Security Convergence: Principles of Information Security and Digital Forensics

Bridge the communication gap between Physical Security and Information Security. sec301

Security convergence is a concerted and results-oriented effort to work together.  

As physical security and information security boundaries have become increasingly blurred many organizations are experiencing challenges with how to effectively and efficiently manage security.

A little technical training will go a long way toward team building, improving skill sets, and communicating effectively with IT and IS departments.

If you are new to the field of information security and digital forensics, this course is for you!

This course is a fast way to get up to speed and update your skills.  

This is a comprehensive entry level course that covers the basic common body of knowledge of information security.  

Additionally, as a primer for getting started in computer forensics, this course covers basic principles of digital forensics and cloud computing forensics.

This course aligns with the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), and ISACA’s CyberSecurity Fundamentals Certificate exam objectives.

Course content includes:

  • Information Security Principles
  • Access Control
  • Cryptography and Public Key Infrastructure
  • Networking Principles - OSI and TCP/IP
  • Network Security
  • Application Security
  • Physical Security power management, environmental and emanation security
  • Digital Forensics - Key Technical Concepts
  • "Cloud Computing" Forensic Principles



  • One strategic security mission with consistent goals.
  • Improved communication, coordination, and investigations between Physical Security and Information Security departments.
  • Improve compliance with security policies, procedures and regulatory and legal responsibilities.
  • Better alignment with BCP/DRPs.
  • Training nurtures and re-enforces your in-house security culture.


This course is the recommended pre-requsiste for the "Advanced Computer Forensic Investigation "  three day "hands-on" course.
