Course Details

About the course

This course provides an examination of the landscape, key terms, and concepts that a security practitioner needs to understand in order to protect their data centers. Students will be introduced to best practices before, during, and after a cyberattack has taken place. The course provides a technical overview of hacking, including how attackers conduct surveillance to identify security weaknesses, foot-printing a targeted site, and the methodology hackers follow in exploiting known vulnerabilities. Students will gain experience designing a penetration test plan, implementing intrusion detection systems, and performing incident response with basic digital forensics. Ethical hacking and penetration testing tools will be described, with the aid of a secure, online virtual cloud lab environment where students can safely practice their skills. (prerequisite: CMPT 416N)
