IT 290 Cybersecurity Lab

This course is a hands-on lab where students will setup and harden different systems (Windows and Linux) and explore different security monitoring solutions (IDS/IPS). The projects will build on the other Cybersecurity courses by providing actual tasks to practice attacking and defending other student environments within a controlled lab environment. Students will demonstrate how to configure, harden, and monitor systems as well as document, and remediate attacks. They will also demonstrate how to map a network, identify vulnerabilities and attempt to exploit those vulnerabilities.
