Course Description

The cybersecurity systems engineering field is just now receiving the attention it deserves given the continual barrage of cyber-attacks on protected data. Cybersecurity systems engineering is all about preventing and/or resolving cybersecurity issues. Many analysts believe the realm of cybersecurity systems engineering has been vastly overlooked or underdeveloped in addressing cybersecurity risks and vulnerabilities among industrial control systems and other Internet of Things networks and devices.

Cybersecurity systems engineering training provides you with an interdisciplinary approach of system engineering in order to achieve a secure information system in cyber world. Cybersecurity systems engineering training helps you to relate the cybersecurity problems to the real world and to apply a systems engineering approach to satisfy the security of information technology. From the systems engineering point of view, information technology systems are purely engineering systems which include software and human operators as well a hardware. For this engineered type of information system, a systems engineering approach helps the elements of a cybersecurity system fit together to accomplish the objective of the whole. This unified objective is to secure the information system from any unwanted threats or vulnerabilities. Therefore, the cybersecurity systems engineering training gives you an engineered point of view to tackle the cybersecurity issues.
