CSFI: Defensive Cyberspace Operations Engineer (DCOE)

Develop cyberspace operations skills and obtain a DCO-based certification.

In this course from the Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI), students will develop the skills for planning, executing, and integrating defensive cyberspace operations (DCO) into organizational missions in support of DCO requirements. This course builds upon the planning skills learned in the Introduction to Cyber Warfare and Operations Design (ICWOD) course. Adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and their use of associated tools are presented following the cyber kill chain for students to learn to defend friendly networks against current and emerging threats.

Using multiple labs, this course will provide students with hands-on exposure to deploy live attacks and analysis in a controlled environment to then learn how to prevent, detect, and counter such activities.

Note: This course requires students to bring their own laptop preloaded with VMware Workstation 9 or 10.

In order to attain the DCOE certification, students must pass the DCOE exam (open-book, included as part of the course).
