ALC’s 5-day Cyber Security Foundation+Practitioner® course is designed for anyone who wants a sound understanding of Information / Cyber Security and a solid base on which to build their career. There are no pre-requisites to attend.
The course is structured into two modules.
The Foundation module is designed to provide a good strong introduction to the key knowledge areas of Cyber Security. You don’t need to be an aspiring security professional to do this module, it is suitable for all levels. The course follows a robust syllabus that covers all the key areas you need to know. At the same time it provides maximum regional relevance by fully taking into account appropriate sections from the New Zealand Government’s Information Security Manual (NZISM) and the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM).
This module is all about applying the theory. It builds upon and reinforces the material learnt in the Foundation module. The course makes strong use of a case study, along with workshops and exercises. Participants will be provided with sample Word and Excel templates for use.
You may enrol in Foundation only, or in the 5-day Foundation/Practitioner combined, according to your needs.
