We kick this phase off by catering to beginners. We will get you familiarized with basic IT terminologies and concepts.

After learning foundation IT concepts, you will learn the process to make a network FISMA compliant. We will do this using the Risk management Framework (RMF) for guidance.

Think of FISMA compliance as the documentation side of Information Security (aka Cybersecurity Policy). FISMA compliance is a requirement for all networks that hold government data.

Learning this skill alone can provide you with a lucrative career!

Once you’re done learning cybersecurity policy, you will get some hands on keyboard experience!

Phase 2 is where you will develop a home lab and learn how to use the popular security tools such as SPLUNK, Nessus and Wireshark. These are the most popular tools in use by major companies today.

After learning how to use popular security tools, we will practice our hacking skills with Metasploit Framework.

You will learn to hack wired and wireless networks. If you can think like an hacker, you will be better suited to defend against them. Not to mention is will be impressive to discuss your hacking skills during your job interview ?
