This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of cybersecurity. It includes understanding the concepts of threats, vulnerabilities, and risk as the definition of “security” for a system. The course examines types of global security policies, provides the definition and examples of contemporary technical, administrative, and physical security controls and establishes the foundation for global system engineering requirements. Common attacks and mitigations, and the shortcomings of common, contemporary cybersecurity models are analyzed.
The cybersecurity network testing will be conducted in the student’s Cybersecurity SandBox.
