kaseya software and the students get a chance to not only learn the concepts of IT Automation and the suite of IT Automation tools Kaseya has to offer but students are also given the chance to become Kaseya Certified (Technical or Administrator).
