Course Description:

 

This course provides students with a technical overview of current Cyber Operations issues in DoD. The course content deals with topics that are of primary interest to the Department of Defense personnel and its contractors who will be carrying much of the responsibility for actual implementation of cyber-related systems.
The subject matter covered will be diverse and will cover the following: Class #1: Cyber Operations on Data Center Clouds; Class #2: Virtualization and Legacy Systems; Class #3: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure in Cyber Operations; Class #4: Natural Language Processing; Class #5: Data and Storage Management; Class #6: Open Source Software; Class #7: Collaboration in Cyber Operations.
There will be more than 75 slides shown in every class. This material will be provided a week ahead of the Class so that students can be prepared to ask questions about topics that will be covered. Students will be also able to annotate the presentation material with a real-time on-line “chat” commentary.
Course Requirements:
Students must have at least four years of prior direct experience working with information technologies.  Students will have to reply briefly, in writing, to up to two quizzes on the topics covered in each of the courses.  Students unable to attend a class at the scheduled time will receive access to copies of the course material and to the recording of the class for viewing prior to the next session.
Every student’s desktop must come equipped with a camera. During class discussion the student’s personal picture will appear on the screen.
Students will see on their desktops the instructor’s applications (usually power point slides), white board and space for write-in comments. When a student has a question they can click on their name to prompt the instructor for an responses.
Course Benefits:
Students will acquire an understanding of how the latest information technologies apply to cyber operations.  Emphasis will be placed on the most recent technological developments, such as cloud computing, defensive countermeasures, zero-day vulnerabilities, cyber threats and the available technological means to protect the DoD. It will not cover any material that can be found in existing textbooks but will concentrate on the most recent developments, including reviews of major cyber attacks as they occur.
This course can be seen as a career-enhancement for personnel seeking added skills to qualify for positions that are now opening in cyber operations.
