Determine the minimum network capacity of planned networks to meet network requirements

Analyse network performance and troubleshoot typical problems in networks

Identify the key characteristics of a new network service and develop estimates of the expected traffic intensity and traffic load that the network must support

Design, build, test, configure and optimise a distributed network (more than 1 sub- net), including switches, routers and firewalls to meet given requirements

Identify and evaluate network security risks and incorporate appropriate security products and processes into network designs to increase security, resilience and dependability

Conduct a range of cyber security audit activities to demonstrate security control effectiveness

Core Skills

Develop and apply modelling and analysis techniques to describe business problem scenarios and to help select solutions using a range of industry standard analysis techniques

Develop a clear, complete, unambiguous and testable requirements specification, including functional, non- functional, data, user interface and security requirements

Elicit and prioritise business requirements for a digital technology system using ‘industry best practice’ methods

Model the ‘as is’ and future state for a business process using industry standard approaches and notation

Use ‘industry’ standard tools to facilitate the analysis, documentation and traceability of requirements

Course Details:

A Cyber Security Analyst is responsible for the implementation, maintenance and support of the security controls that protect an organisation’s systems and data assets from threats and hazards.

They ensure that security technologies and practices are operating in accordance with the organisation’s policies and standards to provide continued protection. They require a broad understanding of network infrastructure, software and data to identify where threat and hazard can occur. They are responsible for performing periodic vulnerability assessments to evaluate the organisation’s ongoing security posture and will provide visibility to management of the main risks and control status on an ongoing basis. They respond to security incidents and implement resolution activities across the organisation.
