This three-day course provides an overview of cyber security threats along with the fundamentals of a strong cyber security program. It is designed for both non-technical and technical learners who want to understand how threat actors see their targets, and it shares methods to help mitigate risks.
Learners will be introduced to foundational elements of cyber security programs, including security governance to establish a security framework, and ways to align the security program with business objectives. Security risk management, measurement and communications will also be covered. Security architecture topics will address common security practices and tools used to monitor and protect mature organizations. Cyber defense topics such as building an incident response plan will also be discussed, alongside examples of incident response methodologies.
