Why become a cybersecurity professional? The protection of information is a critical function for all enterprises. Cybersecurity is a growing and rapidly changing field, and it is crucial that the central concepts that frame and define this increasingly pervasive field are understood by professionals who are involved and concerned with the security implications of Information Technologies. The CSX Fundamentals workshop is designed for this purpose, as well as to provide insight into the importance of cybersecurity, and the integral role of cybersecurity professionals.

This course will also cover four key areas of cybersecurity: 
1) cybersecurity architecture principles
2) security of networks, systems, applications and data
3) incident response
4) the security implications of the adoption of emerging technologies.

The course is designed as a foundational course, it will also prepare learners for the ISACA CSX Cybersecurity Fundamentals Exam.
