Week 1 - Introduction to Cybersecurity Hardware Basics

Cybersecurity involves protecting sensitive information, systems, programs, and networks from harmful digital attacks. When it comes to protecting a computer system, hardware devices are just as important as the software installed on it. Hardware devices can be used to protect computer systems from these malicious attacks. It is important to understand the different hardware devices used for cybersecurity.

Week 2 - Networking Basics

Networking is the process of linking computer systems together to enable the transfer of data between them. Data is shared back and forth between systems through devices that communicate with each other, as well as with other networks. As data is shared back and forth between systems, security devices monitor the traffic and filter out potential harmful traffic. It is important to understand how networking works, as well as the different devices in a network.

Week 3 - Networking

Networks have different features, processes, and configurations when working across servers. There are also technologies used to monitor a system or network for harmful threats. When a threat is detected, they take a set of defined measures to prevent it from affecting the system. It is therefore important to understand the dynamics of a network. 

This week will cover

  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) 
  • Unicast, Broadcast, Multicast
