The first module will equip you with basic knowledge of the scams, malware, and mistakes that commonly result in cyber attacks. In the second module, you will apply and expand upon this new knowledge by creating a Business Continuity Plan for your company (or a mock company if you so choose). The data you provide will result in a robust map of your company’s business processes and the associated cybersecurity risk levels. You can take this map with you after the course to enact real change in your company.
In the final module, you will delve into the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to discover the core functions and associated security controls that can help your company (1) IDENTIFY assets, (2) PROTECT against future attacks, (3) DETECT current attacks, (4) RESPOND appropriately during an attack, and (5) RECOVER from an attack. You will then use this knowledge and your Business Continuity Plan to create a Target Profile that represents where your goals for improving your company’s cybersecurity strategies after you complete the course.
