Upon completion of this course, each participant will be able to define cybersecurity terminology, compliance requirements, review sample attacks, and gain an understanding of the impact of current threat trends on cybersecurity implementation.
Cybersecurity is one of the hottest issues for today’s Federal and DOD Agencies and commercial organizations. Developed and developing nations, governments, defense departments and industries, and organizations in critical infrastructure verticals are being increasingly targeted by never-ending surges of cyber attacks from criminals and nation-states seeking information, economic or military advantage. The rapidity of the attacks is now so large and their level of sophistication so great, that many organizations are finding it difficult to identify which threats and vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk. They are faced with decisions on how resources should be allocated to ensure that the most likely and potentially damaging attacks are dealt with first. Exacerbating the problem is that most organizations do not have complete understanding of cybersecurity or an organizational approach to dealing with the challenges.
