Program Curriculum

  • You will get knowledge from top-tier subject matter experts, a strong alumni network, and your fellow students. You will succeed in the Bootcamp and in your career by developing a security mentality and learning about virtualization technologies, the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) triad, and emerging security concerns.

  • You will learn about Linux operating systems and how penetration testing and vulnerability analysis are used. You will learn how to use security tools like virtual private networks (VPNs), wireless access points (WAPs), and other things. Finally, you will write, test, and modify bash scripts to automate tasks.

  • You will comprehend the principles underlying how network-connected devices communicate and receive data. You will analyze network security strategies, develop and understand network diagrams, and describe encryption techniques.

  • Python can carry out a wide range of cybersecurity activities for experts, such as malware analysis, scanning, and penetration testing jobs. You will use logical and coding language structures to demonstrate how Python can be used to find and fix malicious exploits.

  • Firms use Windows to host and access their internal systems, with systems administrators managing the underlying resources in the background. To identify and address security issues for Windows operating systems, you will learn how to navigate the Windows command line. Additionally, you will use PowerShell to create system reports because it provides a more efficient way to query the system for cybersecurity experts.

  • Offensive security is a proactive and adversarial approach to protecting computer systems, networks, individuals, and their data from attacks. There are two ways to perform offensive security assessments: penetration testing and red teaming. In this module, you will learn both approaches across a series of topics including Reconnaissance (Profiling), Scanning (Enumeration), Vulnerability Analysis, Exploitation (Attack), and Reporting.

  • This module provides you with the hands-on training required to defend systems against cyber threats. You will also gain an understanding of the finer nuances of threat modeling, recon and preventing recon, log hunting, digital forensics, and much more.
