Course Content

Information Technology Fundamentals (ITF)

IT Fundamentals refers to a knowledge and understanding of the basic concepts in information technology (IT). It provides a base for individuals in different areas of information technology and establishes the basis for further training and specialist preparation.

Python

To do well in cyber security, it’s important to understand the basic rules and concepts of Python, a frequently used programming language. As a cyber security analyst, you should have a strong understanding of important concepts like variable elements, control structures, loops, functions, error handling, and file reading and writing. Additionally, you should know how to make network connections with Python, including how someone attacking a computer system could analyze a network or communicate with a server. Python is also used to develop various security tools, making it a valuable language to learn in this field.

Linux 

Linux is an open-source operating system widely known for its strong security features and flexible nature, making it very beneficial from a digital security point of view. Its strong user and permission management system, regular security updates, and active support community contribute to its reputation as a secure platform.

Network 

Network covers essential topics in the area of digital networks from a cyber security point of view. It includes understanding network types, the OSI model, TCP/IP protocols, different network devices, network addressing and subnetting, and problem-solving techniques. This knowledge is essential for cyber security professionals as it helps them to analyze network traffic, identify potential risks, spot malicious activities, and introduce effective security measures. Understanding network concepts helps keep networks secure, prevent access that is not official, and ensure that data sent over networks is confidential, available, and can be trusted.

SDLC

SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) is the process development professionals follow to create and maintain software. Test Automation is the process of making manual tests automatic. In SDLC, Test Automation is often used in the testing phase to check that software is working. It saves time and effort by running and repeating tests in an automatic way.

SQL

Structured Query Language (SQL) is used to communicate with a database. According to ANSI (American National Standards Institute), it is accepted as the standard language for communicating between database management systems.

SQL is used for jobs such as data handling, asking queries, data definition, and database management through database management systems. Its popularity and wide use have played a significant role in developing database technologies.

AWS

AWS is a cloud service offered by Amazon that allows users to rent computer power, storage space, and other kinds of technical help over the Internet.

AWS includes many services, such as hosting websites, database services, artificial intelligence, and machine learning applications.

These services allow users to perform technical operations at lower costs and with greater flexibility without using complex systems and software that users must install and manage on their computers or servers.

Offensive Security Operation 

Offensive Security Operation refers to a preventive approach in cyber security, where ethical hackers copy real-world attacks to identify risks in a system or network. It involves penetration testing, red teaming, and risk assessments. The goal is to discover weaknesses before real hackers can exploit them, and in the end, to improve the general security position of an organization.

Defensive Security Operation 

Defensive Security Operation refers to a preventive approach in cyber security aimed at protecting systems and networks from potential threats and attacks. It involves using different preventive measures, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and security monitoring, to identify and reduce risks. By focusing on making the internal structure of security stronger and introducing best practices, defensive security operations aim to prevent access which is not official and to ensure that assets (like sound and image files) which are important remain private, available, and to be trusted.

Lab Creation 

Lab Creation refers to setting up a virtual lab environment using a hypervisor (such as VirtualBox or VMWare) to run virtual machines like Kali Linux and Metasploitable-2. This involves installing and selecting the necessary software and network options to create a controlled separate environment for cyber security testing and penetration testing purposes. By creating a virtual lab, security professionals can safely practice and copy various attack scenarios to improve their skills and knowledge in offensive security operations.

Laboratory Activities 

Laboratory Activities refer to the practical exercises and activities conducted using security information and event management (SIEM) tools such as Splunk, The Hive, Graylog, and Wazuh. Security analysts often use these tools to monitor, analyze, and respond to real-time security incidents and events. Through lab activities, individuals gain hands-on experience using these tools to identify and investigate security incidents, analyze activity records, and implement effective security measures. This improves their skills and knowledge in security operations and prepares them for real-world scenarios as SOC analysts.

Job Hunting 

Job Hunting from a cybersecurity point of view involves essential skills and strategies for professionals seeking job opportunities. This includes creating a well-organized individual resume that highlights cybersecurity expertise, establishing a solid online professional presence through a LinkedIn account, and preparing for interviews by demonstrating technical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and understanding of industry best practices. These aspects are important in the cybersecurity job market, where employers seek individuals with a strong base in cybersecurity, effective communication skills, and the ability to demonstrate their expertise in securing systems and networks.
