As our nation’s critical infrastructure grows more reliant on information technologies, it also becomes more exposed to cyber-attacks, both foreign and domestic. These attacks can threaten our nation’s economy, public works, communication systems, computer networks, and all other critical infrastructure. To counter this threat, the Criminal Justice Institute’s Cybersecurity Defense Initiative (CDI) has developed courses delivered at no cost to technical personnel working within our nation’s critical infrastructure. These courses utilize a blended learning approach that balances classroom lecture, hands-on laboratory exercises, and supplemental material.

This CPD course is designed for technical personnel who monitor and protect our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure, is a hands-on computer lab that will simulate advanced attack vectors, sequential and escalating attack steps, and hands-on attack execution. Participants will learn penetration testing skills, defense analysis techniques, and real-time response and threat mitigation steps.

CPD is offered free-of-charge to technical personnel who work for agencies or organizations considered as a part of our nation’s critical infrastructure.
