Offensive Cyber Security operations introduces and exercises a complete range of reverse engineering techniques and attack patterns. Students will also learn and exercise analysis of systems based on minimal information. This is a complete course in cyber attacks which enables students on successful completion to identify and test systems for vulnerabilities without full knowledge or direct access.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:1. Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles underlying the identification and testing for vulnerabilities with limited information.
2. Analyze a system across all abstraction levels, from basic hardware to complex cloud architectures.
3. Run cyber attacks, tests and probes in a practical context.
4. Expand conventional attack patterns to work in new system and network architectures.
5. Communicate a cyber security vulnerability and potential paths of attack to a heterogenous team of professionals.
