Introduction to Cybercrime Prevention (CCP) Certificate Program

Certificate Description:

This Certificate program will provide learners with an introduction to general network and system security measures, including traditional network infrastructure, as well as using cloud computing services. The program also introduces three primary types of cybercrime attack vectors – business disruption, insider threat, and social engineering. Learners who successfully complete the certificate program should be able to implement basic security control measures to prevent or protect against most common types of cybercrime attacks, and to help recover business operations after an attack. The course is estimated to take approximately 40 hours to complete; however, some Learners may work at a faster or slower pace, so the actual duration may vary.

Course 1 - Introduction to Network and System Security (CCP-101)

Instructor: Alan Watkins

Course Description: In this course, you will learn about basic network infrastructure and using layered security measures to create a minimum level of protection. In addition, you will be introduced to security for mobile devices and cloud computing services, and how to focus security on protecting your data. Finally, you will have an overview of some common security standards, some of which are used for regulatory compliance.

Course 2 - Introduction to Business Disruption Attacks (CCP-102)

Instructor: Alan Watkins

Course Description: In this course, you will learn about the two most common types of cyber-attacks that cause a disruption of business operations – Denial of Service (DoS) or Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and Ransomware. You will learn some basic security measures to help protect against each of these attacks, and how to be prepared to recover from such attacks.

Course 3 - Introduction to Insider Threats (CCP-103)

Instructor: Alan Watkins

Course Description: In this course, you will learn about some common types of insider threats, including intentional and accidental actions of employees, along with some business practices and technical countermeasures to help prevent and protect against an insider attack. You will also learn how an effective employee cybersecurity awareness program can help deter an insider attack with proper methods of reporting suspicious activities, and then some considerations for responding to and recovering from an insider attack.

Course 4 - Introduction to Social Engineering (CCP-104)

Instructor: Alan Watkins

Course Description: In this course, you will learn what social engineering means, the methods, tactics, and techniques used by cyber criminals to conduct social engineering attacks, and how to recognize a potential social engineering attack, specifically phishing and spear-phishing. You will also learn that the best defense against social engineering is employee awareness and how to conduct simulated social engineering attacks as part of employee training.
