November 21, 2013, 10:16 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Ed4Online is pleased to announce a brand new Cybersecurity course, dedicated to outlining the relevant, growing issue of cyber-terrorism and related IT risk management practices. The course is now available through the company's website as part of its professional development series.
Ed4Online's Cybersecurity course provides a comprehensive, well-rounded framework of current practices aimed at assuring information security in the digital age. Through the course, students will learn how the various roles and functions within Cybersecurity practice can be combined and leveraged to produce security within an organization. Topics of the course include information security, IT risk management and proper digital data management.
What makes Ed4Online's Cybersecurity course unique is its structured material. Course concepts are not presented as stagnant theory, but instead, they are interwoven in a real world adventure story. This approach urges students to consider real-world examples, assisting them in visualizing the application of the content to relevant issues that they will face in their professional life. The content of the course is based on the Department of Homeland Security's Essential Body of Knowledge (EBK) for IT Security.
“Our Cybersecurity course addresses some of the fastest growing concerns about privacy and safety when it comes to digital information,” said Dr. Tricia Seymour, Chief Operating Officer for Ed4Online. “The demand for IT professionals and other digital operators to have a working knowledge and understanding of best practices involving online information security is becoming commonplace. We're happy to be able to assist professionals in expanding their knowledge and capabilities in this way.”
In a recent statement from James Comey, current Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), private-sector companies are the primary victims of cyber-intrusions and possess the information, the expertise and the knowledge to address cyber-intrusions. In offering its new Cybersecurity course, Ed4Online aims to address this crucial aspect of IT employment and provide continuing education for those in a position to combat cyber-terrorism.
