Certified Cyber Security Specialist



This course will provide participants with in-depth knowledge and practical skills to plan, deliver and monitor IT/cybersecurity to internal and external clients encompassing a complete, conjoined set of disciplines in the areas of IT policies, Security-Operational-Run-Book, security/penetration testing, ethical hacking, and black hat hacking.

It will also cover WiFi security, Website security, human factors, cyber forensics, cybersecurity team management, Secure Operations Center (SOC), and Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) infrastructures.

As part of the course, participants will conduct a risk assessment of two different deployments based on the ISO27001 to identify any direct, or indirect threats, security exposures, or potentials for vulnerabilities. Participants will also respond to an example of a security incident and identify the best practices which could be applied to secure their own organization and associated assets.  All participants will be given copies of Run Books to deal with cyber extortions, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS/DoS), and forensic investigations.

Course Objectives:

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

  • Use Neuro-Linguistic Programing (NLP) to deliver messages that will change the way employees work and think about security
  • Examine the area of wireless security protocols, their security attributes, and their potential insecurities within the organization, and in public spaces
  • Illustrate how penetration testing and ethical hacking enhance organizational security
  • Evaluate and apply two of the most important aspects in the modern day of cyber-adversity: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and cyber threat intelligence
  • Apply information security standards to their organization and its critical assets
  • Identify the threats presented by viruses, malware, active code, and Active Persistent Threats (APT) and consider the different mitigating options
  • Formulate and manage effective cybersecurity teams, and apply the Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) framework, tools, and capabilities to deliver cost-effective and robust solutions to protect the organization
