What are Micro-Credentials?
Micro-Credentials certify an individual’s achievements in specific skill sets and differ from traditional credentials, such as degrees or diplomas. They are shorter, personalized, and enables employment in specific roles. At the end of this program, you will receive an official document credential from Sheridan Continuing & Professional Studies.
Public and private sectors have been constant targets of cyber threats. In order to successfully safeguard their information systems, the organizations need to offensively and ethically hack their own security system to discover and exploit hidden vulnerabilities that might ultimately undermine their operations and reputations. With Sheridan's new Cyber Security - Offensive Micro-Credential, you can gain the skills needed to successfully mitigate those threats.
The ethical hacker is an individual who provides leadership in offensive security and supports organizations to establish safe and productive cyber environments by strategically and effectively attacking organization’s information systems to identify the cybersecurity breaches and propose the corresponding remediation before a malicious hacker to break into the system.
By the end of this program, students will be able to:
- Understand cybersecurity standards, policies, and procedures
- Evaluate cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management
- Employ cybersecurity management
- Explore basic fundamentals such as ethical hacking, scanning, system hacking, and more
- and more!
