Instances of cybercrime burden our businesses with millions of dollars of annual losses. With the cyber attackers becoming more sophisticated, any lack of emphasis on cybersecurity in an organisation will render it vulnerable to larger financial losses and exposure to reputation risks.
This course, therefore, seeks to introduce students to the rudiments of cybersecurity, making it ideal for those that wish to have well-rounded knowledge about concepts in the field. Along with the basics of practical computer security, we explore areas such as confidentiality, risk assessment, and practical ways to safeguard various computing systems.
In this certification course students will:
• Learn the elements of practical computer security.
• Identify and discuss the principles of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability.
• Explore the mind-set of cyber criminals, and global tracking and hacking run by governments around the globe.
