  • Cyber Warfare Certification
    June 22-June 26, 2015

    Inspired by the work of the U.S. Cyber Command, this intensive five-day course examines strategy and effects-based operations (EBO), as well as crisis and contingency planning in the cyber domain. Students will study the integration of cyberspace and spectrum management operations, and will gain an understanding of cyber intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), game theory, policy and strategy as they relate to cyber planning and critical infrastructure protection.

  •  Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
    This course was offered in July 2014. Please contact us if you are interested in a future course offering.

    This course is designed to provide students with an umbrella framework – the essential body of knowledge that integrates all of the professional best business practices, skills and abilities that cybersecurity professionals need to know. This course will also prepare students for professional CISSP certification (or become a CISSP Associate if students possess less than five years of experience in the field).
