Identifying Security Fundamentals
In this module, Identifying Security Fundamentals, students will learn to identify information security concepts, identify basic security controls, identify basic authentication and authorization concepts, and identify basic cryptography concepts. Students will also learn to identify information security concepts, identify basic security controls, identify basic authentication and authorization concepts, and identify basic cryptography concepts.
In this module, Analyzing Risk, students will learn about analyzing organizational risks as well as analyzing the business impact of risks. This module will cover analyzing organizational risk and analyzing the business impact of risk. The process of identifying risks, analyzing them, developing a response strategy for them, and mitigating their future impact is all part of being a security professional.
Identifying Security Threats
In this module, Identifying Security Threats, students will learn to identify types of attackers, identify social engineering attacks, identify malware, identify software-based threats, identify network-based threats, identify wireless threats, and identify physical threats. This module also contains demos for these topics.
Conducting Security Assessments
In this module, Conducting Security Assessments, students will learn about identifying vulnerabilities, assessing vulnerabilities, and implementing penetration testing. Students will learn about software vulnerabilities such as zero-day, improper input handling, improper error handling, resource exhaustion, race conditions, and memory vulnerabilities.
Implementing Host and Software Security
