Where our Graduates are Working at
A Different Path to Cybersecurity
CyberWarrior Academy understands industry needs better than other training organizations. As cybersecurity practitioners, we live the realities and challenges of protecting sensitive data and critical infrastructure every day.
With our Cybersecurity Bootcamp, you will be trained to earn three globally recognized cybersecurity certifications Security+, Cloud+, and PenTest+.
We understand that strength lies in differences, not in similarities. Diversity is our core value and our training program effectively provides it throughout the Cybersecurity industry.
CyberWarrior Academy exclusively offers Career Ambassador Wednesday, expanding your Cybersecurity network and connecting you with industry leaders and practitioners.
As part of our commitment to your career, we are going to help you with resume building, interview prepping, and job placement assistance.
CyberWarrior Academy’s Cybersecurity Bootcamp Courses and Certificates
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
CompTIA PenTest+ (Certification)
The CompTIA PenTest+ 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”.
CompTIA Cloud+ (Certification)
CompTIA Cloud+ is the only performance-based IT certification that views cloud-based infrastructure services in the context of broader IT systems operations regardless of the platform. Migrating to the cloud presents opportunities to deploy, optimize, and protect mission critical applications and data storage. CompTIA Cloud+ validates the technical skills needed to secure these valuable assets.
The reality of operating multicloud environments poses new challenges. CompTIA Cloud+ is ideal for cloud engineers who need to have expertise across multiple products and systems.
CompTIA Cloud+ is the only cloud focused certification approved for DoD 8570.01-M, offering an infrastructure option for individuals who need to certify in IAM Level I, CSSP Analyst and CSSP Infrastructure Support roles.
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.
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.
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.
