Technical assistance for subjects as varied as emergency operations for schools and semiconductor manufacturing has never been more accessible or affordable than through eLearning courses. A web-based planning tool for K-12 educational facilities in Texas allows schools to create a multi-hazard emergency operations plan. In the semiconductor manufacturing industry, courses range from professional development to new-hire training. These courses have enabled some of the largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world, including Texas Instruments and Samsung, to meet workforce training needs online. A semiconductor processing overview provides both professional development and a big-picture overview for new hires or members of the supply chain. Beginning with semiconductor devices and processing measurements step-by-step skills training courses continue through quality control and microcontamination training. Each online course advances production skills ending with a course in how to put it all together in semiconductor training.

Industry Cybersecurity AWR403 Examining Advanced Persistent Threats
Today’s advanced persistent threats (APTs) are increasingly sophisticated, varied, targeted, aggressive, and successful. There is an increasing deployment of and dependence on Internet of Things (IoT) for remote access devices to National Critical Infrastructure Sectors and Services (NCISS). Inadequate deployment and maintenance of security on these systems could provide opportunities for attackers to harm to the American citizenry through NCISS infrastructure and associated resource disruption. This online course provides an overview of similarities and differences between traditional systems attacks and APT attacks. At the end of this course, participants should possess a fundamental understanding of the most common attack path for various advanced persistent threats (APTs). The course covers (a) the cyber kill chain model (b) APT cases and attack techniques and tools; and (c) common APT defense strategiesThis course is offered by the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC) and was
developed by the NCPC partner the Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI).  The course is funded through the DHS/FEMA Homeland Security National Training Program and is offered at no cost. Show less
