ECSM20-Cyber Essentials-EN

Global Academy





This course is being made available in the context of the European Cyber Security Awareness Month initiative. The “Cybersecurity Essentials” course develops foundational understanding of cybersecurity and how it relates to information and network security.


Business is being redefined by the changes of today and the uncertainties of tomorrow. These factors are accelerating digital transformation trends that were already in motion. Work is now officially an activity and not a place. Regardless of the type of business, networking and security teams need to secure users wherever they work, on any device so they can safely connect to their network and teammates.


The course introduces students to characteristics of cybercrime, security principles, technologies, and procedures to defend networks. Through interactive, multimedia content, lab activities, and multi-industry case studies, students build technical and professional skills to pursue careers in cybersecurity.


Learn procedures to implement data confidentiality, integrity, availability and security controls.


Understand security principles and how to develop security policies that comply with cybersecurity laws.


Apply skills through practice, using labs and Cisco Packet Tracer activities.


Get immediate feedback on your work through built-in quizzes and tests.


Connect with the global Cisco Networking Academy community.
