Course outline.
You will undertake the course as a Trainee Cyber Security Consultant, working in a small team to solve real hands-on problems with the support of experienced instructors. You will work within a fictitious case-study business which simulates the real cyber security workplace.
Weeks 1 -2: Understanding Cyber Security in Business

Understand why cyber security exists and where it sits within an organisation. You will learn how cyber security is measured, how to help organisations develop effective cyber security culture, and be introduced to threats such as social engineering. In the first 2 weeks, you will get to know your team mates and develop the foundations of your cyber security understanding.

Weeks 3-7: Security by Design

We introduce you to governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), and how these concepts underpin the existence of cyber security. You'll develop your networking fundamentals and begin to consider an organisations security architecture by working on real scenario-based problems.

Weeks 8-11: Applied Security

Now halfway through the course, you will have developed a good understanding of cyber security principles. Using that knowledge, you will begin to work on more complex exercises, such as Endpoint Protection Cloud Security, Digital Forensics, Access Control and other applied security areas too. You will use your new skills from weeks 1-7 in new scenarios to further develop your understanding.

Weeks 12 - 14: Offensive & Defensive Security

You will continue to develop your understanding of cyber security threat landscape and apply this understanding in the context of penetration testing (often referred to as red teaming or ethical hacking) and security operations (often known as blue-teaming or SOC). You will learn how to apply skills such as reconnaissance, malware analysis, threat intelligence, and log analysis in simulated scenarios.

Weeks 14 - 16: Business Continuity Management

In this final problem area, you will use your new skills from weeks 1-14 to tackle big picture problems such as incident management & response and strategic business resilience. You will also consider topics such as physical security and industrial control systems.

The cyber skills you will learn.
When you learn new skills at CAPSLOCK, it is always in context of how it applies in industry. As you tackle real cyber problems and scenarios, you will learn about all the individual skills shown below.
