Course Description

This course provides participants with specific information regarding targeted cyber attacks, including advanced persistent threats. This information will place them in a better position to plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from targeted cyber attacks. This course will fill the gap in threat-specific training for cybersecurity as a community-driven course that focuses on the phases of targeted cyber attacks and the attacker methods used during each phase. Participants will also receive valuable information on cyber attack prevention, mitigation and response.

I can’t think of a better way to have spent my time. It was eye-opening and extremely thought-provoking. We, unfortunately, had an opportunity almost immediately to implement some of the advice you and your team gave us when a small plane crashed in the woods south of our airport on Wednesday morning. Sadly, both individuals in the plane were killed. Your advice on communications was extremely valuable to us during and after that incident.
