Courses for Higher Education

Cybersecurity for Higher Education

Colleges and universities are working diligently to create cybersecurity curricula to provide students with the high-quality and practical education needed to meet increasing workforce demands.




The greatest challenge faced by faculty and staff creating cybersecurity programs is identifying relevant textbooks and workbooks that are designed to align with academic calendars.  

Cybersecurity Courses Designed with Academic Programs in Mind

Phase2 Advantage understands the needs and challenges faced by higher education. We create and publish cybersecurity training materials in formats specifically designed for academic environments.

ADA Accessible Online Course Materials

All Phase2 Advantage online course materials are ADA accessible and score 95% – 100% on major learning management systems such as Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas, and LearnUpon.  

The 2023 Textbook Team is Assembled!

The first four academic textbooks of the 8-part Practical Cybersecurity Series have now been released and are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all major booksellers.  The 2021 releases include Network Defense and Investigations, Incident Investigations and Response, Cybersecurity Defense and Operations, and Disaster Response and Recovery.  Click the graphics below to purchase the textbooks on Amazon, or visit our Course Textbooks page to view more information.

Training Material Content and Structure

  • Course Organization: Each of our cybersecurity courses consists of 14 instructional chapters. This structure aligns well with both traditional brick-and-mortar 16-week semester systems and non-traditional online 8-week programs.
  • Knowledge Assessments: A knowledge assessment is located at the conclusion of each domain consisting of 20 multiple choice, true/false, and fill-in-the-blank questions. The answers to these questions have been provided in an Answer Key placed at the end of the Exam Prep Guide textbook. Each textbook contains 280 domain knowledge assessment questions.
  • Contact Hours: Each of our cybersecurity courses is 40-hours in length and includes lecture and lab content for students and industry professionals. The number of contact hours in each course aligns well with both traditional brick-and-mortar 16-week semester systems and non-traditional online 8-week programs.
  • Instructor Materials: Partner institutions that are using our course textbooks purchased through VitalSource or institutional bookstore will be provided corresponding lecture slides free of charge upon request. The PDF domain lecture slides are identical to those used in our cybersecurity courses.
