Cyber Advanced Syllabus
It's time to level up your cyber skills.
Hours 1-8: YOUR FIRST CYBER POSITION
Team Challenge: Threat Analysis
Welcome to the cyber frontline! You and your new cyber teammates will get to know our cyber experts and will be introduced to various methods of threat analysis that real companies use to detect attacks.
Hours 9-16: THREAT INTELLIGENCE
Team Challenge: System Hardening
Bad actors are always looking for weak points to launch cyber attacks. It's up to the cyber team to make sure the system is protected from as many of these threats as possible. Improving a system's defence overall is called system hardening. You'll look at all aspects of cyber defence and make sure the necessary protections are in place, suggesting improvements where necessary.
Hours 17-24: ZERO-DAY
Team Challenge: Stuxnet
Zero-day vulnerabilities are new, unknown vulnerabilities. Teams don't know what they're dealing with when they are hit by a zero-day attack. It's therefore crucial that cyber teams know how to quickly detect and patch zero-day threats.
You will be provided information on the Stuxnet zero-day, based on the available sources. Stuxnet is a real, notorious computer worm. This worm exploited four zero-day vulnerabilities. Guided by experts, you'll be challenged to react to a simulated Stuxnet attack.
Hours 25-32: CRISIS MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP
Team Challenge: Phishing Forensics
Your team must address a phishing threat with the Chief Information Security Officer unavailable. Thoroughness and swift decision-making are vital in assessing and rectifying this challenge.
Hours 33-40: FINAL DEBRIEF
Team Challenge: Boardroom Discussion and Interviews
Prepare for an in-depth review with the CISO and leadership team as the program culminates. Present a concise report of your experiences, challenges countered, and the strategies employed.
