Access Controls:

The heart of information protection is centered on access control. Access controls manage all of the information-related assets of the organization from databases to users and buildings to equipment. In the access control domain, you’ll learn how to manage the ways that users and processes can interact with data and systems resources and ensure that the needs of confidentiality, integrity, and compliance are met.

Monitoring and Analysis

Despite the controls and safeguards we have in place, we must all expect incidents, challenges, and system failures however, the only thing worse than having an incident is not to be aware of the problem. Through effective and timely monitoring of logs and system activity, we can gather the data needed to proactively respond to developing trends and perform the analysis required to address any security concerns.


Cryptography protects information in transit, storage, and processing, It protects sensitive information from unauthorized disclosure and enables modern business through ensuring the integrity and non-repudiation of network-based traffic and e-commerce.

Malicious Code and Activity

New forms of malware and cyber-attacks are developed every year. The security practitioner is on the front line of defending systems and networks from attack and must be knowledgeable about new forms of attacks, preventative, detective and corrective measures, and the methods and tools of the attacker.

Networks and Communications

Networks are the lifeblood of nearly every business today. Networks connect all types of devices ranging from computers to automobiles and from alarms circuits and critical infrastructure devices to building control systems. Networks must be maintained and operated in a secure and reliable manner, free from interruption, interference, and modification.

Risk, Response and Recovery

Risk management is the foundation of a security program. Security serves the business and helps the organization to meet its goals and objectives. Through careful management of risk, security can minimize disruptions to the business missions, manage all security incidents effectively, and restore supporting business functions following any outage or disaster.

Security Operations and Administration

Security Operations and Administration focuses on the dependable, resilient, and efficient operation of information systems and the protection of information. Systems must be operated in compliance with laws and regulations and according to the policies and procedures of the organization.
