Course Outline


Cybersecurity Foundations
Security+ Certification Prep Course


In an ever-changing political and criminal landscape, there is an increasing need for people with specialized and up-to-date knowledge of current cybersecurity laws, regulations, and best practices. The skills gap this need creates in an organization exposes the organization to liability.

Cybersecurity Specialization: Governance, Risk, and Compliance will give you an understanding of the current laws and regulations that drive the creation of a governance system of rules, practices, and processes by which a company is directed and controlled. Understanding the fundamentals of the implementation of a risk management strategy will help your organization achieve compliance through policy management, control creation, and assessment of the effectiveness of controls. In this course, you will learn to set up processes to enforce compliant behaviors in your organization, including the enforcement of a systemic culture of documentation, verification, audits, remediation, follow-through, responsibility, and authority.

The course uses a challenge-based design focusing on what a learner should be able to do at the end of the course and back on the job. The practice opportunities and challenge activities resemble—as much as possible—tasks the learner would be asked to perform in a real-life situation.

  • Develop a strategy to mitigate compliance risk based on laws governing Information Technology and reporting requirements to various regulatory bodies
  • Contribute to a risk management strategy that will frame an organization's risk tolerance along with defining and enabling managers to understand the levels of risk they are allowed to take
  • Create policies supported by controls that utilize frameworks and standards to minimize risk to an acceptable level
  • Determine the mechanisms to raise the organization's risk maturity level
  • Support both top-down and bottom-up approaches to enterprise security by acquiring management buy-in and improving employee attitudes to security
  • Contribute to a business continuity plan that prioritizes business processes
  • Select an eGRC tool to help manage risk based on requirements and capabilities

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
