How to Build Technical Cyber Capabilities

Technical cyber capabilities can be built using industry certifications in a complimentary manner. For example, below is a listing of the types of skills as shown on the left and generally associated industry certification on the right. By training for the corresponding certifications students will learn the necessary skills on the left hand side of the diagram. This model forms the basis upon which the training component discussed later is built. After completing the “General Security Skills” the candidate can pursue skills in penetration testing, incident handling, forensic skills and network defense.
