This course exposes participants to information security controls. The course will cover technology controls through a wide variety of foundational topics of information security; cyber security; application, data and operating system security; securing virtual environments; cloud and mobile security; network security; the Internet of Things; and staying safe online. The course will also use case studies to explore current cyber threats including phishing scams, zero day exploits, man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attacks, IP spoofing, malware and Trojan exploits, and physical security exploits. By the end of the course, participants will have an understanding of critical?information security topics, and will be able to make strategic decisions and advise on issues and trends.
