Cyber Security Master

This five day hands-on and lecture course teaches skills and practices for defending networks and systems from cyber attacks. This course allows participants to understand what a cyber attack looks like by examining attack tools and techniques. Then the class teaches tools and techniques needed to combat the attacks.
