Cybersecurity Data Science training

This hands-on, comprehensive skill path covers everything from the fundamentals of cybersecurity data science to the state of the art. Among many other practical lessons, you will be setting up a cybersecurity lab, constructing classifiers to detect malware, utilizing deep learning technology and even hacking security systems with the help of machine learning — all taught by an award-winning expert in the field of cybersecurity data science.

Learning path components

Cybersecurity Data Science Project
Practice Exam
Cybersecurity Data Science Project

Cybersecurity Data Science Project

In this project, you’ll analyze a malware sample using classifiers provided in the project files — or with ones you build yourself. You’ll begin by creating a virtual machine for the project and exporting its image in the OVA format, then extract the list of imports and identify the most commons 4-grams in the binary sequence in the Jigsaw ransomware sample. You’ll recognize images created with deepfakes and determine text in a large number of CAPTCHA images.
