Cyber Deception

The need for awareness of cyber deception is growing. Cyber deception has been identified as one of the top 10 technologies businesses should be employing for cyber defence.

This 5-day course will provide students with hands-on experience of how to build, deploy and configure various cyber deception tools and technologies to protect computer networks and digital data. Students will use a combination of open source software, scripts and direct operating system configurations to create confusion, bait and trap intruders and unauthorised insiders.

The course has been designed for people with a beginner and intermediate level of technical IT skill and experience. Most of the course content is hands on activities. Students will configure and build cyber deceptions. Many of these will be using command line. The course will walk students through the basics of how to undertake each activity and provide them the means to complete the exercises. No academic or technical knowledge is assumed but the course can be challenging, in places if users are not familiar with basic IT and cyber security principles and tools.
