    The CISSP material introduces you to all eight domains of advanced-security knowledge covered on the CISSP exam. You will learn how to model threats, assess risks, plan business continuity, protect assets and engineer strong security into complex systems. You will also learn how to protect networks, communications, access and identities; assess and test security; and manage security operations. Once complete, you will have the core skills for designing, implementing and managing IT security for entire organizations.

    Data Science Fundamentals

    The data science fundamentals content teaches the foundational concepts, theory and techniques you need to know to become an effective data scientist. The material is presented with applied, example-driven lessons in Python and its associated ecosystem of libraries, where you get your hands dirty with real datasets and see real results. At the conclusion of the course, you will have analyzed a number of datasets, built a handful of applications and applied machine learning algorithms in meaningful ways to get real results. Along the way, you will learn the best practices and computational techniques used by professional data scientists. More specifically, you will learn how to acquire data that is openly accessible on the internet by working with APIs and parse XML and JSON data to load it into a relational database.
