Introduction to Security, Access Control, and Software Development Security
In this module we cover some of the fundamentals of security that will assist you throughout the course. We will then introduce you to two domains of cyber security: access control and software development security. Focus will be on areas such as confidentiality, integrity, and availability, as well secure software development techniques.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning and Cryptography
In this module we are going to delve a little deeper into cyber security by covering business continuity and disaster recovery planning and cryptography. Learners will be exposed to what a disruptive event is and how the federal government through agencies such as FEMA handles disasters. We will also covers encryption and decryption and the various techniques used.
Information Security Governance and Risk Management & Legal, Regulations, Investigations, and Compliance
In this module we are going to cover some of the non-technical topics associated to cyber security: Information security governance and risk management and legal, regulations, investigations, and compliance. It is important to realize, that non-technical does not mean easy, or not important. In fact, I would like to argue that they are more important that the technical side of cyber security.
Operations Security & Physical and Environmental Security
In this module we are going to cover what amount to some of the more intuitive parts of cybersecurity: operations security and physical and environmental security. Learners will understand operations security from a competitor/enemy/hacker’s viewpoint and then develop and apply countermeasures accordingly. Learners will also be exposed to electric power issues such as brownouts, fire detection and suppression, and HVAC.
Security Architecture and Design & Telecommunications and Network Security
In this module we are going to cover some of the most technical and comprehensive topics that cyber security has to offer as we look at Security Architecture and Design and Telecommunications and Network Security. Learners will be exposed to security models such as Bell LaPadula, Clark-Wilson, Mandatory Access Control (MAC), Discretionary Access Control (DAC), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and Access Matrix. We will also describe the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model and its seven layers.
