Course Description

Cyber Security is the combination of processes, practices, and technologies designed to protect networks, computers, programs, data and information from attack, damage or unauthorised access.

Brighter Connect’s Cyber Security Certification Course will help you in learning about the basic concepts of Cyber Security along with the methodologies that must be practised ensuring information security of an organisation. Starting from the Ground level Security Essentials, this course will lead you through Cryptography, Computer Networks & Security, Application Security, Data & Endpoint Security, idAM (Identity & Access Management), Cloud Security, Cyber-Attacks and various security practices for businesses.

Cyber Security is the gathering of advances that procedures and practices expected to ensure systems, PCs, projects and information from assault, harm or unapproved get to. In a processing setting, security incorporates both Cyber Security and physical security, it is imperative since cyber attackers can without much of a stretch take and obliterate the profoundly grouped data of governments, defence offices and banks for which the results are huge so it is essential to have an appropriate innovation which an avoid digital wrongdoings.

  • This course is designed to cover a holistic & a wide variety of foundational topics of the Cyber Security domain which will be helpful to lead freshers as well as IT professional having 1 to 2 years of experience, into the next level of choice such as ethical hacking/ audit & compliance / GRC/ Security Architecture and so on
  • This course focuses mainly on the basics concepts of Cyber Security
  • In this course, we are going to deal with Ground level security essentials cryptography, computer networks & security, application security, data & endpoint security, idAM (identity & access management), cloud security, cyber-attacks and various security practices for businesses
  • This course will be your first step towards learning Cyber Security

Anyone having the zeal to learn innovative technologies can take up this course. Especially, students and professionals aspiring to make a career in the Cyber Security technology. However, Cyber Security Certification Course is best suited for the below mentioned profiles:-

  • Networking Professionals
  • Linux Administrators

There are no prerequisites for Brighter Connect's Cyber Security certification course. Basic knowledge of networking and cloud will be beneficial.


The requirement for doing practicals on the Cyber Security course is a system with Intel i3 processor or above, minimum 8GB RAM and 20 GB HDD Storage

The following is the problem statement of the certification project as part of this Cybersecurity Certification training:

John is a security administrator with ABC Inc. He was trying to log in on the system used by one of the employees who was terminated recently. The employee had changed the system admin password before leaving the organization. John has a task to get the admin access back by resetting the password. John has to change the password without using any third-party tool due to organization’s security policy. Once the password is changed, he has to make sure that the same issue doesn’t occur again. He also enhances the system security as follows:

Anti-Malware: He finds out that the earlier user has installed some malicious tools on the system. Using a good antivirus, he finds out malware and clean the system

System Hardening: To enhance the security he hardens the system by enabling/disabling some of the services on the computer

Firewall: John modifies some rules of the firewall to block some type of traffic

Cryptography: He also creates a hidden encrypted volume to store confidential data on the computer. He uses the existing features of the system to create the encrypted volume

Virtual Private Network: John wants the user of the system to access websites using VPN

The following Case studies will be a part of this course:

Case Study 1:

Statement: Data Encryption: - Encrypt and decrypt a file using Advanced Encryption Package.

Case Study 2:
