The recent media interest in cyber-attacks has raised the cyber sector’s profile. With significant investment from the big businesses and high salaries, many are now looking to the cyber world for their next role. With this heightened awareness and ever-changing challenges, the industry is expanding exponentially, and qualified professionals are in high demand. Unfortunately, a lack of basic cyber technologies knowledge puts an end to the dream of a cybersecurity career for many.
Operating systems are the basis of every IT system in the world. Enterprise end-users are typically Windows-based, and servers are generally Linux-based. The workstations are connected to these servers using TCP/IP protocols, and then there is the code developed by programmers. If you cannot understand all the links in this chain, it is impossible to talk cyber. All you can do is talk about cyber.
Accelerated Cyber Essentials is an intensive practical program that covers core technological domains and the basic knowledge required to kickstart a career in the cyber sector.

The course covers the following topics:
