Promoting Community Cyber Security - AWR-135 

The Promoting Community Cybersecurity (PCCS) course is designed to give participants an introduction to cybersecurity topics, methods, and processes, and to explore organizational responsibilities in the context of the community, state and nation. The course provides an overview of the steps taken within organizations to protect their cyber resources. The course also looks at that protection within the context of the broader community. Participants will explore the impact of the interconnections and dependencies introduced by information technology. Basic concepts of of cybersecurity, network connectivity, threats, types of attacks, and the structure of the Community Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CCSMM) will be discussed. The basic characteristics of communities and organizations that exhibit good cybersecurity are examined through the use of case studies within the context of each CCSMM dimension. In addition, the interrelationships between the dimensions of the CCSMM and the dependency on each dimension for good cybersecurity are also discussed.

  • Recognize various types of cyber threats and attacks.
