The World Wide Web and the Internet are fantastic places to converse, conduct business, do research, or simply relax and play a few games. But unfortunately, it's also a place where some individuals would like to create havoc by committing fraud, identity theft, robbery, or to commit more serious crimes such as terrorism. This course looks at the world of Cyber security by examining the types of attacks these ner-do-wells use breach organisational defences and compromise systems.

The course then takes a high-level look at how organisations can protect against such attacks by describing how to build, operate and maintain a comprehensive set of security controls.

This course will provide you with an introduction to cyber security, hackers, hacking techniques and terminology.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for IT professionals looking to understand more about online security, but is also a good introductory course for those from a non-IT background who need to understand more about the protection of corporate systems and data.

There are no pre-requisites to attending this course, although attendance of the 'Fundamentals of Networking and the Internet' and the 'Understanding the WWW' courses would give an advantage.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the threats faced by organisations and individuals by hackers
  • Define the different classifications of Malware
  • Describe what DoS and DDos attacks are
  • Describe the stages of a hacking attack, including footprinting, social engineering, port scanning, network sniffing, and more.
  • Describe the basics of Information Security and how to build an Information Security Management System (ISMS)
  • Describe how to deploy Information Security controls within a network to defend against attack

The course is split into two key sections; one covering the threats associated with operating in cyber space, and one covering the basics of information security and the controls a company can implement to boost their security levels.

Module 1 - Understanding the threats

This module concentrates on understanding the threats we face by defining what hackers are, their motivations, and the tools they use. This section takes a look at the processes involved in a hacking attack. Delegates will learn about footprinting, port scanning, network sniffing, phishing, social engineering, dumpster diving and physical attacks.

Module 2 - The basics of Information Security

This module is dedicated to understanding the basics of Information Security and looks at how an organisation might approach the task of securing their networks against attacks. In this section, delegates will learn about the CIA triad, the creation of an ISMS, risk management, the implementation of security controls, penetration testing and incident management.

Further training

After attending this course, delegates would be well placed to attend the more in-depth 5-day 'IT Security Fundamentals' course.
