Cyber Security:
Defending Critical Infrastructure

This one-day workshop is designed to provide professionals with the information they need to address cyber security and help to defend critical infrastructure. Our growing dependence on cyberspace has created new vulnerabilities that are exploited as fast as or faster than an organization can respond. Cyber attacks can heavily impact business losses as they can cause economic damage, physical destruction, and even the loss of human life. They constitute a serious challenge to U.S. national security and demand greater attention from American leaders.

The training will provide information security professionals with a broad base of cyber security foundations to use and help those interested in this field understand the requirements of the cyber security job. The seminar is a good starting point for those seeking a broad understanding of the challenges and skills needed to secure Internet-based and networked computer systems.

You will learn about cyber terminology, emerging rules, and regulatory compliance requirements that cyber business professionals need to know. At a high level, this course discusses job roles and emerging needs for those wanting to move into the cyber security market.   Printable Flyer
