ALC’s 5-day Cyber Security Practitioner course is designed for anyone who wants a sound understanding of Information / Cyber Security but who is in the earlier stages of their career and has not taken any of the established certifications such as CISSP® or CISM®. These certifications typically require a number of years prior experience.
The course is structured into two modules.
Foundation Module (3 days)
The Foundation module is designed to provide a good strong introduction to the key knowledge areas of Cyber Security. The course follows a robust syllabus based on industry best practice and international standards and frameworks. At the same time it provides maximum regional relevance by fully taking into account relevant sections from the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM) and the New Zealand Government’s Information Security Manual (NZISM).
Key areas covered include:
- Cybersecurity Concepts
- Risk Management
- Security Architecture
- Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
- Incident Response
Practitioner Module (2 days)
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.
Which option to choose?
You may enrol in Foundation only, or in the 5-day Foundation/Practitioner combined, according to your needs.
