Cybersecurity Essentials

Every day, Cybersecurity threats are growing in complexity and scale. In their Global Risks Report (2021) publication, even the World Economic Forum listed Cybersecurity failure among the top 5 global risks, along with threats like extreme weather and infectious diseases. At the same time, organizations everywhere seek new cybersecurity talent. In this course, learners develop workforce readiness skills and build a foundation for success in cybersecurity-related careers. With video and rich interactive media support, participants learn, apply, and practice cybersecurity knowledge and skills through a series of in-depth, hands-on experiences and simulated activities that reinforce their learning. Cybersecurity Essentials teaches comprehensive cybersecurity concepts and skills at the entry level, from threat mitigation and defense to post-incident forensics. Learners will progress from basic cybersecurity concepts to experiences in assessing vulnerabilities and risks later in the curriculum. This course is offered in partnership with Michigan Information Technology Training, LLC. (MITT)
