Target Audience

  • This course is designed primarily for cybersecurity practitioners preparing for or who currently perform job functions related to protecting information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. It is ideal for those roles within federal contracting companies, and private sector firms who whose mission or strategic objectives require the execution of Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) or DoD Information Network (DODIN) operation and incident handling.This course focuses on the knowledge, ability, and skills necessary to provide for the defense of those information systems in a cybersecurity context, including protection, detection, analysis, investigation, and response processes.
  • In addition, the course ensures that all members of an IT team—regardless of size, rank or budget—understand their rolein the cyber defense, incident response, andincident handling process.

Attendee Requirements

To ensure your success in this course, you should meet the following requirements: 

  • At least two years (recommended) of experienceor education in computer network security technology, or a related field. 
  • The ability or curiosity to recognize information security vulnerabilities and threats in the context of risk management. 
  • Foundational knowledge of the concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in network environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and VPNs. 
  • General knowledge of theconcepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in computing environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, basic authentication and authorization, resource permissions, and anti-malware mechanisms.
