Cyber Warfare/Electronic Warfare Convergence

Course Description

This course will help engineers, designers, and others gain foundational knowledge of the broad implications of cyber warfare and electronic warfare (EW) convergence. Topics will introduce traditional cyberattacks and electronic warfare and cover topics such as infrastructure and communication impacts, attack vectors, and vulnerability analysis. You'll have the benefit of practicing your new skills through demonstrations to later apply them at your organization.
