Topics that will be covered:
Cyber Critical Infrastructure
Will teach the components of a successful cyber security program from a people, process, and technology perspective. Focusing on people, the student will learn how to address cyber security challenges from a business / mission perspective. Will learn how to work with technical and business teams to address critical cyber hygiene issues. When addressing process, the student will learn how to develop policies, procedures, guidelines, and standards that are effective and support their organization’s mission.
Counterintelligence Cyber Technology
This seminar initially introduces the main principles of cryptography to build a solid foundation. The seminar will cover some of the major technical pillars that rest on this foundation, including financial technology, Big Data, Machine Learning. The seminar will later dive deeply into digital currencies and digital ledgers, computer viruses, Malware, and automation. The seminar will tie all this knowledge into a heuristic overview of the cyber intelligence industry, its major public and private players, and how they collaboratively work together to form defensive and, in some cases, offensive capabilities.
