IoT Security Course Overview
The Cisco Networking Academy's IoT Fundamentals curriculum provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the Internet of Things (IoT). It develops foundational skills using hands-on lab activities that stimulate the students in applying creative problem-solving and rapid prototyping in the interdisciplinary domain of electronics, networking, security, data analytics, and business. The student-centric approach translates into the student being able to ideate, design, prototype and present an IoT solution for an identified business or society need.
The IoT Security course teaches students “White Hat Hacker” skills to perform vulnerability and risk assessment, and research and recommend risk mitigation strategies for common security threats in IoT systems. These skills are highly relevant across IoT and other network architectures in order to discover cyber-security threats before the bad actors do.
There are 4 instructor-led courses in the IoT Fundamentals curriculum: Connecting Things, IoT Security, Big Data & Analytics and Hackathon Playbook. Upon completion of each course, the end-of-course survey, and the end-of-course assessment, the student will receive a Certificate of Completion.
