As many business sectors become increasingly information-centric and network-reliant, cyber security becomes a critical pillar of the enterprise. This course explores information security vulnerabilities and how to approach cyber security resilience as a complex system. Effective frameworks for assessing and managing information security within an enterprise architecture, including systems engineering, are examined. A hands-on project will allow you to practice newly learned techniques for defining threats, designing a security plan and quickly and effectively reacting to security incidents.
Managers, engineers and other technical professionals with growing responsibility for cyber security design/administration/management or network administration, professionals in government or data-rich industries such as energy, finance, healthcare and defense whose roles are highly impacted by the security of data, professionals moving into cyber security roles
