Certificate Program:
Fundamentals of Cybersecurity

Program Overview:

Texas A&M University at Qatar and the Executive Education Center at Hamad Bin Khalifa University are pleased to announce the launch of the Fundamentals of Cybersecurity certificate program.

The program will cover topics related to the fundamental concepts behind modern cryptographic systems and how they can be employed to secure data and private communications. It will also introduce attendees to the collection and analysis of open-source and publicly available information, white hacking techniques for stealth collection, methodologies for the evaluation and validation of sources of open and publicly available information, as well as OSINT best practices.

In addition, this program will demonstrate how to conduct penetration testing and forensic investigations, allowing users and administrators to configure computers to stop cyber-attacks, or at least minimize their negative impact. It will also cover the basics of wireless networks and show principal attacks on a wireless network involving the three components of the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility (CIA) triads. The understanding of this material will allow the user or administrator to build countermeasures to protect the wireless network.

Participants will receive a certificate in Fundamentals of Cybersecurity after the completion of all four modules, and a Certificate of Completion will also be presented to attendees at the end of each individual module.

Upcoming Courses

Financial and Economic Decision Making for Engineers and Managers
9-10 May 2018 ($1,250) 

Course Overview:
The engineering infrastructure projects such modern highways, railroads, and waterways world-wide need sound systematic and well-grounded financial methodologies to predict, estimate, and analysis their initial capital investment, financial implications, and life cycle costs. When economic decisions are made, the decision makers typically generate reliable data on variety of envisioned projects including their life cycle costs, priority and importance to the end users, and financial constraints associated with these projects.
Selection of an optimal alternative requires consideration of both technical performance and long-term and short-term costs to ensure its optimum return on the invested capital. Often there are other competing needs for funds, so engineers and managers must be able advance their case appropriately.
Financial and Economic Decision Making deals with objective methods that enable decision-makers to evaluate and compare alternatives using sound analytical methods.

Who Should Attend:
This course will be highly beneficial for:
- Plant and General Managers
- Supply and Logistics Managers
- General Managers and Associate Managers
- Facility Managers
- Directors and Associate Directors of divisions or units in organizations
- Technical and Information Systems managers
