Cybersecurity – Secured Architectures

The security of information systems and network infrastructures is becoming more and more complicated nowadays.The deployed architectures use numerous software and hardware. To secure them properly, a large range of knowledge is required. The « Cybersecurity – Secured Architectures » course make you aware of vulnerabilities and action to perform for solution securization. The training methodology puts practice at the heart of learning to improve the acquisition of experience and knowledge. This training is based on the Best Practices recommended by official organisms (ANSSI, DGA-MI,NSA …)


Several hands-on exercises are performed through CYBELS Cyber Range platform, virtualizing information systems and reflecting realistic network architectures.
Each student has a pentester computer and their own IT System at their disposal on CYBELS Cyber Range.
He is able to access numerous equipment (PCs, routers, probes, firewalls, servers, proxies …).
The course also embeds feedback from Thales experience on Cybersecurity tools, devices, projects and solutions


After the course, the students know :

  • Secured architectures and solutions
  • Best practices for equipment configuration
  • Integrity control
  • Encryption solutions
  • Prevention solutions against intrusions
  • System and equipment hardening
  • The audit methodology and implementation
  • The essential rules for forensic investigation
