This course provides the analytic tradecraft knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by intelligence analysts to fulfill the Office of the Director of National Intelligence ODNI education requirements and the Secretary SecAF/Chief of Staff CSAF of the Air Force Strategic Master Plan SMP objective ISR.6.
The purpose of this online course is for students to understand DoD efforts to field resilient systems through Trusted Systems and Networks TSN methodology. TSN terms, policies, and requirements are discussed in the context of successful fielding of resilient systems. Since a continued awareness of information, communications, and technology ICT is critical to instill and maintain a DoD workforce, supply chain threats and vulnerabilities affecting mission critical hardware H/W and software S/W are discussed.
This course addresses specific aspects of cybersecurity related to aircraft avionic systems, going beyond traditional information technology systems. The course presents a five step vulnerability assessment and mitigation process, in which students learn how to discover, analyze, and consider mitigation of vulnerabilities in an avionic system. Significant topic areas including key cyber terms, factors related to cyber vulnerabilities and attacks, and how avionic systems are vulnerable to attacks. Real world examples of commercial exploitations are discussed to highlight system susceptibilities. In addition, the course will describe the principles of cyber hardening and resiliency and their relationship to protecting avionics systems. The course presents different hardening and resiliency approaches, and which approaches are appropriate given adversary attack methodologies, challenges, processes, and available access paths.
SYS341 is an intensive 40-hour, instructor-led course that includes eight small-group exercises in which attendees apply principles learned in the class to a representative case study weapon system. SYS341 provides students assigned as Security Control Assessors and Representatives SCA/SCAR, weapon system program office Information System Security Managers ISSM, weapon system engineers, developmental and operational DT/OT testers and Mission Defense Team MDT members with the knowledge required to conduct architectural analyses to identify cybersecurity threats to weapon system designs and to assess and mitigate the cybersecurity vulnerabilities associated with those designs. The focus of SYS341 is on weapon systems in the sustainment phase of the system development lifecycle. Course Objective: 1. Know core requirements of cyber risk assessments and authorization packages 2. Assess the cybersecurity mission risk to a weapon system 3. Build an acceptable authorization package
This purpose of this workshop is to provide education and consultation in cyber-related topics for Air Force weapon systems such as systems security engineering, program protection, risk assessments, requirements, system analysis, and logistics. Content and duration will be adapted depending of the state of current events in the subject area and demand in target audience.
