Cyber Security Technologist Standard Level 4

Those focused on the technical side work on areas such as security design & architecture, security testing, investigations & response. 


Design build & test a network (“Build a network”)

Design, build, test and troubleshoot a network incorporating more than one subnet with static and dynamic routes, that includes servers, hubs, switches, routers and user devices to a given design requirement without supervision. Provide evidence that the system meets the design requirement

Analysing a security case (“Make the security case”)

Analyse security requirements (functional and non-functional security requirements that may be presented in a security case) against other design requirements (e.g. usability, cost, size, weight, power, heat, supportability etc.), given for a given system or product. Identify conflicting requirements and propose, with reasoning, resolution through appropriate trade-offs

Structured and reasoned implementation of security in a network (“Build a secure network”)

Design and build a simple system in accordance with a simple security case. Provide evidence that the system has properly implemented the security controls required by the security case. The system could be either at the enterprise, network or application layer.

Select and configure relevant types of common security hardware and software components to implement a given security policy.

Design a system employing a crypto to meet defined security objectives. Develop and implement a key management plan for the given scenario/system.
