Who should attend

This course is designed for managers, engineers, and other technical professionals with growing responsibility for cybersecurity design, administration, management, or network administration. It also applies to professionals in government or data-rich industries, such as energy, finance, healthcare and defense, whose roles are highly impacted by the security of data, as well as professionals moving into cybersecurity roles.

About the course

As many business sectors become increasingly information centric and network reliant, cybersecurity is becoming a critical pillar of the enterprise. Cybersecurity: A Systems Approach explores information security vulnerabilities and how to approach cybersecurity resilience as a complex system. Examine effective frameworks for assessing and managing information security within an enterprise architecture, approaching challenges from a top-down systems engineering approach. Practice newly learned techniques through workshop exercises that explore topics such as identifying vulnerabilities, defining threats, assessing risk, and designing a security plan.
