The CAPSLOCK course & curriculum
The CAPSLOCK curriculum was designed by global employers, leading cyber security professionals, and expert academics. We teach the cyber security skills needed in the workplace today.
Course outline
Learners undertake the course as a Trainee Cyber Security Consultant, working in a small team to solve real hands-on problems with the support of experienced instructors. They work within a fictitious case-study business which simulates the real cyber security workplace.
Weeks 1 -2: Understanding Cyber Security in Business

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.

Weeks 3-7: Security by Design

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.

Weeks 8-11: Applied Security

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.

Weeks 12 - 14: Offensive & Defensive Security

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.

Weeks 14 - 16: Business Continuity Management

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.

The cyber skills CAPSLOCK learners learn
When we teach specific skills at CAPSLOCK, it is always in context of how it applies in industry. As learners tackle real cyber problems and scenarios, they will learn about all the individual skills shown below.

Learners also have the opportunity to gain 4 additional industry certs

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.
