Course Description

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to assist their organization in developing strategies to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recovery from cyber attacks used in Advanced Persistent Threats.

Course Scope

This course provides students with a firm understanding of an advanced persistent threat. This knowledge will place them in a better position to plan for and recover from inevitable cyber-attacks. This course will fill the gap in threat specific training for cybersecurity as a community driven course that will focus on the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT); describing, analyzing and demonstrating the phases of an APT and the attack methods used. The course will also provide participants with prevention, mitigation, and response techniques that correspond with the cyber kill chain and the NIST cybersecurity framework.
