Course Description

Business goals may include organizing the company to make it more efficient and profitable, or to redefine our target market to three major areas. One of our key business goals must be to reduce the risk of a data breach, the loss of intellectual property, the compromise of valuable research data, or the protection of employee and customer information. To be successful, we require a business focused cyber-risk management program that includes a complete understanding of business activities and the potential risk to the organization if a bad actor compromises one or more of these activities.


The Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) are the configuration standards created by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for Department of Defence systems. The STIGs contain technical guidance to lock down information, systems, and software, which might otherwise be vulnerable to a malicious computer attack by limiting account access to a system.

This is a course preparation for certification exam/procedure. The fee doesn't include exam fee. The exam date and application should be done by participant(s) themselves. Please contact us for details and further clarification.
