Introduction to Cyber Security

Introduction to Cyber Security | 8 weeks Program

Take your first step toward a career in cybersecurity and learn the skills required to become a security professional with the Introduction to Cybersecurity Nanodegree program. In this program, you will learn how to evaluate, maintain, and monitor the security of computer systems. You’ll also learn how to assess threats, respond to incidents, and implement security controls to reduce risk and meet security compliance goals.

You will learn and understand how to...

Cybersecurity Foundations

This foundations course explains security fundamentals including core principles, critical security controls, and cybersecurity best practices. Students will also evaluate specific security techniques used to administer a system that meets industry standards and core controls, assess high-level risks, vulnerabilities, and attack vectors of a sample system, and explain ways to establish and maintain the security of different types of computer systems.

Defending and Securing Systems

Gain exposure to a diverse group of technologies that will provide or enhance the skills needed to enter the cybersecurity field. You will apply best practices of Defense in Depth to secure computer systems, use outputs from security incidents to analyze and improve future network security, and search internal systems to determine network vulnerabilities. You'll also learn how to recommend mitigations to address common application vulnerabilities and ensure fundamental encryption techniques for securing data at rest and in transit.

Threats, Vulnerabilities, and Incident Response

During this course, you will learn how to identify security threats and gaps, fix issues, and respond to inevitable attacks. You'll be able to explain the relationship between threats, threat actors, vulnerabilities, and exploits, leverage the MITRE ATT&CK framework to understand attack methods, and distinguish events from incidents and recognize indicators of compromise.

Governance, Risk & Compliance

Cybersecurity Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) has rapidly become a critical part of an effective cybersecurity strategy. In this course, students will learn about the functions of Governance, Risk, and Compliance and how each function operates alongside operational controls to strengthen an organization’s security. Students will also learn how to assess control effectiveness, measure security risk, and ensure that organizations are meeting security compliance objectives.

This training is designed to help you understand the high demand field of Cybersecurity by building foundational skills in how to evaluate, maintain, monitor, and mitigate security issues related to computer systems.
