Module 16:
Advanced Cybersecurity


This course delves into the building blocks of cybersecurity solution environments and further explores the range of cyber threats that cybersecurity solutions can be designed to protect organizations from. The course beings by establishing a set of cybersecurity technology mechanisms that represent the common components that comprise cybersecurity solutions. The course then explores a series of formal processes and procedures used to establish sound practices that utilize the mechanisms. The course concludes with comprehensive coverage of common cyber threats and attacks and further explains how each can be mitigated using the previously described mechanisms and processes.

The following primary topics are covered:

  • – 15 Cybersecurity Mechanisms (including Honeypots, , Biometric Scanners, Intrusion Detection, Malicious Code Analysis and User Behavior Analytics Systems)
  • – 9 Cybersecurity Monitoring Mechanisms (including Malware Monitors, Network Intrusion Monitors and Data Loss Protection Monitors)
  • – 13 Cybersecurity Processes (including Attack Surface Reduction, Continuous Vulnerability Management and Network Monitoring and Defense)
  • – Insider Threat Detection and Incident Response Management
  • – Cyber Threat Intelligence and Cyber Attack Motivations
  • – 13 Common Cyber Threats and Attacks (including Botnets, Tunneling and Remote Code Execution Attacks and 8 types of Malware)
  • – Insider Threats, Social Engineering and Phishing
  • – Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)

The utilization of data science technologies (such as AI and Machine Learning) is further covered in relation to both how such technologies can be used to improve cybersecurity environments and how these technologies can be abused to carry out more sophisticated cyber attacks. Posters are further provided to show how mechanisms map to processes and how mechanisms and processes map to cyber threats and attacks.
