The increasing frequency and scale of cyber attacks continues to drive a reliance on cybersecurity professionals to keep individuals, businesses and Governments safe in the digital and physical world. This bootcamp will have you prepared to enter the field in just six months.
This part-time, 380-hour bootcamp covers cybersecurity fundamentals, systems and network security, vulnerability assessment, and security operations. By studying 15-20 hours per week, you should complete it in 6 months. Our flexible learning structure allows students to finish earlier if they're able to allocate more time each week.
This unit sets the foundation for your success. We begin with the basics where you’ll learn key vocabulary, tools and roles within an organization. As you progress from basics to fundamentals, you’ll be introduced to common IT security threats and mitigation techniques with multiple mini-projects.
Organization is key to individual and organizational success in cybersecurity. This unit provides you with IT project management templates as well as multiple mini-projects to implement your new project management skills.
Securing workstations and servers is a critical responsibility of a Cybersecurity Analyst. This unit focuses on the defenses you can put in place prior to an attack via multiple hands-on labs including: implementing security policies on Windows and Linux; network management; patching and securing systems; and configuring anti-virus.
Securing computer networks, devices and user data, requires cybersecurity professionals to utilize both hardware and software defenses. This unit will take a deep dive into network architecture and security scanning before students apply their knowledge to eight hands-on labs and two mini-projects.
Managing user identities and their access permissions through authentication is essential as organizations continue to require remote access capabilities. This unit includes labs and mini-projects focused on creating and securing user accounts as well as remote and local exploitation of a user’s computer.
This extensive unit covers security assessment, testing, and operations. Explore penetration testing, advanced web security practices and create test plans during the assessment and testing section. In addition, you’ll gain red-team experience cracking passwords, exploiting a vulnerable web application, and attacking web servers.
As you progress to the security operations section, you’ll learn blue-team encryptions, response workflows, and use current industry tools such as Splunk and Wireshark to combat attacks.
The rapid evolution of software capability and increased profitability has created a focus on functionality rather than security. This unit covers the essential, but often overlooked requirement to intertwine cybersecurity defenses into the development of new software applications.
The goal of this unit is to prepare you for the CompTIA Security+ certification exam. The CompTIA Security+ Certification is the globally recognized standard for evaluating fundamental cybersecurity skills. Here, you’ll get a refresher on key topics, sit mock exams, and receive a voucher to cover the entire cost of the certification before taking the exam with confidence.
We’ve partnered with CompTIA, the world's leading cybersecurity association to create this program. You’ll graduate with a CompTIA Security+ Certification which is chosen by more corporations and defense organizations to validate security skills than any other.
CompTIA's Security+ certification lays the groundwork for specialized career paths in cybersecurity. It covers core technical skills in risk assessment and management, incident response, forensics, enterprise networks, hybrid/cloud operations, and security controls.
Our curriculum includes preparation modules, practice exams and includes the CompTIA certification fee.
