CyberWarrior Academy’s Cybersecurity Bootcamp Courses and Certifications

CompTIA Network+ (Certification)

CompTIA Network+ helps develop a career in IT infrastructure covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks. This certification covers how to install, maintain, troubleshoot, and support a network, understanding different aspects of networking technologies, including TCP/IP and the OSI model. It also tests knowledge of network components and where they function in association with the OSI model, network cabling, network security, and network troubleshooting.

CompTIA Security+ (Certification)

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on troubleshooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. This course covers everything from how to install and configure systems to secure applications, networks, and devices, through performing threat analysis responding with appropriate mitigation techniques.

Firewalls & IDPS

Students will create and implement firewalls and IDPS using opensource software. They will learn Cisco ACLs using packet simulators like PacketTracer, Linux IP Tables, Opensource firewall Pfsense, implementing Snort IDPS and creating customized rules, Suricata, BRO and connecting it to SecurityOnion using an NSM tool. This module will allow them to build the confidence to feel comfortable working with any Firewall or IDPS system in the market.

Vulnerability Management

Students learn to create an inventory of assets using discovery tools and domain controller queries, and how to use basic vulnerability scanning capabilities of tools like NMAP. Students will create their own NMAP scripts and learn popular industry tools like Tenable Nessus Vulnerability Management, Rapid7 InsightVM, OpenVAS, among others. To culminate the class, students learn how to make an executive report and design remediation strategies.

Packet Analysis

This course teaches how to analyze packets and perform network forensic investigations effectively, using open-source software. Participants also learn how to differentiate between normal vs. abnormal protocols & behaviors. We cover tools like tcpdump, Wireshark & Tshark, Snort, Bro, NetworkMinner, and others. Students learn to create simple scripts using Python Scapy, and use these skills for detecting network sniffing attacks. This module will provide students with the skills to work with raw data and have a better understanding of the underlying technologies used in their networks.

Security Monitoring

Students learn to implement a customized security monitoring service using opensource software from scratch. We start with implementing a Syslog server in Linux using Rsyslog and integrate it with the famous ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) for quick insights of data. Students also learn popular tools Graylog, Splunk, and how to perform Threat Intelligence to enrich logs

Malware Analysis

This course teaches participants everything from malware analysis fundamentals to the use of the latest reverse engineering tools to combat malware. Participants learn to break down potential malware threats and create solutions to combat them. We teach how to protect against malware in the future, performing dynamic and static analysis on all major file types. We guide students on carving malicious executables from documents, to recognize common malware tactics, and to debug and disassemble malicious binaries.

Incident Response

Students will learn to identify potentially harmful events and the difference between an incident response policy and an incident response plan. Participants will learn the best practices to build an incident response plan: prepare, identify, containment, eradication, recovery, and lessons learned. They will also develop a strong foundation on how to handle a cybersecurity incident.

Security Automation

Students will learn the necessary skills to automate security tasks by using the Python programming language. For analysts and other security professionals, automation is a fundamental tool that helps them keep up with the volume of threats and individual activities to defend the enterprise. They will learn automated data analysis, policy validation, and customized scanning. Participants will also be trained on how to use Python to automate offensive activities as a penetration tester and better understand modern-day attacks.

EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (Certification)

The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification teaches students to systematically attempt to inspect network infrastructures (with the consent of its owner) to find security vulnerabilities which a malicious hacker could potentially exploit. This accredited course provides the advanced hacking tools and techniques used by hackers and information security professionals alike to break into an organization. As we put it, “To beat a hacker, you need to think like a hacker”.

EC-Council Certified Network Defender (Certification)

The Certified Network Defender (CND) trains entry-level network security administrators on defense-in-depth network security and the "protect, detect, and respond" approach to network security. Students gain a detailed understanding and the hands-on ability to act in real-life situations involving network defense.

Career Hacks

An important part of the CyberWarrior training program is also in the area of professional development and enhanced soft skills that will help a new cybersecurity professional realize success in their new workplace. In response to employer feedback and demand, our program focuses on soft/professional skill training that enhances a student’s “confidence” with their newfound skills. To expand the student’s overall core “competence” in cybersecurity, we embed skills such as critical thinking, communication, and presentation into our everyday curriculum. In each module, CWA introduces a skill through a company scenario/case study. In turn, the student uses the practical application of soft skills to reinforce and sustain both the technical and interpersonal learning.

Capstone Project I

Red Team exercise (Offense) – during this one-week capstone project, students use the hacking strategies they learned to assemble and execute an offensive plan on a given target. They develop a Penetration Test Report to present it to our board in an executive presentation. For evaluation purposes, we will bring CISOs and experts in the field to score the project outcome. The judges are hiring managers from our employer partners and other industry stakeholders.

Capstone Project II

Blue Team exercise (Defense) – during this one-week capstone project, students demonstrate they know how to handle defensive strategies from a technical standpoint. Subsequently they develop a post incident report and present it to our board as an executive presentation. For evaluation purposes, we will bring CISOs and experts in the field to score the project outcome. The judges are hiring managers from our employer partners and other industry stakeholders.
