Course Objective

Organisations need to protect their digital assets and infrastructure. IT employees need to be cyber security-savvy so that they can play their part in protecting the organisation’s network and systems infrastructure.

While there are many instructor-led cyber security courses being offered today, not many of them are lab-based. To pick up the technical skills in cyber security, it is essential that learners have opportunities for hands-on practical sessions.

This course will be practical-based with hands-on examples for trainees to try out how to handle security incidents based on reported incidents

In the ICT Skills Framework, the course will cover skills in Incident Response, Forensic Investigation &threat analysis (PL4) and Governance Risk and Compliance (PL1)

This course aims to provide learners with the knowledge on info-security concepts and key incident handling phases. Hands-on sessions will allow learners to experience cyber incidents and participate in incident response exercises.
