The free, online short course runs over five weeks and will include an in-depth session on the Heartbleed cyber bug.
The course is being delivered by Erdal Ozkaya – a recipient of numerous cybersecurity education awards and presenter at security conferences all over the world. “If you enrol, you had better strap on your seat belt because Erdal’s lectures are pretty full on,” said CEO of IT Masters, Martin Hale. “The good news is that the lectures are recorded so you can go back over whatever you missed at the live sessions.”
He added: “One thing I can promise is that you will not be bored because Erdal’s enthusiasm is infectious and the information he presents is the very latest in cyber security best practice.”
The aim of the short course is to give students a taste of what it is like to undertake postgraduate study via distance education with Charles Sturt University.
The Hacking Countermeasures short course covers sections of ITE516: Hacking Countermeasures, a subject in the Information Systems Security Masters Degree at Charles Sturt University. As much as possible, the short course mirrors the format of the subject that it is based on including weekly lectures, weekly homework, and even a final exam,” said Hale.
A unique feature of the Master of IS Security is that a number of the subjects are designed to help students prepare for the world’s most popular cyber security certifications including CISSP and Certified Ethical Hacker.
“This mixture of the very latest in industry best practice combined with the rigour of academic assessments is unique and is one of the reasons that we have over 1000 IT professionals studying with Charles Sturt University and dominate the market for Aussie IT professionals who want to do a master degrees” said Hale.
