Cyber Security Course.

Cybersecurity threats affect all areas of any organisation – big or small.

In the present day it has become imperative to protect oneself in cyberspace via a Cyber Security Course. With we offer an essential workshop (Cyber Security Course.) to teach participants the fundamentals of cyber security as well as some of the techniques that should be implemented to make sure their privacy and computer systems are protected.

The fixers and the destroyers in cyberspace are the hackers. We have all heard of ‘grey hats’ the so called hackers with a conscience. The other two types are the ‘black hats’ who malevolently hack into systems because they’re being paid to do it; and the ‘white hats’ who are hackers hired by companies to find their weak spots and fix them.

Malware is the abbreviated term for malicious software. Malware can include worms, viruses, spyware and Trojans. If that’s not enough, there is also phishing, which are scams aiming to obtain personal information by appearing to be a legitimate source. Some scams don’t only want your personal information – they want to steal your identity. Or they want to steal customer lists from companies. This is way it is imperative to be mindful of phishing websites, to have an anti malware program and to be very careful when responding to unsolicited requests for personal information. The most harmful of these scams are to harass people and companies and to cyber stalk individuals. Both are criminal in intent and one should get the authorities involved.

In the Cyber Security Course you learn that there are ways to strengthen access to your computer and to make website access more strictly controlled. Some of these ways include crafting a strong password, using a two step verification process, checking the authenticity of downloads before downloading and checking the legitimacy of websites.

Our mobile phones run on the same technology that computers do, with processors and built in memories and may other components. They are just as vulnerable to the hackers as computers are thus it is imperative that the same precautions be taken with phone passwords.

Now that we have identified and discussed the dangers, we in the Cyber Security Course. will teach participants about preventative measures such as fire-walls and the two types there are. Virtual private networks and how they work and anti-virus and anti-spyware software. We end the workshop by discussing cyber terrorism and cyber espionage and our defenses to hackers. We in the Cyber Security Course will also talk about cryptography, digital forensics, intrusion detection and your legal recourse.
