Fundamentals of Information Systems Security

Learn about new risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with the transformation to a digital world.

GK# 3431

Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn about new risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with the transformation to a digital world, including a look at how business, government, and individuals operate today. You will also be provided with a high-level overview of each of the seven domains within the System Security Certified Practitioner certification.

In addition to premium instructional content from Jones & Bartlett Learning's comprehensive Information Systems Security and Assurance (ISSA) curriculum, this course provides access to a customized "virtual sandbox" learning environment that aggregates an unparalleled spectrum of cybersecurity applications. Providing instant, unscheduled access to labs from the convenience of a web-browser, this course allows you to practice "white hat" hacking on a real IT infrastructure-these are not simulations. Winner of the "Security Training and Educational Programs" top prize at the prestigious 2013 Global Excellence Awards by Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, these labs provide valuable exposure to complex, real world challenges and over 200 hours of training exercises on how hackers and perpetrators use these applications and tools.
