Cybersecurity course carries savings for staff, students, and alumni

A course from Continuing Education will prepare its students to mitigate threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities in cyberspace.

Instructor Ikjot Saini is a co-director of the SHIELD Automotive Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence. She says the course will provide necessary skills and competencies to people in any field.

“It’s all about the mindset,” she says. “You will be trained to think like a cybersecurity professional and learn what to do if you encounter a risk.”

The class will engage learners in live interactive classes to understand threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities, the architecture and design of a system, effective implementation of security solutions, incident response and governance, and risk and compliance.

“You will always need to keep retraining and reskilling, since the industry is consistently changing,” Dr. Saini notes. “There are so many domains in security: the design, development, and implementation are the core three parts of it and our course content targets these topics.”

Cybersecurity begins May 1 and runs Saturday mornings through Aug. 7 to provide 48 hours of online, live instruction over 12 weeks. Learn more on the course website.
