Cyber Intrusion Fundamentals

The Skinny R&D Cyber Intrusion Fundamentals (CIF) class is designed to take participating students on a hacker’s journey of initial target identification to fully compromise websites, Windows enterprise networks, cell phones, and home computers. Students of any skill level will learn the realistic tactics and techniques intruders use to gain unauthorized access to systems worldwide.

Without a firm understanding of how hackers successfully execute cyber intrusions, it is impossible to properly defend any electronic asset in an era constructed on Internet-connected devices. Students will be armed with technical and procedural skills required to perform internal and external cyber assessments focused on acquiring unauthorized access to data and computer resources.

Cyber intrusions can be costly for any organization large or small. This course will uncover the practical approach used by malicious actors to carry out their targeted attacks. Cyber Intrusion Fundamentals is intensely hands-on with students participating in class demonstrations and challenges to ingrain course content. By the end of the course, students will walk away with a range of tools, software, and guides to ensure they can develop their own personal cyber test range.

Students will receive:
