CBA105 is designed to develop a broad range of skills across security policy development and management, as well as a technical understanding of a wide range of security controls. Learners will develop skills in the use of data collected from a variety of cyber defense tools (e.g., IDS alerts, firewalls, network traffic logs) to analyze events that occur within their environments for the purposes of mitigating threats. Learners will also develop skills that will allow them to lead, coordinate, communicate, integrate, and account for the overall success of the cybersecurity program, ensuring alignment with agency or enterprise priorities. Learners will understand how to develop and maintain cybersecurity plans, strategies, and policies to support and align with organizational cybersecurity initiatives and regulatory compliance. They will develop an appreciation for the responsibility for the cybersecurity of a program, organization, system, or enclave. They will leave with the necessary skills and best practices to effectively create and execute enterprise-wide information security strategies.
