CCNA: CyberOps

Description

Cybersecurity operations play a key part in securing information systems through monitoring, detecting, investigating, analysing, and responding to security events, thus protecting systems from cybersecurity risks, threats, and vulnerabilities.  Cybersecurity operations jobs are also among the fastest-growing roles in IT, as organizations set up Security Operations Centres (SOCs), and establish teams to monitor and respond to security incidents.

The module makes use of Cisco Networking Academy teaching materials and is designed to give students the opportunity to progress towards Cisco certification.

On successful completion of this module the student will be able to:

  • Critically evaluate cyber security policies, standards, processes, and guidelines for the security management and monitoring of critical enterprise infrastructure
  • Demonstrate a detailed knowledge of potential security threats, the securing of host and network devices, and the integration of security and cryptographic systems
  • Install, configure and test network security technologies according to industry standards using commercial equipment

This is an SCQF Level 9 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 20 credits.
