Certification Track: Cybersecurity Course Progression

The cybersecurity courses offered by Phase2 Advantage have been designed to provide students with a body of knowledge that is cumulative in nature.  Each course in the track will provide the experiential knowledge and skills to successfully complete the next certification in the progression.  Following the certification track is not required but it is strongly encouraged.

Certified Cybercrime Investigation Specialist


Certified Cybercrime Investigation Specialist

Cybercrime investigators are a critical resource for any organization faced with criminal activities in their sphere of operation. The ability to identify and investigate malicious actors in both physical and digital environments requires unique training and knowledge that provides significant value to the government, law enforcement, and corporate entities which employ such professional investigators. As the volume and variety of cybercrime activity continues to escalate, highly skilled investigators will continue to be viewed as critical assets capable of providing defensive and competitive advantage to any industry in which they serve.

The field of cybercrime investigation is complex and multifaceted by nature and demands a wide range of skill sets be mastered by its practitioners. Criminal activity is becoming increasingly more sophisticated and negatively impacts every industry that exists. In an age of specialization, the cybercrime investigator must be able to view challenging situations through a lens which is simultaneously strategic, operational, and tactical to engage and defeat the threats posed by criminal activities.

The Certified Cybercrime Investigations Specialist course provides students with a strong foundation of introductory knowledge in topics such as Digital Crimes, Cyber Law, Investigative Methodologies, Evidence Collection, and considerations for conducting Dark Web investigations. Students will be prepared for the threat hunting, target modeling, and threat analysis concepts presented in the next course in the track.

There’s no need to out-fight anyone you can out-think.
