Our courses are designed for the perspective of the cybersecurity professional and what you need in order to take knowledge back to the workplace. Additionally, because Space Coast Cyber has specialized knowledge in tangential fields, many courses have a cross-disciplinary aspect to them that give the learner a bigger picture view of the subject matter.
Scroll below to review all our available courses.
Certified CMMC Professional (CCP)
The CCP is the most comprehensive training course currently available for CMMC. This course prepares the student to become a member of a CMMC assessment team and it is the steppingstone toward becoming a CMMC Lead Assessor. However, this course isn't just for assessors, anyone can take this course to get a better understanding of CMMC requirements and the CMMC assessment process. From our perspective, the only difference between a self-assessment and an assessment by a C3PAO is the level of independence of the assessor. The assessment procedures used should be the same by either an internal or external assessor.
Space Coast Cyber is an authorized CMMC Licensed Training Provider using CMMC-AB Approved Training Material (CATM), which means taking this course with us will complete one of the pre-requisite steps required to be able to take the CCP exam.
Dr. Baldwin is one of the first 20 people to achieve both CMMC Provisional Assessor and CMMC Provisional Instructor, and he had the privilege to be one of the first instructors to deliver the CCP training materials to students.
Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA)
This course is currently in development. Stay tuned.
CCA builds upon CCP and covers CMMC Level 2 in more detail. A CCA certification is required to become a Lead Assessor for CMMC.
Systems Security Engineering (SSE)
This course focuses on the discipline of Systems Security Engineering. Many people transition into cybersecurity from a variety of fields, so fundamental engineering concepts like the system development lifecycle, verification and validation, eliciting requirements from stakeholders, deriving system requirements from regulations, tailoring requirements to system components, building a reference architecture, and ensuring requirements traceability may be brand new concepts for them.
At its core, systems engineering is a process to help transform ideas into capabilities. As system security engineers, we want to make sure those capabilities are secure, protect sensitive information, and that they are resilient enough to withstand cyber threats so organizations are able to achieve their mission and goals.
Whether you are new to the cybersecurity field or have been around for a while, this course provides information that is highly beneficial to anyone who may have an interest in learning about systems engineering.
Dr. Baldwin has spent over a decade as a systems security engineer and has been a director and senior manager leading teams of systems security engineers providing services to secure critical information for organizations.
Project Management Essentials for Cybersecurity Professionals
The focus of this course is to learn how to organize tasks and then manage them to completion in a structured manner for traceability, specifically designed for cybersecurity professionals. Understanding project management basics, even if you do not plan to be a project manager, will help you advance in your career. In this course, you will understand how to take requirements and designs and break down monolithic tasks into manageable pieces that can show progress and burndown to assist in reporting status to management. You will also learn how to integrate security tasks into agile processes and take security controls and write them into user stories for developers to implement.
Dr. Baldwin has served as a program manager on contracts to the federal government and is a certified Project Management Professional through the Project Management Institute. He has also worked with Agile methodology since 2010 and is a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) through the Scrum Alliance.
