IASAE Career Training Guide
IASAE Level I Training
As an Information Assurance System Architect and Engineer (IASAE) at the IASAE Level I, your primary responsibility will be to provide support to the development, integration, and evaluation of security architectures, systems, and technologies. This includes assessing and mitigating system vulnerabilities, designing and implementing security solutions, and monitoring and maintaining security systems. In order to perform these tasks effectively, you will need to have a strong foundational understanding of security architecture and engineering.
The IASAE Level I courses are designed to equip you with the necessary skills to perform your job responsibilities. The CompTIA Security+ Exam Prep course provides an introduction to the basics of network security and risk management. It covers topics such as network security protocols, encryption, and access control. Additionally, the Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) course teaches you about the principles and practices of implementing a zero-trust security model. This approach to security assumes that every user and device, whether inside or outside the network, is untrusted and requires continuous verification before being granted access to resources. Other courses in this level, such as the CFR - CyberSec First Responder Exam Prep, CND: Certified Network Defender, and CySA+ Exam Prep provide foundational knowledge on network defense, vulnerability assessments, and incident response. By completing these courses, you will have a solid foundation in security architecture and engineering, which will enable you to effectively support the development, integration, and evaluation of security architectures, systems, and technologies.
IASAE Level II Training
As an Information Assurance System Architect and Engineer (IASAE) at the IASAE Level II, you will be responsible for designing and developing security architectures and solutions for complex systems, networks, and applications. You will work on identifying and mitigating advanced persistent threats, as well as implementing and enforcing security policies and standards.
Our IASAE Level II courses are designed to provide you with advanced skills in security architecture and engineering. The CISSP Exam Prep course will teach you about the eight domains of information security and prepare you for the industry-standard CISSP certification. The CISM - Certified Information Security Manager course will teach you the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively manage information security programs. The CAP Exam Prep course will prepare you for the Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) certification, which is required for individuals involved in the authorization and accreditation of information systems. The CEH: Certified Ethical Hacker course will teach you how to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in systems and networks, and the PenTest+ Exam Prep course will prepare you for the CompTIA PenTest+ certification, which validates your skills in penetration testing and vulnerability assessment.
As an Information Assurance System Architect and Engineer (IASAE) at the IASAE Level III, you will be responsible for developing and implementing security policies, procedures, and technologies, as well as evaluating and ensuring compliance with security regulations and standards. You will work on designing and integrating security architectures, conducting risk assessments, and managing security projects.
Our IASAE Level III courses are designed to provide you with advanced skills in security architecture and engineering. The CCISO Exam Prep course will teach you the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage an organization's information security program. The ECSA: EC-Council Certified Security Analyst Exam Prep and CHFI: Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator courses will teach you advanced techniques for identifying and responding to security threats, conducting forensic investigations, and analyzing digital evidence. The CompTIA Cloud+ Exam Prep and CASP Exam Prep courses will teach you the fundamentals of cloud security and the skills needed to secure complex IT environments.
