Gain an in-depth overview of cybersecurity

This two-week course delves into the fundamentals of cybersecurity to help you better protect your company from an attack.

You’ll learn to describe the current enterprise security landscape before exploring key security philosophies such as the Assume Compromise approach. You’ll also gain hands-on experience as you complete practical exercises.

Explore the lateral movement of red and blue teams

The course emphasises the red and blue cybersecurity professionals and helps you identify their roles and responsibilities.

The goal of the red team is to penetrate security and laterally move across the system while the blue team must defend, respond, and protect.

You’ll practice red team versus blue team exercises to understand how both teams work together to strengthen a company’s defences.

Understand the importance of network infrastructure security

You’ll also examine the responses to organisational security to help you understand how enterprise security works in practice.

Learn from LAAS professionals

You’ll learn practical skills from the experts at CloudSwyft, a leading Learning-as-a-Service platform provider.
