Hone Your Tactical Skills in
Identifying and Responding to Cyber Intrusions

Cyberattacks aren't going away. In fact, the risk of successful network intrusions is escalating as cyber criminals become more cunning and malicious. More than ever before, organizations must invest in frontline IT/cybersecurity professionals with highly honed cyber defense skills to fight back. And yet, nearly 600,000 cybersecurity positions went unfilled as of 2022.*

The Cyberattack Detection and Response Strategies program from NYU Tandon School of Engineering is designed to help participants fill this gap. Join us to gain hands-on experience by developing an incident response strategy, cyber resiliency plan, and incident management plan. You will come away with a strategic understanding of cyberattack detection and response strategies along with the cyber resilient techniques to make balanced, risk-based decisions for your organization.
