The first course in the CSX Practitioner series focuses on key cyber security skills and includes foundational, real world instruction in the Identify and Protect domains. Topics range from preliminary network scanning to security control implementation. Through the completion of multiple lab-reinforced modules, students will learn how to apply industry-developed, experience-based methods to the identification of key networks and learn to develop appropriate protection mechanisms.
The Identify domain teaches students to recognize, assess and remediate specific internal and external network threats.
The Protect domain offers instruction in the basic concepts, methods, and tools associated with implementing cyber security controls to protect a system from the identified threats.
