Overview

Information security is part of every IT professional's job. Hackers are constantly trying to compromise your networks, steal sensitive data, and overwhelm your systems. Planning, implementing, enforcing, or even removing security are tasks we all do to keep users and systems safe. Performing these tasks properly and in alignment with industry best practices is critical to virtually every technology role, from decision maker to developer to operator.

This scenario-based course focuses on computer security as an applied process across job roles and industries. The course also helps to prepare students for achieving the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. CISSP is widely regarded as the most valuable vendor-neutral credential a computer security professional can hold. It is frequently identified as a prerequisite for security jobs across all industries including security design, implementation, maintenance, policy development, and management of secured systems, process/procedures, policies, applications and networks.

This course is primarily for Information Technology Security Professionals who want advance their security certifications such as Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and related courses. This course also covers most of the knowledge required to prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam

Intended Audience

​This course is primarily designed for the IT professional whose role includes some information security tasks or responsibilities. Common job titles for students include CISO, Director, Manager, Supervisor, Analyst, Information Architect, Program Manager, Lead, Information Security Officer, Security Specialist, and Auditor.
