“Your data may have been breached.”  It seems like that is a headline on an all too frequent basis.  These attacks can be avoided.  In this course we will discuss technologies that can be implemented to effectively prevent hacking attempts, viruses and phishing attempts from becoming a disastrous event.

This course helps you learn the meaning of key terminology and some tools and techniques that can be implemented to mitigate the risk associated with viruses, hacking attempts and phishing schemes. We delve into how attacks work and technology that can be implemented for prevention.  Lastly, we discuss simple controls that can be implemented, critical monitoring that should be performed, and important training that needs to occur.

Learning Objectives
  • Discover controls/processes to prevent breaches from occurring. 
  • Discover how data breaches have occurred.
  • Recognize the differences among various types of protection products.
  • Discover the technology utilized to protect organizations.

Very informative course that covers a great deal of information on protecting your data from a number of schemes including phishing, hacks, etc. The course has some interesting points about high profile incidents that could have been prevented if patch's, proper training was implemented. Great course shows the importances of cyber security

Instructor did way too much reading of the slides and cartoons to the listeners. Excessive amounts of verbage and detail in both slides and framework matrix. I kind of checked out after seeing that matrix. While she did present some great examples of companies who failed to protect their data, I think she just needs to adjust her presentation for those of us who are not computer/IT nerds. She is very very knowledgeable in her field no doubt but I would have preferred a more high level class.

The examples helped a lot because we do get phishing emails. It is very risky because spam tends to get access even with certain restrictions in place. It really does shed light to be very aware of our cyber security.

Good information. Liked knowing how the big data breaches happened. May have enjoyed the course more if not reading directly from the slides.

A great start for a firm looking to deploy remote access. could be more in-depth however I realize it is probably multiple courses

Quoting from Wikipedia doesn't seem professional. There was a lot of terminology thrown around that I have no idea what it means.
