During the Cyber Attack Infrastructure course, students will learn and practically explore how to identify vulnerabilities across the network and the digital landscape of the company.
Students will receive relevant knowledge and tools to successfully tackle cyber breaches and other threats, as well as to monitor and search for network vulnerabilities and breaches.
In the field of cybersecurity and information security, there is a wide range of cyber attack types. Attackers have various options to target digital assets on the network, aiming to cause damage, extract profits, steal business information, demand ransoms, and more.
The evolution of technology leads to endless vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit using a variety of methods and strategies to execute cyber attacks.
In many cases, it can be observed that cyber attacks are highly complex and intricate, requiring meticulous planning and sometimes collaboration among teams of attackers from around the world.
The first step in the cybersecurity career path is to deeply understand the methods that attackers use to breach security.
Once you have a comprehensive understanding of the types of breaches, you can begin to learn and understand the hacker's mindset and intentions, preparing defense and monitoring plans for security breaches accordingly.
Some of the study areas covered in the course include:
- Data Collection
- Denial-of-service (DoS)
