Course Introduction

Cyber security is how we reduce the risk of criminals attacking us online. As our personal details are increasingly being stored on laptops, phones, and computers, protecting ourselves through cyber security has never been so important.

You will gain first-hand knowledge and understanding of the industry-standard tools and practices for cyber security as this course covers a range of technologies including; computer forensics, secure programming, networking and operating systems, and ethical hacking.
