Course Description

The purpose of this unit is to undertake a project that simulates a real cyber security environment.
The project may include using a Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) sandbox or equivalent laboratory environment. This environment allows the participant to demonstrate configuring and testing of firewalls, implementing Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and evaluating and identifying any traffic anomalies. The use of Red & Blue teaming exercises to identify security breaches and apply mitigation strategies to minimise further risk should be included as part of the exercise.
