Course Description

In this lecture only course, you will learn what cyber is and gain an understanding of Computer Network Attack (CNA) and Computer Network Exploitation (CNE), which are derived from several public unclassified DoD documents, manuals, and directives. You will examine parallels between the cyber and kinetic counterparts and learn strategic uses, including when to deploy CNA and CNE operations. You will discover the limitations and legal considerations of CNA and CNE operations, and you’ll walk through various attack scenarios to determine your proper course of action
