TAIT 0611: Designing a Cyber Security Solution


The protection of critical assets and data is not only a good practice, but has become absolutely critical to any organization. Whether the organization belongs to the public or private sector, academia, non-profits, and every organization in between, we now know that we must secure our systems. But How? The current Cyber landscape is immense, yet, as an industry, we cannot even agree how to spell Cyber Security, let alone agree on a common design (is it spelled “Cyber Security”, “Cybersecurity”, or perhaps “CyberSecurity”?). What path do we take? Which vendor do we listen to? This hands-on course focuses on taking the information we learn and begin to develop a Cyber and Information Security program that participants can take with them to use in their offices, and even at home!
