IT-Security Practitioner (ITSP) offers a unique combination of technical security skills, frameworks that govern IT security and key security management topics. You will immerse yourself in attack trends and mitigation techniques and practice technical skills in cybersecurity protection, detection, response and recovery. In addition, you will perform management and architecting activities, such as developing a cyber security framework, designing a security infrastructure, creating a role-based access model, and determining benchmarks for information classification.


ITSP benefits those that want to further specialize in the technical aspects of IT Security and lay the foundation to progress into a IT / Cyber Security Management role. If you are looking for an entry level cybersecurity training, you should take the IT Security Foundation course.


This course is taught entirely in English.
