Advanced Cybersecurity for Institute Teachers

The objective of this course is to provide a global view of the different aspects that cybersecurity includes in order to identify them and learn to use the most appropriate tools in each of them:

  • Ethical hacking: Computer networks are susceptible to receiving computer attacks. Periodic network audits provide very important information about the level of security of the different assets available. We will see how security audits should be carried out and we will know the different tools that can help us carry them out.
  • Prevention and response: Bring the student to detection, prevention and response techniques for computer attacks. Currently, systems generate a large amount of data, being necessary to create environments that allow centralizing information to optimize the analysis. The aspects related to the centralization and management of security events will be worked on in order to proactively detect possible attacks.
  • Computer forensics: The detection, preservation and investigation of electronic evidence or evidence that can be used to defend the company against possible criminal liability is known as "computer forensics". We will try to understand the legal and technical aspects necessary to carry out a forensic analysis in a correct way and we will learn to obtain evidence in different working environments through a correct selection of tools.
  • Security in the development of applications: More than 80% of attacks on computer systems are made using vulnerabilities of web applications. It is therefore essential that developers have security knowledge and that this knowledge is integrated into the day to day of their work.

The course includes several guided practical exercises that help to consolidate the concepts presented during the sessions.

Previous knowledge of TCP / IP Networks is required as well as the use of Windows and Linux systems at an advanced user level.
