Who should attend
This course is designed for engineers, technicians, managers, and information security professionals who work with test and evaluation from a DoD perspective.
About the course
Learn how to apply test and evaluation (T&E) to the cyber domain. The Fundamentals of Cyber Systems Test and Evaluation course approaches T&E from the perspective of Department of Defense (DoD) practitioners, covering the gamut of the roles, responsibilities, processes, procedures, and tools needed to effectively work in this space. Extensive workshops help attendees understand cybersecurity vulnerabilities, design cyber-related test plans, select appropriate measurements, and report results.
