This capstone provides students the opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired from their introductory cybersecurity courses into a simulated project. Given a scenario, the students work independently to analyze the NBCC student network using the Harmonized Threat and Risk Assessment (HTRA) framework.
Instructors provide students with the following support documentation:
- -threat profile
-description of system architecture
-description of administrative, technical and physical security controls
-asset list and valuations
Using this documentation, as well as conducting technical vulnerability assessments, students apply the HTRA framework to better understand the flow of information, expected outcomes, and benefits.
