In today’s world, organizations must be prepared to defend against threats in cyberspace. Decision makers must be familiar with the basic principles and best practices of cybersecurity to best protect their enterprises. In this course, experts from academia, the military, and industry share their knowledge to give participants the principles, the state of the practice, and strategies for the future.

Sessions will address information security, ethical and legal practices, and mitigating cyber vulnerabilities. Participants will also learn about the process of incident response and analysis. The content is targeted at ensuring the privacy, reliability, and integrity of information systems.

The majority of the course (about 75%) is geared toward participants at the decision-making level who need a broad overview, rather than those who are already deeply immersed in the technical aspects of cybersecurity (software development, digital forensics, etc.), although both groups will find the course valuable.

Cybersecurity is a very large subject, and therefore this course is only intended to cover the basics of the current leading and pressing cybersecurity topics. The result is that we can cover many different approaches. We cover the introduction of a topic and after the fundamentals, you can explore further on your own. The goal is for participants to understand the utility of each topic, not to become specialists in any one subject.

Course Objectives

The participants of this course will be able to:

  • Secure both clean and corrupted systems, protecting personal data, securing simple computer networks, and safe Internet usage
  • Understand key terms and concepts in cyber law, intellectual property and cyber-crimes, trademarks and domain theft
  • Determine computer technologies, digital evidence collection, and evidentiary reporting in forensic acquisition
  • Incorporate approaches to secure networks, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and intrusion prevention systems
  • Examine secure software construction practices
  • Understand principles of web security
  • Incorporate approaches for incident analysis and response
  • Incorporate approaches for risk management and best practices

Who should attend?

Seventy-five percent of the course is geared toward providing a basic framework for professionals making cybersecurity decisions in industry and government and individuals seeking to immerse themselves in the pressing issues of cybersecurity, giving them the information, they need to make the best decisions for the defence of their organizations. About a quarter of the course covers more technical areas of interest to people with more engineering-focused backgrounds, such as software developers or those working in digital forensics. Although those with a computing background would be better prepared for the more technical topics, an engineering or computing background is not required to benefit from any of the sessions.
