Course details

Set a rock-solid foundation for your network, users, and data by learning about the basics of cybersecurity. Join security expert Malcolm Shore as he describes how to assess and mitigate risks using various cybersecurity frameworks and control standards, such as NIST and COBIT.

Malcolm details pertinent cyber threats and how they operate, including how cyber criminals hide their attacks, how advanced persistent threats work, and even how to determine what's real and what's merely cyber fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD). He also covers the way in which cyber risk is managed and the lifecycle of cybersecurity—from managing defense through to preparing for and responding to an incident. And since cybersecurity has taken on an increasingly visible global dimension, Malcolm concludes the course with a discussion of international cyber norms and protocols.
