Note: Each week’s content pertains to a particular domain in the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEHv9) certification. In CYB/229 and CYB/231 the concepts tend to flow and build on each other from week to week. In CYB/233 the weeks tend to be more “stand alone” although some basic concept will be transferable week to week. In this course there is more attention to outlining and creating plans to secure or manage certain aspects of an organization’s technology (ex. wireless and mobile networks, the cloud, system defenses, etc.)
