What is the CIA Triad?

The CIA Triad is an industry term that stands for confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The triad forms the basis of an organization’s security framework and risk management practices: the three principles should function as foundational objectives for security plans.

Confidentiality refers to a company or organization’s ability to keep its customers’ data private.
Integrity is about ensuring that data hasn’t been tampered with, and availability refers to a customer having reliable access to their information.

When forming a security plan, an organization should be able to deliver on all three principles. In the event of a cyberattack, one of these three principles has likely been violated. Cybersecurity specialists lean on the triad to help develop a strong network and computer security system to protect against cybercrime and attacks.

What are cyberattacks?

Unfortunately, there are many different types of cybercrimes that plague the digital realm: phishing, malware, and man-in-the-middle (MitM) are a few common cyber threats to networks and operating systems. Phishing aims to steal user data, from credit card numbers to login credentials.

Malware is also known as a virus but can refer to any malicious software. Malware is a threat because it can obtain sensitive information by transmitting data from a personal or private hard drive, among other nefarious activities.

Man-in-the-middle refers to digital eavesdropping. This can often happen on public WiFi networks, which is why it’s important to avoid accessing private data on public networks.

What are the options after completing the free intro to cybersecurity?

After completing the Free Intro to Cybersecurity, prospective students can apply for the part-time or full-time cybersecurity bootcamp at Eleven Fifty. While the free online course isn’t required for new students, it’s recommended because it will help you determine if a career in the cybersecurity industry is right for you.

What skills will I walk away with?

Upon completion of your cybersecurity bootcamp, you’ll walk away with in-depth knowledge of different types of cyberattacks, how they occur, and how to stop them. Your digital forensics and incident response coursework paired with your time practicing in the cyber range will give you real-world experience, allowing you to step into a cybersecurity career as a security analyst with confidence.

What is taught in this cybersecurity course?

Eleven Fifty’s cybersecurity programs are designed to prepare students to conduct, monitor, and stop cyberattacks. While universities and colleges offer cybersecurity degree programs including bachelor’s degrees or master’s degrees (MSc), you can learn more than enough to start your career in a condensed time frame with Eleven Fifty’s bootcamps.

The first 10 weeks of the part-time course will be focused on learning the basics of information security and working toward the CompTIA Network+ certification. The next 10 weeks will be a deep dive into the technical side of cybersecurity to get you ready to step into the cyber range, which provides hands-on, real-world experience in preventing, monitoring, and stopping cyberattacks.

The final month of your part-time course will give you an opportunity to work with a team to complete more complex information security exercises. The goal is to help you think more like an attacker so you can understand more about how cyberattacks are carried out in both networks and computer systems. You’ll also learn about the various career paths open to you in information technology as a cybersecurity professional.

What is the average salary of an entry-level Cybersecurity Analyst?

The average salary of an entry-level cybersecurity analyst is around $65k, but factors such a location can play a part in salary as well. Many experienced cybersecurity analysts make well into six figures.

What are job positions I might get after I graduate from Eleven Fifty’s Cybersecurity Immersive course?

Job positions targeted for this course could be an information security analyst, a SOC analyst, incident response analyst, or working on a red team (penetration testing) for the offensive security side of things.

What certifications can I earn in the Cybersecurity courses?

Upon passing your tests, you will receive two globally recognized certifications: CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+.

You will also receive a security analyst certificate for completing training on the cyber range as well as a graduation Red Badge from Eleven Fifty Academy.

Do I need to bring my own computer to the cybersecurity course?

Yes, students will need their own computer.

What exactly is a cyber range?

The Eleven Fifty Academy cyber range gives you the opportunity to put your basic security knowledge developed in the first stage of courses and put it to use. This range gives you hands on experiences conducting, preventing, identifying, and stopping cyberattacks in a real computer environment.

Does the cybersecurity course require any coding experience?

No, students are not required to have any coding experience. However, any technical knowledge that students enter the class with will certainly give a leg up during the bootcamp.
