Python For Cyber Security

Date: TBA

Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm

Duration: 9 Days

Course Overview

A cyber practitioner who does not know programming, will face limitations in his/her job, be highly dependent on ready-made solutions and will mostly work manually. Therefore, his/her contribution and career progression at the organisation will be limited We believe every cyber practitioner needs to knowledge on programming.

This course helps beginners take the first step into the cyber workforce, and will equip them with basic programming skills. The course is suitable for individuals with little to no Python programming experience as it provides the requisite Python knowledge for cybersecurity and other advanced cyber courses.

Learning Outcomes

This course is designed for the cybersecurity analysts who will use Python to:

  • Write automations and collect relevant data from all over the network (logs, port scanning, metadata, etc.).
  • Independently develop tools to process, index and analyze artifacts to detect and flag-out potential attacks and to allow a convenient way of investigating relevant data.
  • Simulate attacks and look for possible weaknesses in the network.

Insight from Instructor

“Python is the main programming language used in many cyber security tools and libraries. Having a good grasp of python with a cyber security perspective will prepare you well for subsequent advanced cyber courses.

Having the skills to create and develop your scripts and programs is a powerful tool, allowing you to automate your work, do things faster and more accurate, open more opportunities for you, and help you to perform better in your job and raise the security level of your organization.

In this module, participants will gain Python programming skills, starting from the basic commands, variables, flow control, loops, and data structures, how to test and debug their code, important skills as Objects, Regex, Modules, Exceptions, how to understand new libraries and functions independently and practice developing several projects which combines different disciplines into one. Python is also a vital tool for the following courses.”
