cyber risk competency program

fcrmp 101

risk management policy and methods

Students will learn the fundamentals of information assurance and methodologies of securing a network and its hosts. Students will learn the necessary skills to identify risks and implement defense in depth via a multitude of methods. Students review and analyze the compliance implications of selected cloud security policies and methods with a specific focus on the NIST RMF.

risk management methodology

Integrating enterprise and cloud systems risk management, students apply the NIST RMF as they complete project deliverables and communicate project results. In addition, students develop in-depth analytic competencies.

In this virtual practicum, focusing on integrated enterprise on-prem and cloud systems, students develop the capability to evaluate a test case scenario system, develop an SSP, and select and/or write appropriate security controls. Students then document results.

Focusing on integrated enterprise on-prem and cloud systems, students develop the capability to evaluate system security, analyze system assessment reports to make recommendations for a POA&M, comply with all Authorization to Operate package requirements, and strategically develop ISCM. Recommendations based on completed assessment and authorization project for the enterprise on-prem and cloud systems.

FCIOD 101 PART 1

Security Fundamentals/Understanding Computer Network Exploitation
Students will learn the fundamentals of information assurance and methodologies of securing a network and its hosts. Students will learn the necessary skills to identify risks and implement defense in depth via a multitude of methods. Students will learn about firewalls, anti-virus solutions, honeypots, proxies and IDS/IPS solutions. Including select Cyber Range lab activities to be selected by the instructor:
  • Cyber concepts
  • Linux Fundamentals
  • Networking basics
  • Linux logging
  • Web hosting
  • Security Operations
  • IoT Security
  • Microsoft OS Management
  • Splunk
  • SIEM & SOAR
  • Firewalls
  • Battlepath – SOC 1 & 2
  • Battlepath – MITRE ATT&CK

FCIOD 101 PART 2

In addition, students will learn through each stage of offensive operations methodologies using tradecraft, stealth, and detection avoidance as the key principles. Students will gain proficiency with open-source penetration tools and learn techniques in vulnerability scanning, remote and client-side exploitation, and advanced post-exploitation techniques targeting both Windows and Unix based operating systems.

FCIOD 201

Cyber Operations and Intermediate Incident Response

Students will learn a wide variety of topics relevant to operationally focused cyber missions within the offensive and defensive arena. This course focuses heavily on deep packet inspection, statistical flow record analysis, post-exploitation forensics, intrusion detection, network tunneling, and malware network behavior. Extensive network analysis is conducted throughout each stage of the hacker methodology to include packet capturing of scanning, service enumeration, exploitation, man-in-the-middle techniques, and tunneling. The course progresses into understanding breach detection, damage assessment procedures, and incident response actions from both technical and legal perspectives. Students detect and respond to simulated system intrusions, develop, and implement mitigation strategies, and create documentation of the incident with supporting custodial forensic evidence. Including select Cyber Range lab activities to be selected by the instructor:

  • Cyber concepts
  • Linux Fundamentals
  • Networking basics
  • Linux logging
  • Web hosting
  • Security Operations
  • Snort IDS
  • Vulnerability Assessments
  • Digital Forensics
  • IoT Security
  • Microsoft OS Management
  • Splunk

FCIOD 301

Windows, Linux, and Network-based Intrusion detection and analysis

Students will expand on their knowledge of intrusion detection systems both within the network and on the hosts. Within the networking section students will learn proper placement of intrusion detection systems and proper setup. Students will focus on using open-source detection software to capture, analyze, and report on different types of intrusions. Within the host-based sections students will configure security products and use analytic tools to identify anomalous behavior on the hosts. Students will use timeline and log analysis to craft meaningful written reports categorizing identified behaviors and anomalies in addition to building actor profiles based off their findings. Using the incident response techniques, they learned previously, students will implement real-time solutions for simulated customers while providing risk management analysis to mitigate security holes and establish protective tactics.

FCIOD 401

Malware Analysis, Threat Assessment, Reverse Engineering, and Behavioral Malware Analysis

This course focuses on the identification and analysis of suspicious files found on both Windows and Linux operating systems. The course covers the common purpose of most malware types and exposes students to the malware triage cycle. Students will profile malicious executables, identify key metadata and setup for static and behavioral analysis. Each lab represents the different threats found on the internet and walks the students through the process of collecting passive observables, running through behavioral analysis in a Sandbox environment, and performing memory analysis.

FCIOD SP

Specializations (AI, ML, 5g, uas)

Students participate in a Cyber Information Operations Defense related to specific topics created and maintained by the University’s top researchers.
