Cyber Analyst Academy Foundation Pathway Bundle


Our hands-on Cyber Analyst Academy is a purposeful pathway for new security analysts, but also provides a platform for re-skilling existing IT teams.


The academy starts at a foundation level and accelerates at a pace designed to increase both knowledge and confidence of the individual at a sustainable rate.


We have designed this academy, so delegates can attend over any time period, so that it meets individual and organisational requirements. Whether that is over 10 weeks or 18 months. Delegates can also attend the entire academy or choose to join one or more of the three Cyber Analyst pathways: Foundation Pathway; Investigator Pathway; Responder Pathway.


The course package below is for the Foundation Pathway.

What's Included

The Foundation Pathway consists of 5 courses as follows:


Network Security Foundation - 3 days

Organisations must consider securing their systems and platforms that are linked across enterprise-wide and virtual private networks, notwithstanding connect mobile users. In this course, delegates will learn about the fundamental security concepts, security policy management and end-to-end network security. This course helps delegates to analyse the risks to networks and the appropriate countermeasures (firewalls and intrusion detection) to reduce exposure to network attacks and malicious software.

This course provides the essential network security foundation training needed to address the cyber threat lifecycle.


IT Security Fundamentals - 5 days

This 5-day instructor-led course serves as an in depth introduction to the field of Information Security - it is not aligned to a specific examination or vendor accreditation and therefore the content will be updated on a regular basis.

This course is designed for IT professionals and technical managers who want to understand key IT security issues and how best to address them. The course will also be of benefit to IT systems analysts, designers and software developers.

The course allows delegate extensive hands-on experience with a variety of security software and techniques. The content is vendor-agnostic and focuses on general information security.


CyberSec First Responder - 5 days

This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. The course introduces strategies, frameworks, methodologies, and tools to manage cyber security risks, identify various types of common threats, design and operate secure computing and networking environments, assess and audit the organization's security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. The course also covers closely related information assurance topics such as auditing and forensics to provide a sound basis for a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defence.


Delegates will be provided with a CyberSec First Responder PearsonVue exam voucher upon successful completion of the five-day course.


Cyber Defender Foundation (CTF Programme Assessment) - 2 days

The cyber defender foundation capture the flag (CTF) has been designed to test and teach those responsible for detecting and defending an organisation against a cyber-attack. The  cyber lab offers a safe environment for IT and security teams to develop their cyber defence skills and put to them to the test against the clock.


This is not for your elite 'hackathon# champions, this foundation CTF provides a learning platform for your multi-discipline technical teams to work together collaborating as they would do in a real cyber-attack. During the event challenges are released which requires the participants to navigate through systems, seeking vulnerabilities, exploiting, decrypting, whatever it takes to find the flag. Talented individuals working in isolation can't defend an organisation successfully. Learn the necessary cyber defence 'trade craft' skills, in our state of the art cyber lab, a fully immersive learning experience, harnessing the talent within your teams to solve the challenges together before you have to do it for real.
