Cyber Security Specialist

 Program Description:

The objective of this course is to provide students with comprehensive technical knowledge, hands-on experience, and the necessary tools to enter the cybersecurity field effectively.

This program consists of the following three cyber security courses:

  1. Security Support Specialist (Security+) (48 Hours)
  2. Cyber Defense Professional (CYSA+) (48 Hours)
  3. Ethical Hacking Specialist (CEH) (48 Hours)


Security Support Specialist (Security+) (48 Hours)

This course provides the skills necessary to apply and implement technical knowledge of security concepts in today’s security environment. Students will gain an in‐depth knowledge of systems security, access control, network infrastructure, assessments and audits, cryptography and organizational security across all vendor products. These skills have become increasingly important, as additional safeguards such as intrusion detection systems, physical access control and multi‐factor authentication become standard methods of protection. Students are given real world scenarios to reinforce the material covered and will learn how to apply the concepts to their daily operations.


Cyber Defense Professional (CYSA+) (48 Hours)

It focuses on the candidate’s ability to not only proactively capture, monitor, and respond to network traffic findings, but also emphasizes software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance, which affects the daily work of security analysts.

It covers the most up-to-date core security analyst skills and upcoming job skills used by threat intelligence analysts, application security analysts, compliance analysts, incident responders/handlers, and threat hunters, bringing new techniques for combating threats inside and outside of the Security Operations Center (SOC).


Ethical Hacking Specialist (CEH) (48 Hours)

The purpose of this course is to allow students and IT professionals to move into the cybersecurity field. To do that, students will be provided with hands-on technical skills to help you learn and retain ethical hacking skills. Each section provides you with videos and demonstrations that teach you how to perform necessary tasks. Text lessons help reinforce the concepts taught in the videos, and interactive hands-on labs let you practice the skills you've learned. Within each section, you'll find practice questions to test your knowledge.
