The World Wide Web and the Internet are fantastic places to converse, conduct business, do research, or simply relax and play a few games. But unfortunately, it's also a place where some individuals would like to create havoc by committing fraud, identity theft, robbery, or to commit more serious crimes such as terrorism. This course looks at the world of Cyber security by examining the types of attacks these ner-do-wells use breach organisational defences and compromise systems. The course then takes a high-level look at how organisations can protect against such attacks by describing how to build, operate and maintain a comprehensive set of security controls. This course will provide you with an introduction to cyber security, hackers, hacking techniques and terminology. Target Audience This course is suitable for IT professionals looking to understand more about online security, but is also a good introductory course for those from a non-IT background who need to understand more about the protection of corporate systems and data.
