Learners understand why cyber security exists and where it sits within an organisation. They learn how cyber security is measured, how to help organisations develop effective cyber security culture, and be introduced to threats such as social engineering. In the first 2 weeks, they get to know their team mates and develop the foundations of their cyber security understanding.
We introduce learners to governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), and how these concepts underpin the existence of cyber security. They develop their networking fundamentals and begin to consider an organisations security architecture by working on real scenario-based problems.
Now halfway through the course, learners will have developed a good understanding of cyber security principles. Using that knowledge, they begin to work on more complex exercises, such as Endpoint Protection Cloud Security, Digital Forensics, Access Control and other applied security areas too. They will use their new skills from weeks 1-7 in new scenarios to further develop their capability.
Learners continue to develop their understanding of the cyber security threat landscape and apply this understanding in the context of penetration testing and defensive security operations. They learn how to apply skills such as reconnaissance, malware analysis, threat intelligence, and log analysis in simulated scenarios.
In this final problem area, learners will use their new skills from weeks 1-14 to tackle big picture problems such as incident management & response and strategic business resilience. They will also consider topics such as physical security and industrial control systems.
We consulted with cyber security employers to offer a broad suite of cyber security certifications which give CAPSLOCK graduates breadth of knowledge across all cyber disciplines. We include four external industry certifications alongside our core 'Certified Cyber Security Practitioner' qualification. All certifications are included with the cost of the course.
