Program Outline

This program includes seven courses, hands-on skill development, and guided projects. Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed in collaboration with industry experts to guarantee the acquisition of both foundational knowledge and practical skills essential for meeting employer demands. Students will learn what “good” looks like and how to deliver architectural specification that can then be implemented by the organization. Focus on leveraging existing frameworks, understanding the technology options available and development of real-world solutions will prepare students for taking their career to the next level. 

Practical, Hands-On Learning

Through immersive simulations and real-world scenarios, you’ll tackle challenges that mirror those found in actual workplace environments. The program incorporates applied exercises, virtual labs, case studies, and projects that mirror industry challenges allowing you to develop tangible skills that are immediately applicable in your careers. 

Phase I
Immersive Learning

Principles of Security Architecture

This course focuses on the basic principles of cyber security architecture. It covers topics such as defense in depth, the various layers of an appropriate security architecture, and the importance of cohesive security architecture.  Participants will gain an understanding of what the end state should look based on industry best practices and typical security architectural lifecycles. 

Business Requirements & Cybersecurity Frameworks

This course will introduce participants to the key stakeholders for cybersecurity architect services within various organizations and key consumers of security architecture. Commonly accepted cyber security frameworks and standards will be introduced, and participants will learn how to adopt various components of these standards within their architecture designs. 

Cybersecurity Technologies

This course will provide the participant with an understanding of the various defensive cyber security technologies available in the marketplace today. Participants will examine various vendor agnostic technology options for use in cybersecurity architecture.  Participants will learn how to effectively select an appropriate technology stack and how integrated and standalone solutions may be leveraged.  

Phase II
Personalized Mentor-Guided Learning

Network Security & Cloud Deployments

This course will prepare participants to effectively design secure network infrastructures to meet various stakeholder requirements. Participants will learn how to evaluate existing network architectures for their cybersecurity posture. Challenges of handling cyber security in a cloud environment will also be introduced enabling participants to make key design decisions when dealing with organizations' cloud usage. 

Endpoint Security

This course focuses on managing cybersecurity at the endpoint. The endpoints in this course include but not limited to the end user workstations/laptops, mobile devices, IoT, and identity and access management. Students will gain an understanding of the nuances of end point security in various industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, finance, retail, and others. 

Data & Application Security

This course will introduce students to various architectural approaches focused on data protection. Students will gain an understanding of how security control requirements follow the data and how to develop and document the appropriate controls.  The second part of this course will shift focus to the security architect’s role with regards to protecting the applications that with touch the data. 

Phase III
Experiential Learning

This phase involves completing a project integrating all the knowledge accumulated through the previous courses and serves as a capstone for the Cybersecurity Architecture program. The project is a practical demonstration on best practices for subject matter covered over the courses. Students may alternatively develop a project on a topic of interest pertaining to cybersecurity architecture such as architecture assessments of an organization, merger and acquisition integration, cloud migration of existing information system, setting up a new information system platform or similar project.
