This Certificate has been developed in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) Cyber Defence Center.
The modules, content and delivery have been created in collaboration with HPE to ensure that the required skillset is available to all organisations (cyber specific or not), to proactively and reactively mitigate against cyberattack operations.
Organisations implement security measures to protect against data loss. Risk and compliance controls implemented within an organisation often fail to protect the organisation against a cyberattack incident. In such an event, cybersecurity operations respond to the incident and defend the compromised vulnerability.
The aim of the Certificate is to educate IT practitioners in systematically responding to cyberattack incidents. It examines the tools to identify threat actors. Models and frameworks are followed to manage the response. Data analytics can use tools such as machine learning to identify anomalies in organisational IT traffic. Cybersecurity Operations involves implementing secure architecture to defend against vulnerable systems. It can be considered the stage when risk and compliance has failed.
