Cybersecurity Fundamentals for ISSOs
The Cybersecurity Fundamentals course provides students with an overview of core information assurance (IA) and cybersecurity concepts. The course will consist of lectures and hands-on labs for a multi-faceted learning experience. This course will provide a good initial foundation for participants wanting to work in a corporate or government security role and ultimately pursue an industry certification like Security+.
Students should have taken UMBC Training Centers’ Network Fundamentals for ISSOs course or have equivalent skills and experience.
Anyone involved in information security must have a solid understanding of the core concepts of information, network and application security, as well as the security processes, tools and technologies in use in a modern enterprise network (including the extended Cloud network). The course will feature hands-on exercises and hacking demos to reinforce key concepts.
